Toward the end of Summer, we're stuck facing some major shoe dilemmas. Do we continue to wear sandals or take a spin in a cool new pair of booties? On one hand, we cover up our feet for the majority of the year; we'd like to let them breathe for a little while longer. On the other, so many outfits pair well with ankle boots — jeans, skirts, '70s-inspired dresses. They're just so versatile, and they work for nearly every occasion.

Rather than choose, we invite you to slip into the peep-toe bootie, otherwise known as the perfect in-between shoe. Whether you go casual with a chunky heel or rock a sky-high cutout option at a formal event, there's a little something for everyone. Keep scrolling to find a pair that suits your style, as illustrated by our favorite celebs, then continue to wear them throughout the Fall. Shoe dilemma, solved.

Formal

Look for a bootie that's sleek and sophisticated and will pair well with a fancy dress or gown. Something with lace detail is always a great option, but steer clear of anything that has too many ties — you definitely don't want to be doing that in the middle of the dance floor.

Everyday Casual

Chunkier heels will offer more support and won't leave you in pain halfway through the day. Plus, they pair just as well with jeans as they do with a floral skirt.

Date Night

Keep it romantic with a sweet lace-up option, or channel your sexy side with a sky-high stiletto. Either way, your SO's bound to notice you switched it up from those classic pumps.

Even in a professional environment, you can still have fun with your shoes. Stick to a neutral color or a more common print like snakeskin, and add a bit of oomph to your buttoned-up look.

Girls' Night Out

It's time to pull out all the stops and be the fiercest version of yourself. Have some fun with tons of straps or cutouts, and make a statement as soon as you step out of the house.
