Style Inspiration: 5 Ways to Wear Jeffrey Campbell ‘Lita’ Booties
By Claire

It seems everyone owns a pair of Jeffrey Campbell Lita Booties! The affordable heels are edgy, funky, comfortable, and a wardrobe staple for numerous Fashion Bomb readers.
Jasmine says, “I’m going to the Bayou Classic (annual football game against HBCU’s Grambling and Southern in New Orleans, LA) and I need a little help with putting an outfit together. I have Jeffrey Campbell Lita Booties in Taupe and just want to create around it. Any help would be fantastic!!!”
Instead of just proposing one idea, I thought I’d offer five! For your purposes, I’d go a relatively simple route, balancing skinny jeans with a statement jacket and bag:

The shoes definitely give me a 70′s feel, so I’d play them up with wide legged light washed jeans and a faux fur jacket:

If you prefer a feminine take on the shoes, ramp up the retro feel with a patterned dress and a colored faux fur vest:

Scale the retro look back a bit with a leather mini and faux fur vest (can you tell how much I love faux fur?!?):

And if you have the black version, play up the shoe’s wooden heel by pairing a brown dress and cape with black tights:

Which look is your fave?

    I love how you put the previous bombshells in there!

  2. Caribbelle says:

    I’m addicted to lita’s, I’ve gotten the mint and the tapestry pair. They’re actually really versatile and I get some cute looks with them. If you’re thinking about getting them, you should, they’re extremely comfortable and light.

  3. Mely B says:

    The Bombshell in the last pic looks a little like Fantasia – she is gorgeous and so is Fanty. In fact, Fanty should steal the Bombshell’s steelo – her hair & makeup are on point!

  4. Mona L says:

    The outfits surrounding the shoes are STELLAR I love em all but I just HATE those JC shoes.

  5. Marsha D says:

    Love it!!! But I’m way too tall for those boots…they’re hot though….

  6. Marsha D says:

    And my favorite look is the last one…Tres Chic!

  7. Lioness says:

    Great outfits. Ugly ass shoe.

  8. Kitty B. says:

    Thank you soooooooo much for this post. I have the Cosmic color Jeffery Campbells in this same style, but did know what to pair it with, now I have an idea **bbm whew face**

  9. Nicole says:

    Agreeing with Lioness and Mona L. Great outfits, but I think the shoe is ugly. lol I’ve never liked Litas. And I love Jeffrey Campbell so it pains me to say that.

  10. Kapri_H says:

    Litas are horrid shoes. :(

  11. Crystal says:

    i have the taupe suede lita’s and i find i reach for them soooo much! people stop me left and right over these shoes, it’s ridiculous. they can really do no wrong, it’s a very simple shoe.

  12. Ruth says:

    love this!

  13. sun.kissed says:

    I love the look with the green dress! LOVE!

  14. ladyshawann says:

    Pass me the green dress,thank you.

  15. luxcheri says:

    I be indifferent about Lita’s. They are cute, but on ppl w/ small feet. If you wear anything from a 9 and up, good luck, them thangs make your feet look humongous!! The outfits are cute though : )

  16. Deb says:

    I’m sorry but those shoes look like the correction shoes they made for people with a club foot! But, to each their own I guess….

  17. Alexis says:

    Claire AWESOME post! I love these boots!!

  18. Nicole says:

    Love this Claire!..Great ideas I know I will be using!!

  19. yvonne says:

    i like the second to last and the last bombshells look. those shoes, you either really love em or really hate em. (i really really love em)

  20. Indigo says:

    These are some ugly ass shoes..

  21. Indigo says:

    @ DEB…LOL 100%

  22. let's eat cake says:

    I think Litas are pug ugly IDGAF!

    Also, i’m not some basic ass dresser either. I know what’s on trend and “get” them I just think they are hideous. Making your feet looks as grotesque as humanly possible doesn’t mean you have style. These are the high heel equivalent of Uggs and this dude Jeffery got you thinking you’re fly.

