Let us be the first to tell you: there’s no rule that ankle booties are off limits for curvy calves. With so many bootie styles this season, there’s a pair for every shape! With just a few simple style tricks, you can don your favorite booties with confidence—and make your legs look longer at the same time.
Choose Styles with a Heel or a Pointed Toe
Even better if you can snag a pair with both! When you lift your heels, your calf muscles engage, so high-heeled shoes will help your calves look more shapely. With the added balance of a lengthier toe and dark skinny pants, you’ll create evenly proportioned legs that walk in a fashion-forward way.
Wear a Bootie in Your Natural Skin Tone
In the mood to show some skin? Keep in mind the eye will naturally stop wherever there is a drastic color contrast, which may draw extra attention to your calves and ankles. To avoid this, look for a color of booties closest to your skin tone to create a long, clean color line that blends your calves to the tips of your toes.
Match Your Bottoms to Your Booties
Monochromatic looks are a fabulous way to camouflage our least favorite features and draw attention to the whole package. Dip your feet in this tonal trend with ankle boots that match your favorite tights or denim. Try some seasonal burgundy booties with a matching burgundy skirt and tights, or rock a pair of on-trend grey denim and finish with grey suede booties.
Wear What Makes You Feel Fabulous
It’s important to remember that fashion is a fun tool to show off your personality and unique style. If a pair of shoes give you a Cinderella moment, wear them!
