Finding boots in small sizes can be a challenge but it can be done. Now that boot weather is here it’s time to start thinking about a new pair (or two). Zappos and Nordstrom are two of my favorite places to search for small size shoes. Both sites have wonderful search tools to narrow your search between shoe size, type, boot shaft height, heel height, and more. I always hear people say that petites shouldn’t wear ankle boots or boots with a tall shaft height. Like most “rules”, I break this one too because I love all boots. I wear what I feel good in and I try to keep things monochrome and here’s how you can too.
Here are a couple examples from petite celebrities who are also breaking the “rules”:
Kourtney Kardashian (5’0) on the left was spotted wearing knee high riding boots, in the center Kourtney was spotted wearing over-the-knee boots, and on the right, she was spotted wearing ankle boots. She makes all these looks work so well by keeping her leggings and tights in the same color family as her boots. This way her outfit isn’t broken up and it makes her look taller.
Rachel Bilson (5’2) – on the left was spotted wearing booties with a dress on the “red” carpet, in the middle she was spotted wearing flat ankle lace-up booties, and on the far right she was spotted wearing a pair of cut-out ankle boots. The two nude ankle bootie looks work because of their color and the black lace-up booties work well because they are paired with black leggings.
