Choosing ankle boots
Ankle boots are flat or heeled boots that end somewhere around the ankle. Some styles hit the bottom of the ankle, others hit just above and some have a little cut out around the ankle area. Ankle boots suit a lot of people but to pull off the look successfully you have to find the style that suits your body type and personal style of fashion. So with the right style and colour of boot, they’ll look great with any outfit.
When buying woman's ankle boots, you first need to find out which type of boots suit your body type best so you are able to nail the one pair that’ll look great for you. Here’s a little insight into what boots work best for different body types/shapes..
– If your body is a pear shape, wedge or heel boots will usually work best because it will prevent the attention from being drawn downwards.
– If your body is a inverted triangle shape (wider shoulders and slimmer hips), you want to draw the attention away from your upper body and down to your legs. A way of doing this is by wearing brightly coloured or embellished boots.
– With a rectangle shape body type, you want to add curves, any boots that have a lot of detail are the best choice.
– Bright coloured boots that are embellished work best for an apple shaped body.