    Out of all the pretty unique shoes this shit had to catch on. wtf.

  23. Porsche says:

    I love these booties, but I just feel EVERYONE has ‘em. So, I’ll pass :-(

  24. I’ve labeled the Jeffrey Campbell Lita saturation an epidemic, but offer a luxe alternative: the Isabel Marant Manly boot. They’re bound to set you apart in a sea of these clunky clogs. Check out how I style them here (

  25. Jihan says:

    I detest Litas, but Claire, you made ‘em look good.

  26. I’m still not a fan of these shoes! LOL Never have been, never will be!! I don’t get the shape, Not to say some ladies don’t know how to hook it up, but I guess I just hate that Everybody and their momma has these shoes, it’s the jordans of platforms back in the 90′s when everybody had a pair. I do like the outfits put together around the shoe though.

  27. Apple says:

    Cosign with Jihan.

  28. Jen says:

    very good outfits and great post. I want a pair but EVERYONE has them lol. Its like the Jessica Simpson Dany’s…. amazing shoe but everyone has them :(

  29. Kikidiva says:

    I love the outfits, the shoe is ugly AF.

  30. Sticky-n-Sweet says:

    I love the outfits, but LAWD I can’t deal with Jeffrey Campbell shoes! I’d feel like a clown college dropout.

  31. Mona L says:

    ILY @let’s eat cake !!!!!!!!!!

  32. binks says:

    LOVE the outfits but hate the shoes, they look like Frankenstein’s shoes.

  33. Chimee says:

    I’m an S.U. Alumni ! YAY

  34. Mrs Windy city says:

    I despise those Lita’s with every fiber of my bean. But I give props to the girls who can make them look cute — very few may I add

  35. Martinique_Fr says:

    I’m NOT a fan of Lita Booties at all, but I really like the 5 different ensembles.

  36. Dobe says:

    That Anna Sui dress is IT!

  37. me says:

    These work on petite, young girls with small feet. Everybody else is supposed to ‘hate’ them because they would look ridiculous on you anyway.

  38. Thanks for featuring me again, Claire. I absolutely love my Litas. They go with so many different looks and I wear them everywhere from work to grocery shopping. They are very comfortable and I can keep them on all day without my “dogs barking” lol. I want another pair in Royal Blue Suede!

  39. shelly says:

    Yes Claire, YASSSS! lol. I’m loving four out of the five looks. (The 70′s look is before my time, lol, but I know plenty of women that would rock that look to the fullest =)

  40. Jasmine says:

    Thank you so much!!!!!! XO

  41. wyo says:

    Those are some great outfits. I like the Litas because i love the height +comfort. But i tried them on and they made my big ol’ feet look like boats. I got the “Tardy” instead. I’m still thinking of the litas, but maybe in a colorblock pattern or something to make them not look so long.

  42. money says:

    They are all hot but way too expensive

  43. Empress says:

    The outfits are sooo cute…But I’m not a fan of the Jefferey Campbell..ROACH STOMPERS!..LOL

  44. Hillary says:

    So many great ways to wear one thing!

  45. Nunyabizniz says:

    I love how everyone either LOVES or HATES the Litas. That’s what makes the shoe hot in my opinion and I respect that. You wouldn’t catch me dead in a pair of Litas though… *sips tea*

  46. Bribri says:

    LOL i called them cockroach killers. There nice in theory but ugly in person.

  47. Ronnie says:

    You had fun with this one! Great!!

  48. Niveyah-Rose says:

    You have no idea how grateful i am for this…….i love the JC Litas but i was not sure how to style them.
    Thanks for the ideas

  49. Nneka says:

    I think these shoes are severely overrated. Not one for me at all. I just don’t get why they are even a thing!

  50. Lolodoll says:

    Not a fan of the Litas. Classic case of folks jumping on the brand bandwagon. We see this all the time with the major brands. Something fugly but folks wearing it because of the label. I love the outfits suggested though…
