How to Style Boots & Booties

Since how to wear boots and booties is our most popular question, we decided to show you even more styled looks. It is sale time, so we have tons of deals on boots and booties just in time for winter – I mean, technically, winter started December 21 so really what most people consider boot season has just begun. But we also have some great new inventory as well, even some new “spring” booties from AGL that aren’t on sale, but we wanted to include. It is such a great time to shop, there are great deals and there are new pieces.

There are so many different items these days that you can wear for more than one season. I mean, we all know jeans are versatile but so are many other pieces. Boots and booties are not just for the winter – and so many dresses, shirts, and pants can be worn three seasons, some even four. If you ever have trouble styling an item, we are here to help. And keep sending in your suggestions for styled posts!

Don’t forget we have new hours for January and February, Monday through Saturday we are open 10am to 6pm and Sunday 12pm to 5pm. Of course, our website is always open and we offer local delivery and free shipping on items over $100.



  • The latest from Elizabeth
I spent the first part of my career as a copy-writer who helped elected officials brag about their support for entrepreneurs. Then I decided to get off the printed page and do it myself. The Shoe Hive made a splash on the fashion scene in Washington, and was named the region’s best shoe store in its first year. Fourteen years later, I have tripled the store’s size and also opened a sister store, The Hive. At The Hive, we offer clothing lines that are sophisticated and approachable like Rag & Bone, Tibi, Raquel Allegra, Ulla Johnson and Veronica Beard. We have tried to fill our racks with clothing you will want to wear all the time, elevated basics that are worth the investment.

Heard the buzz? The Shoe Hive & The Hive are a pair of luxury boutiques in Old Town Alexandria. Featuring both big name designers like Rag & Bone and Stuart Weitzman and smaller brands like AGL and L'Agence, our unique selection and impeccable service are what set us apart.
