Trying out Angie's suggestion to wear Black ankle pants with black booties.

And I'm not convinced it's working for me. Perhaps it's my black ankle pants - are they a bad length? Or too wide?

Shown here with three pairs of what I think almost qualify (maybe) as black booties (and one pair of burgundy booties, and a pair of black sneakers).

#1 suede oxfords - pointy toe and a slight heel. Is the top too low to go with these?

#2 leather boots - almond toe, but I think the shaft is too tall - and don't find the silhouette flattering here - it looks.... top heavy?

#3 higher heeled oxfords - also pointy toed, but still more shoes than boots, right?

#4 burgundy beetle booties - maybe the only honest booties, and probably the best of the lot - but not black?

#5 Trying it with sneakers too. Just for fun.

Is it the pants? Do any of these work? I think I'm gonna go change to bf jeans.
