STYLE: Beautiful Booties for Women after 50

black ankle booties

By Susan "Honey" Good

I must confess, dear readers, that I frequently compliment my girlfriends' booties :)

I'm not ashamed to admit that I adore the gentle slope of a chic bootie, whether crafted of leather or suede, in shades ranging from the most subtle blush of pink to the deepest hue of ebony.

And now, as my sweet home Chicago begins to boast a crispness in the air that hints at fall's undeniable reign, bootie season is fully upon us.

Today, I'm sharing some absolutely stunning booties in the one hue I consider a must for fall and winter, black. Best of all, these beautiful booties are priced as affordably as $59 to well over $1,000... if your budget allows.

Pair them with jeans, trousers, even tights and skirts. But first, I want to share some style inspiration from women who -- like so many of us -- have found that impeccable personal style never gets "old."
