While boots are one of those wardrobe essentials that are universally flattering, there are some styles that look better on certain body types. This may seem sort of daunting as you think you shouldn't wear certain boots if have a particular body style, but what it really means is that there are options out there that are more flattering and will make you look better than ever!
Which Style Boot Best Fits Your Body Type?
1. Muscular Legs
Chances are, you've worked hard to achieve those muscles and you want to show them off! The best way to do this is with a heeled ankle boot. It's basically the same principle as wearing high-heeled shoe as the heel helps contract your muscle.
This heeled bootie by Indigo Rd. is perfect to show off your muscles.
2. Stout Legs
If you have shorter legs that are stout, you need to do two things: Add height with a heel and add length to your legs. This can be achieved with a boot. An ankle boot won't chop your legs in half making them appear larger than they actually are. This also helps girls who can't always find a wide-calf option. With an ankle boot, you never have to worry about that! If you opt for a tall boot, make sure it doesn' t hit you mid-calf. Find a boot that comes up to just below the knee.
This bootie by Indigo Rd. is perfect because it has a slight heel that adds a little length to your leg. Also, the shaft is short so it doesn't visually chop your legs off, making this a win-win.
If you are tall, boots become a personal preference. You can stick to a flat or low heel to let your natural height shine, or you can go with a heel to add additional height. The choice is yours.
4. Slim legs
If you are in this minority (we are super jealous!) you really can't go wrong, but an over-the-knee boot is going to give you the illusion of more curve in the thigh.
We recommend a boot with some sort of heel to boost your height. Opt for the ankle boot or taller boot rather than one that hits you mid-calf for the most flattering look.
The Wildflower boot by Ariat is perfect for the petite girl. It has the heel height and shaft length you need to best flatter your figure.

Taylor Swift's Web site is blank. Her Twitter profile exists, but there's no profile picture-- same goes for Facebook. Don't get me started on her Instagram-- she deleted all of the photos.
Just days ago Swift won her sexual assault case against a Denver DJ who groped her before a 2013 concert. Before that, we saw Swift in February during her only scheduled concert of the year. There was a brief commotion over the possibility of her being carried out of her New York City apartment in a suitcase and she supposedly has a new boyfriend, but really-- Swift has been totally off-the-grid.
Swift hasn't tweeted since May and her few Instagram posts this year were about new music from friends.
But, now a total blackout of her online existence? It can only mean one thing-- she's about to shut it down, only to bring it back to life like never before.
Forget everything you thought you knew about Swift because this is going to be epic.
Kelsea Ballerini knows what's up. Not only has she become a massive country music star in the last couple of years, she's also becoming known for her down-to-earth advice and very approachable vibe. A couple of years ago, people started comparing her legs to Carrie Underwood's-- a compliment for the ages, sure. But, when asked her workout routine she just said she walks her dog and tries to go easy on the chicken tenders every now and then. (Results definitely not guaranteed.)
When it comes to beauty advice, Kelsea's not trying to talk about some product you can only buy in France under a bridge from someone who once walked past Gwyneth Paltrow-- she's throwing out real helpful advice.
Kelsea told the Grand Ole Opry that it's all about washing your face-- simple, yet effective.
But, really, she started slinging knowledge when she shared some advice from her mom, "My mom told me when I was younger... you either play up the eyes or the lip, but you can't do both because you'd look crazy."
This is the type of advice that should hang on the walls of middle schools everywhere-- kind of like the "hang in there" cat poster.
Everywhere you turn these days there is excitement for the solar eclipse. I can't blame people either. A total solar eclipse is a once-in-a-generation event so unique that people take vacations and travel oversees to catch them. But with all the buzz about the solar event, a lot of us still don't know exactly what it is. So who better to educate us that 8 year-old genius and Global Science Ambassador Romanieo Golphin, Jr?
Kip Moore's Video for "The Bull" Is a Wild Ride That Will Remind You Life is About the Ups AND the Downs
Kip Moore doesn't usually record songs he didn't write. But once you hear "The Bull," you'll immediately understand why he chose to perform this outside song.
Jimmy Kimmel recently spoke out against white supremacy during a late night monologue and upset a lot of people. Our publishing of said monologue created the same effect. Instead of going at his detractors with bared teeth, Kimmel simply read their thoughts out loud on air while blurring out their names, noting where they were right, and where they erred. If there's one thing that can begin to heal our differences it's a rational, calm, conversation.
