There are just certain times when I am just all about boots. I personally love boots and I pair it with different kinds of outfits each time. Still, it depends on my mood if I want to look casual, sweet, sporty or like a rock star – it differs, really! I think wearing boots is sometimes sexier than a pair of heels. Then again, those are just my personal opinion and obsession regarding boots. I’d always choose a pair of ankle boots than a pair of red stilettos heels.
Again, having an awesome looking boots is one thing but to be able to pull off a whole look with your boots is another. After all, there are so many types of boots to choose from, from ankle boots, mid-calf, knee high, above-the-knee, cowboy boots, thigh high type of boots and many more. We all want to look our best, stylish for that matter as we wear boots but there are few things to consider – like our body type. Does your boots suits your body type?
Here are a few tips and guide for you to think about the next time you pair your boots with your outfit:
1. Petite Body Type – If you are on the petite side and have short legs, try wearing boots to elongate your legs by wearing a high heels or platform boots to give you an added height. Wearings boots with pointed toe also helps makes your legs look longer which is just perfect for you. When you are wearing flat boots, go for a dress or skirt that is an inch above the knee for an illusion of a taller you!
2. Hourglass Body Type – If you are an hourglass, wearing a cone heel will help balance out your curves. Also, you might try wearing rounded toe boots to complete a classic hourglass shape figure to your whole look!
3. Pear Body Type – Those who have a pear type of body usually have thick and muscular legs, thus, you would want to look as if you have a slimmer legs, right? Go for a stacked heel boots as it works best for women with curvy calves and ankles. Avoid wearing calf-length boots and go for boots that is an ankle high or those that are below the knee type of boots as it will look better on you.
4. Apple Body Type – If you have broader upper body or have a large bust, you are usually an apple body type and wearing wedges would be your best friend as it visually acts as an anchor and balances your weight at the top of your body and helps even it out – which will look great on you!
Then again – you can always wear any type of boots regardless your body type, I believe it will depend on your taste and style. Try it out yourself and don’t stick to just one type of boots – you’ll never know, right?
