Addiction Seven: ANKLE BOOTS

Having always been a big fan of knee high boots I have to say lately I’ve found them a bit much and slightly dated. Ankle boots I feel are the way forward they’re fresher and just more NOW. Whether it’s a pair of wellies (like the Marc by Marc Jacobs pair that I’m desperate to get above) or a biker boot like these Carvelas (which I’ve been wearing to death this spring) shorter is definitely the way to go.

  1. Do ankle boots work for shorter body types too? Or will they only make you look shorter?

  2. That’s a very good question! I know exactly what you mean as I have short legs too. The key is to find an ankle boot that doesn’t go too high up your ankle. You want one that has a low front or even a shoe bootie.

    Also try wearing the same coloured tights or trousers that will help to give the illusion of longer legs. I hope that helps!

  3. My sister has short legs too but I don't think her ankle boots make her look shorter:)
