Shopping for boots should be a fashionista’s favorite fall activity. So why is it such a nightmare? Well, we all come in different sizes: short, tall, thin, curvy and countless combinations in between. While there’s no “one size fits all” for boots, there are several silhouettes that bring out the best of your shape; you just need to know where to look.

Short Legs

Finding the right boots for short legs is tricky business: Knee-high lengths can engulf the leg, while ankle boots can create a stocky effect. Selecting a mid-shaft boot is the way to go. Kensie’s Chase High-Heel Boots ($129 at Lord & Taylor) is ideal because the substantial blocked heel adds height.

Long Legs

Dames with legs for days can pull off both printed boots and over-the-knee options. Get the best of both worlds in Guess’ Zonian Over the Knee Boots ($159 at Macy’s), which are perfect for layering over leggings, skinny jeans or under a thigh-grazing dress.

Thick Legs

I know what you’re thinking before you even say it: “Won’t an ankle boot make my leg look short and stumpy?” Not if you work it right. A low-cut boot that exposes the ankle highlights one of the slimmest parts of the body and creates shape. Use the Bordeaux Double Buckle Western Bootie ($49.99 at Avenue) for good instead of evil, and wear it with insta-thinning black tights or skinny jeans.

Wide Calves

In the past, riding boots were something that women with wide calves only dreamed of. Thanks to the Josette Widestrap Boots ($159.20 at Naturalizer), nailing the equestrian look is well within reach for everyone!

Thin Calves

Catwoman and various superheroes have all rocked a pull-on boot, and for good reason: There’s simply nothing sexier. Those with thin calves are in luck. The skin-hugging design of the Inga Tall Leather Boots ($139.99 at Nine West) works best on you and is a stellar opportunity to show off your slim limbs.

Weak Ankles

Some of us just aren’t cut out for wearing high-heeled boots all day; after all, it’s a serious workout for the ankles. Easy Spirit has a selection of booties that pack major support. For example, the Almrose Wedge Booties ($139 at Easy Spirit) are both on-trend and practical.

Narrow Feet

Most of us love a roomy shoe—especially during the winter, when layering socks is a factor—but slim-footed femmes need the opposite. Enter SoftWalk, which makes comfortable, stylish shoes for special feet. The SoftWalk Dakota ($134.95 at Shoebuy.com) is nothing short of a slam dunk.

Wide Feet

Is there anything worse than falling in love with a boot only to find that you can’t get it all the way on your foot? Instead, look for boots with stretch openings or zippers, like this ingenious double-zippered A2 Boot by Aerosoles ($69.99 at Kohl’s).
