With small frames, petite women can pull off many flattering styles and this includes boots — yes, I said it — petites can wear all types of boots!
Don’t think that just because you have a petite frame you can’t wear boots. No one needs to compromise when it comes to boots or any type of footwear for that matter! The only thing you have to remember is to make sure you pay attention to the silhouette you create with your outfit. It’s usually every woman’s goal to lengthen their body and create as much height as possible and when you’re petite, this becomes something you have to pay attention to everyday. When wearing boots, just make sure you pay attention to what you’re wearing with them. Pair them with slim fitting jeans or leggings that match the same color family of your boots.
In my opinion, petites can wear boots over the knee as much as they want they just have to follow one simple rule — keep the boots in the same color family as your pants. For example, if you’re wearing over the knee black boots wear them over black leggings or dark wash denim. This will visually extend the length of your legs so the boots don’t cut them off.
