Boots are an essential piece of every girl’s closet no matter your size or shape. This season, don’t shy away from boots if you’re petite—just take a page out of the Goldilocks style handbook and find a pair that’s just right for you.
Keeping reading to learn which 3 boot styles are perfect for petite frames.
1. Make The Ankle Bootie a Staple
Ankle booties are (and should be!) a closet staple for every woman. Think you’re too petite to pull them off? Think again! Try a flat Chelsea boot—its a minimal style (ie: no bells and whistles) that won’t overwhelm or distract from your style or frame. Pro tip: Add the illusion of length to your lower half in a monochrome outfit. Think: all black everything like black jeans & black ankle booties.
2. Yes, You Can Wear Tall Boots
Petite frames don’t need to shy away from tall boots! The key to this style? Look for a pair that hits 1 to 2 inches below your kneecap. If you’re looking for some added height, go for a stacked heel or even a wedge to add lift.
3. Don’t Be Afraid of Over-the-Knee Boots
We’ve heard from some of our petite clients that they don’t think over-the-knee boots are an option for them. Think again! Try an over-the-knee style instead of knee-highs—the longer the boot, the more elongated your frame will look. And, the best part? You can have fun with shorter hemlines! Consider the over-the-knee style as added coverage and play with dress and skirt lengths.
