What Boots to Buy for Your Leg Shape

Now that summer is over...

Let's just start by saying there are no right or wrong answers when it comes to picking out your winter boots. If you love the style on your body then that is all that matters. However there are some tips you can follow if you're not sure what to look for in your new boots - but remember this is all just advice. No rules here!

Curvy calves

If you're muscular or curvy in the calf area, pull-up boots can be an absolute nightmare to contend with. Do your legs a favour and avoid stuffing them into a restrictive space by opting for boots with some kind of give, whether elastic, laces or buckles.

Better yet, choose a style of boot that has been made specifically for bigger calves.

If shorter boots are your jam, go for a pair with a chunky heel to add some height and stick to ankle height rather than mid-calf to really show off your legs to full effect.

Thin calves

If your calves are less curvy, find a pair with laces rather than elastic to ensure you don't need to pull your boots up your leg every five minutes.

While boots that finish on your calf are tricky, the tall ankle boot, or a pair that finishes about three quarters of the way down your leg are the perfect compromise - and totally of the moment - over-the-knee boots are also a great option.

Short legs

OK so here's the part where we say "if you have short legs, wear heels!" But we're pretty sure everyone knows that by now and not ALL petite girls want to totter around in heels all day.

Flat boots are still a great option for shorter girls, we're particularly into styles that dip at the front or sides to show off even more leg.

If you want a longer boot, something that clings to the leg will always give the illusion of extra height and it's an added bonus if there's a zip or some kind of horizontal detail to draw the eye up.

Long legs

Don't worry, we're not about to tell you to stop wearing heels if you're over 5'8" because your height does not determine your love of heels (pretty sure that's Shakespeare).

Flat over-knee boots on long legs do scream Kate Moss vibes though and we love a long-line ankle boot with a mid heel on taller girls.
