The Best Boots for Your Legs
If You Have Short Legs
Look for: Heels or wedges to lengthen the legs visually. “Stick with a streamlined design with vertical accents—zippers or laces—so
the eye moves upward instead of side to side,” says Meghan Cleary, a shoe expert and the author of The Perfect Fit ($13, amazon.com).
Avoid: Square toes, straps, and slouchy cuts that add width.
Try wearing them: With a pencil skirt or slim pants to continue the sleek, elongating effect.
