Should Short Women Wear Ankle Boots?

By September 17, 2010

Follow me on:


Should short women wear ankle boots? Although ankle boots may not be the ideal shoe for petites, they're popular and fun, and petites don't like to be left out of a fashion trend, so what's the answer?

Short women can tweak this trend a bit by wearing ankle boots with leggings or tights that match the boots. This will help to create the illusion of a longer leg. Petites can also wear ankle boots with pants or boot-cut jeans. Wearing ankle boots with skinny jeans won't make the legs appear longer, and neither will wearing ankle boots with bare legs and a short dress or skirt.
