Recently I’ve had two readers ask me to write about how to flatter thicker ankles:
Sometime it would be great if you could address ‘thick ankles’. They were the bane of my mother’s existence and sometimes I think they are of mine as well. They are why (along with horrible English weather) I almost always choose pants instead of skirts, boots instead of shoes. I can’t be the only person in the world with this trait!
First, absolutely love your blog. Just found it about a week ago, and every spare minute you will finding me reading it …to has so many wonderful tips and suggestions.
Second, I think I have identified my body type an 8 shape. I am a size 16, so have many lumps and bumps….but my main issue is my thick ankles. Cannot find an article talking about shoes for thick legs….think tree stumps. Do you have any suggestions for larger women?
Thanks, and know you have a new avid reader.
It can be a difficult issue as unless you want to wear full length trousers all the time, then they are exposed to the world. With a full length trouser you can wear whatever shoe you like! But how about dressing in skirts and dresses or cropped pants or shorts? Here are my three top tips.
Firstly you want to think about the concept of scale and how if you want to make something appear smaller, you put something larger near it. Therefore, when thinking about shoes instead of fine straps, heels and soles, you want thicker straps, heels and soles to balance your ankle and make it look slimmer.
