Tips for women with short legs

How to choose and how to wear ankle boots?

Ankle boots are extremely trendy shoes this season. Unfortunately, they may not work for women, who don’t have long legs and make them look even shorter if you choose the wrong model. You just need to find correct footwear and pair it with clothes properly.

  • When choosing ankle boots that will fit you, try to avoid square toe, strappy details and other things that will add width and will shorten the look of your legs visually.
  • The higher the heel – the better it is for you. High heels will make your legs look longer and slimmer. If you don’t like heels, try to find a model with a platform, which will give you height without discomfort and pain. Boots that have hidden platforms and high heel also will add height, and they are usually more comfortable.
  • Also, you can try shoes with vertical accents or pointed toe.

What outfit will complement your look in pair with ankle boots?

  • Dresses.
    The dress is a great choice, but pay attention to its length. Give preference to short dresses if you decide to wear ankle boots, otherwise, your legs will look short and stubby.
  • Jeans.
    You can pair regular jeans or skinny jeans with ankle boots without hesitation. Just make sure that the length of the jeans will end where ankle boots begin.
  • Skirts.
    If you want to wear a skirt with ankle boots just avoid pencil skirts and midi-models.
