The Casual Ankle Boots

We love them, but do we know how to choose them? If you want to get a pair that is a bit above your ankle you should know that it will make your legs look puffier and shorter. The most narrow part of your legs, your ankle, won’t be showing, so get this type of shoes would be the best option only if you have broad ankles.

The Strappy Shoes

They are the hit almost in every season, but don’t get fooled by the looks of them. These types of shoes are the trickiest because you might think that thin straps will make your legs look more elegant, and it is true. But for mignons this is not the most flattering type of shoes. Having many horizontal lines, they broaden your feet, visually cutting the legs in sections, thus appearing shorter.

The Best Pick

Ankle boots that are just below the ankle will surely be one of the best picks, especially for casual outfits. Another type you should invest in are ankle boots with a front deep cut that will create an illusion of a lower ankle, making the leg appear longer this way.  Still, the best shoes for making your legs look like a supermodel’s are the simple pointed stiletto’s . We suggest you invest in a high quality pair because this will be your secret weapon.
