Knee-high is forever and thigh-high is for getting noticed, but neither takes the prize for silhouette of the season. That one goes to the bootie. (Or sometimes the "shootie.")
The bootie just barely skims the ankle and works with jeans, dresses and tights. It takes every form and embodies every look this fall, from feminine to dominatrix to, dare we say it, conservative. Booties can take you from day to night, and they're an absolute killer with skinny jeans.
Oh, and with that bootie, there's nothing wrong with showing a little toe.
