Calf length boots are one of the hardest shoe styles to pull off for the simple reason that they cut the leg off right in the middle of the shin which can make people look stumpy. Calf length boots are also hard to pair with outfits since one needs to be very careful with the kind of silhouette they choose when wearing this kind of shoe. However, these boots can be awfully flattering if worn right and make one heck of a fashion statement with fall/winter ensembles. Almost anyone can wear calf length boots as long as they remember a few simple rules.
To create a long, lean line when wearing calf length boots, one only needs to pick out boots with a stiletto heel and a pointed toe. This has an instantly elongating effect on the wearer and provides the necessary comfort during the colder season. Slouching calf length boots often get a bad rep for being slightly baggy though they can help one even out their body proportions very nicely. When pairing a calf boot with dress or a skirt, the simplest rule is to simply expose the kneecap.
Shorter hemlines make the best pairing with mid calf boots though anything slightly above the knee helps balance out the proportions of one’s silhouette without leaving them looking too frumpy. One of the best tricks to making calf length boots work for you is to wear boots in a similar or complimentary color to your leg-wear Be it leggings, tights or jeans, matching the color of your leg-wear to your boots would help you create a longer and leaner look instantly.
