One of my resolutions for 2019 is to be more thoughtful with my outfits. Last year, I worked from home a whole lot, so I became really dependent on pajamas and yoga pants. When it came time to leave the house, anything that wasn't stretchy or fuzzy felt uncomfortable, and my style game majorly suffered because of it. This year, I made a promise to myself to make more of an effort to dress in cute outfits, but luckily, that doesn't have to mean letting go of my beloved leggings. Instead, I looked to shiny, trendy accessories, like metallic boots, to change my game up. Ahead, here are 10 Metallic Booties Under $100 that dress up everything from leggings and faded band tees, but also look fab with any dress or fur coat on nights out.
In case you're having a hard time mentally pairing metallic booties with the items in your current wardrobe, think of them this way: Metallic booties are to winter as nude pumps are to spring. They go with everything, pretty much — metallics in silver, gold, gunmetal and rose gold are essentially neutrals, so they pair with all colors, denim, and prints like a dream. Not to mention, they give your outfit that extra oomph it needs from time to time. Scroll down and shop booties in all shapes, sizes, and metallic finishes, all at prices that won't break the bank!
