Do Short People Look Good In Boots? What Type Of Boots?

33 posts in this topic

I remember hearing that short girls look best in knee-high boots (the ones that don't cover the knees but falls just underneath it) but they should avoid calf-high boots and ankle boots because it makes their legs look shorter by "cutting" their legs flow. Now I'm hearing that petite girls should never wear knee-high boots and stick to calf-high and ankle boots instead. So which one's true? Does anybody have pictures of short girls (celebrities perhaps?) in boots?

I heard the 2nd part, avoid knee high boots and stick to booties. But if you're petite and quite skinny I can you can get away with more. I've seen a few really short girls 4'10'-4'11 that pull off knee high boots well but they're all really thin.

Namie Amuro is only 5'2 and she pulls off her over the knee boots so well.

When I read "short celebrities", the first person that came in mind is Hayden Panettiere.

She's 5'1"

My ex was kinda short, and used to wear from time to time knee-high boots, i assure you they looked really good on her! So i'm guessing other 'short' girls can also pull it off

I think ankle and mid-length boots are better for short people.

and in the pics bunnylicious posted, I think Hayden looks taller in the shorter boots.

yea I think it all depends on proportions. If you're gonna be wearing really long boots that go up to your knee, then you'll want to wear short shorts or something so it makes ur legs look longer. Since most boots have heels too, that'll help to make you seem less short.

i think girls who are short look better in over the knee, not under the knee.

in that first pic of Hayden, her legs look so much longer in those over the knee boots compared to that lady standing right next to her - same height, but under the knee boot.

It's not a matter of height but the length of the legs. Anyone will look good with ankle high boots, whereas you need long looking legs to look good with knee high ones. If your legs are short and stubby you'll look even more short and stubby by wearing knee high boots.

I always get the calf-length boots. The knee-length boots make me look extra short. -_- I think its because I'm on the chubby side too, that plays a big part in what kind of boots I can wear. Sucks. <_<

I'm really short, and I find that mid-calf boots, and ankle boots are the best.

Somehow, knee boots or over the knee boots seem to make me look a lot shorter.

I'm really skinny also, so maybe that plays a role?

Jeez, I'm confused now too. Everyone is giving mixed answers. But I guess this is one of those things where it all depends on what you wear??? Meaning...proportion is key???? That's what I'm thinking too...but if anyone has a clear and definite answer (aka From the experts themselves), that would be awesome because I need to get some boots before snow arrives =o!

wtf, short people can wear anything.

what matters is how you arrange your clothing.

if you're wearing long boots with pants, it ain't gonna look so great.

if you're wearing long boots with short shorts, then it looks better.

^. the boots looks great on you ! you look 5'2 to me.. :S

i recently ordered a pair of chinese laundry top boots. I know serena in gossip girls wears them but she is 5'7 and i'm only 5'4...

so now i'm worried if the boots would be too high for me..:S i have longs legs for my height but i'm still worried.

Do you guys think it'll be too high for me?

Knee high boots for short people hehe.

We're just fun size!

Ankle boots, etc just make our legs shorter.

And Rachel Bilson is a good example of a short celebrity.

If you look up pictures of her you'll probably find some good examples.

I read that mid-calf boots looks best on short people, not knee high boots.

southbeach82, Blake Lively, is actually 5'10". So the boots might be a little to high on you.

like some other people said, it depends on proportions. it depends on your body shape, what you wear, etc.

if you're short, but have long legs compared to your torso, i'd say you could pull of just about anything.

if you're like me, longer torso and shorter legs, you wanna make sure every boot you wear has a heel hahaha.
