How to Wear Tall Boots for Curves

A special reader of mine asked for advice on how a curvy woman (with an hourglass shape) can pick the right boot to wear with jeans {Thanks, Heather for the GREAT suggestion!}  I am a proud owner of my curvy body and have had quite a bit of experience in this area. :) I've tried  many boots with jeans to find that a successful combo is the result of the right cut of jean accentuated by height.  Much consideration for these two areas will put you on the right path to your perfect boot. So, here are my tips on how to wear tall boots for your curves!
The Best Type of Jeans to Wear With Tall Boots are Skinny, Jeggings and Straight Leg.  These cuts have less material to tuck inside boots, which make it ideal and most comfortable for you to wear. 

Fundamental Figure Rules: Tall boots in general emphasize the hip and thigh area of the figure.  First thing you'll want to do is wear jeans with a medium to dark denim wash.  This will not only create a glamourous and polished look, but it will minimize the curviness of the hip and thigh area.   You'll look slender and balanced.

To Embellish Or Not?  The goal is to keep a balanced figure. Anything with excessive amounts of fur, lacing on the side, buckles, chains or studs may be too distracting and may disrupt the balance of your figure.  Keeping embellishments to a minimum is always better.  

Heel vs. Flat....I must say both are equally fabulous and work well for curvy fashionistas.  A way to understand which boot is best for you depends on the occasion. Heels are considered a little more dressy.  Are you going to a holiday party? Heels work fantastically! Do you want a comfortable and chic look on the weekends, perhaps running errands? Go for the flats!

Color Counts....Black, Brown & Gray will be your best bet! Anything too bright, like, turquiose or green will throw off your outfit and offset your curves.  If you want to incorporate color into your overall outfit, wear a scarf or bright accessories.

Extra Style Tips: Short Fashionistas (5'-5" and below) shouldn't wear boots over the knee area.  Try going below the knee like these fabulous mid-calf boots pictured above.  Also, take advantage of pointy toe boots.  It has this fabulous power to lengthen your legs to make you appear taller.  {I, personally love this feature since I'm only 5'2!} 

Again, thank you, Heather for submitting your question and I hope this helps everyone determine which boot works best for your curves! I hope you all have a fantastic day!
