The Best Boots for Your Body Type

You might like those boots on sale but before you buy them, know this: boots can be specific on body types as well. Avoid the mistake of investing on the wrong footwear by reading this guide.

Hourglass Shape

You might be able to wear any kind of garment available, but when it comes to boots, it is the complete opposite . Round-toe boots with sturdy cone heels – with platforms or none – are best for your body type.

Banana Shape

Have an athletic or rectangular-shaped body? Even with your lack of curves, you can create the illusion of shape with stiletto-heel boots. Embellished designs are great for your shape, as long as you steer away from models with chunky buckles.

Got long legs? Flatter your stature by going with flat boots.

Apple Shape

Fine-tune your rounded shape by wearing wedge boots. They work with slim legs or thick calves.

Chunky-heeled boots also work well with apple-shaped girls. Embellished and buckled boots are favorable for curvaceous ladies as well.

Pear Shape

Because of your shapely hips and butt, the best boots for you are knee-length ones. The length is ideal for your body type since it makes your legs look longer and leaner. To create a slimmer look, wear a dress that is similar to the color of your knee-length boots.

Petite Frame

If you have a petite frame, you will be glad to know that you can boost your height with high-heeled or platform boots.

Choose a pointy-toe boot if you want to look taller instantly.

Another height-boosting style detail is the vertical zipper. Choose boots with this accent. Just make sure to avoid boots with horizontal-length designs.

Long and Lean

If you have a long, lean frame, you can wear almost anything. But for the best look, stick with ankle-length booties and flat riding boots.

Plus Size

Worried about your shape? With the right boots, you can look slimmer instantly. Ankle-length boots that go below the knees are the best choices for plus size ladies.
