Boot Height - From Casual To Sexy

Author: ron king

Boots are timeless fashion footwear that can be worn year round. Today you can pick styles in classic and up-to-the-minute trends, constructed of leather or artificial materials. Today, boots are made for more than just winter wear or foot protection. The sky's the limit for the style you prefer! Here's some hints for finding the perfect height for you. Introducing the ankle, mid calf, knee and above the knee boots!

Ankle boots are very comfortable and fashionable, and can be worn by anyone, making them the most flexible style. The key to wearing them in the most fashionable way is to pair them with clothing that matches them. Almost all ankle boots look better when they are worn with pants that cover their top. If you don't like the bulk or the heel of a taller boot, you can opt for these. When wearing pants, many people won't realize they are short. You will occasionally see a celebrity or other fashion forward person wearing ankle boots with a short mini skirt or other retro attire. While this is accepted, you have to be self-assured and discriminating when trying this fashion move.

Mid calf boots are great for many people, but you should know that they could make short legs seem even shorter. They are a flattering combination for that skirt that falls an inch or two below your knee. They will allow a bit of calf to show in between, but not enough to make you look out of style. Mid calf boots are comfortable yet fashionable. You are able to find them in Western styles to wear with that jean skirt and jersey. You can also find them in sophisticated black heel styles for your work attire. No matter what you do, be sure that you keep your skirt hem right under the knee when wearing them. You can also use them with jeans or pants. Try tucking them in or pulling them out over your boots for a variety of styles.

Knee boots were once thought to be so sexy that only exotic dancers wore them. Now, knee boots are hot and sophisticated, utilizing height to show off your legs. They work best on long legs. Short legs can look too short when wearing them, unless you are wearing a very short skirt. They can slim your legs and create an exotic look. We are also seeing them worn with skinny jeans tucked into them, which is very trendy at the moment. You can wear knee boots with short dresses, skirts, or pants. Just be sure not to wear them with long dresses, unless the dress has a side slit in the skirt, in which case these boots are ideal!

Only the leggy can wear boots that come higher the knee. Short people who attempt to wear boots higher than the knee will find that they will hit their waist before they get a good fit! These boots should be set aside for going to the clubs or impressing a hot date. They should not typically be worn to work or to a conservative event. They are a little risque and can be interpreted as being too alluring. Be mindful of these things and wear them in a suitable setting.

As you can see, boots come in many distinct heights. Remember that different boot height works best with special clothing. If you enjoy boots, consider getting several pairs in a variety of heights. Unless you are tall with long legs, you may not be able to don all heights in the most fashionable style. Heel height is also important. Don't select shoes that you cannot walk in comfortably. A pointed, rounded or squared toe will create several looks and comfort level! Consider whether you will be wearing your boots with a dress or pants, for security from the elements or just for fun. Cost may also be a consideration, and a high quality pair of boots may cost several hundred dollars. Whatever style of boots you decide on, go with what you think appears best and what feels most pleasing for you. If you execute that, you will be wearing those boots with style.
