BEST BOOTS FOR YOUR BODY TYPE

Have you ever wondered how to pull off a certain type of boot but didn’t know how to wear it or what to pair it with? We’ll here at Heels.com we believe its important to find the right type of boot for your body type. The trick to getting it: finding the one boot that works best for your body type

STEP 1. Find your body type

The two most important characteristics to consider before you decide which boot is best are your height and your body shape. These features are very important to identify before you try to choose a certain type of boot for your body.

HOURGLASS -When your body measurements are proportional around the hips and bust, while having a small or narrow waist line.

INVERTED TRIANGLE -Your body measures wider at the upper part from bust, to shoulders, while having a flat waist line and narrower hips, or you gain weight faster around the bust area.

PEAR or TRIANGLE -Your body measures bigger around the hips, thighs and rear area, and you gain weight at these places easily, while having a smaller waist, bust and shoulders.

RECTANGLE -If you find your hips, waist, bust and shoulders are equal in measures, and you gain weight around the stomach and your whole body equally, with no defined curve lines then you are defined as rectangular.

APPLE -Your body gains weight around the midsection (that is the stomach, waistline and rear), and face, and you have bigger measurements from the waist and up to your shoulders, with smaller hips and slimmer legs.

STEP 2. How to Pick the right boots

ANKLE LENGTH

This type of Boot is one of my absolute favorites and is extremely versatile. This boot can be worn to different types of occasions and are extremely practical and comfortable. They also can be worn by different body types whether your, curvy and tall or petite and short. The only tip is if you are short you must wear pants in the same hue as the boot giving the illusion of longer legs. If you don’t follow this tip the boots can end up making you look shorter.

CALF LENGTH

These boots accentuate the thin body type. They will add a great amount of volume to your ankles and calves balancing out your thin frame. It adds sexy curves and gives the illusion of a more curvaceous figure and gives you a more feminine look.

KNEE LENGTH

These boots are perfect for woman with curvy figures. Especially if you have a more pear shaped body you will appreciate the effect of the knee high boots. For a more classic sophisticated look you would want to choose a boot with a higher heel. For a more casual feel you may choose a flat boot paired with skinny denim or leggings.

OVER-THE-KNEE

These specific type of boot were made for tall and slender woman who would like to add a bit more edge to their look. Shorter woman should avoid this type of boot because it will appear shorter than usual and if you are curvy this boot will emphasize your body type. This boot looks great with a mini dress or chunky knit and skinny jeans.
