Types of Boots to Buy to Make Legs Look Longer

Save

Most women love to wear boots. They are comfortable, wearable in all kinds of weather and can be matched with lots of different clothes. Wearing the right kind of boot with the right kind of clothes is the key to making your legs look longer. Most women do not have supermodel legs, but if you mix and match your clothes and boots correctly you can certainly give the impression of legs that are far longer than they really are.

Knee-High Boots

Knee-high boots will make your legs look longer and slimmer. Knee-high boots are very adaptable and go well over skinny jeans, with a dress or skirt, or even with a pair of shorts. If you are quite short, wear knee-high boots with a heel. The heel doesn't have to be really high; make sure you're comfortable. If you are shorter and choosing a boot with a heel, make sure the heel is the same color as the boot, as different colored heels will make you look smaller. If your legs are a little stout, wear boots that are a little loose, as this will make your legs look thinner.

Boots & Clothing in the Same Color

Wearing boots of any length that are of the same color as your clothes will help your legs to look longer. Darker colors such as black, charcoal and brown will be more slimming than lighter colors. An outfit of this type might incorporate long black boots up to knee height, skinny black jeans or leggings and a black top that hangs just over the top of your thighs. The reason this works to elongate your body is that it makes your body into a long, unbroken line.

Long Over-the-Knee Boots

Boots that go up to the upper thighs look especially sexy when worn with black pantyhose and a mini skirt. By covering up most of the legs and wearing a mini skirt, you will give the illusion of much longer legs. The great thing about this look is that it actually shows off very little, but promises much more. The tiny hint of thigh between the mini skirt and long boots should make you feel confident, slim-legged and sexy. If you don't like skirts, try wearing thigh-high boots with skinny jeans and a big boyfriend cardigan.

Ankle-High Boots

Ankle-high boots are trickier to get right. On the catwalk, long-legged models wear them and they always look great. If you have shorter or stouter legs, though, you have to be careful how you wear ankle boots. If you are confident and don't mind showing your legs, you can wear them with mini skirts, shorts and short dresses. If you prefer to cover up, wear ankle boots with skinny jeans or try a long skirt. Don't wear anything knee length, such as capri shorts or a mid length skirt, with ankle boots; this will cut your legs in half and make your legs look shorter.

Wear ankle boots with either a very short skirt or a very long one to elongate legs.
