Yes, Those Boots Make You Look Fat. These 6 Won't.

No matter where we are, boots are everywhere. And with so many options – flat boots, ankle booties, over the knee boots – it’s hard to find which one suits you. A pair of unflattering boots can ruin even the sexiest outfit. So make sure you follow our tips for finding the perfect boots for your shape:

Wide Calves:

Not everyone can have skinny legs a la Nicky Hilton so for you wider-calf women, find a boot with a wide opening – giving your leg extra room, which is super flattering. We’re digging these Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent Tate Suede Boots ($475).

Big Feet:

For those of us with feet that resemble those of the abominable snowman, opt for a pair with a round toe. These ModCloth Don’t Mess Boots ($69.99) also have a chain on the heel, a distraction from your foot.

Petite:

Instead of looking for a pair of tall boots, try a pair that hit your mid-calf. These Charles by Charles David Avitar Booties ($90) will show off your legs as well as add a few inches.

Tall:

The longer the legs, the taller the boots is your mantra. Since over the knee boots are ideal for your legs, grab this pair of BCBGeneration Fancy Boots ($198) and let your legs do all of the talking.

Skinny Calves:


Lucky you! With your skinny legs, get a pair of over the knee boots that show off the shape of your leg. Steve Madden’s Maryn Leather Boots ($229) fit like a glove and draw attention to your leg with the back buckles.
