This season I have noted a lot of mid-calf dress-boot styles. Generally I would say no to the boots because they chop the leg up and mess with proportions. However, I am tempted…so cute… can you show some flattering ways to wear this type of boot, besides the under pant and with same color legging?
You’re right – mid-calf boots are shortening. Here are a few tips to help pull them off:
- The key to wearing ankle and mid-calf boots is to make sure your skirts and dresses or shorts are shorter and sit above the knee.
- A heel is also a valuable asset in adding back some length to your legs.
- Tone them to your tights to make the shortening horizontal less obvious.
- If you have very slim calves they are also much easier to wear. They should be avoided by those with full calves as they add horizontals to an already wider area.
