Different Ways to Wear Calf-Length Boots


There's just something about a fierce pair of boots that instantly takes your fashion ensemble from zero to 60 in no time. Edgier than pumps, boots may cover more of your leg, but they also command more attention as well. A calf-length boot is a fabulous way to get the height of a knee-length style without the full commitment. With the many ways that you can wear calf-length boots, the possibilities are endless. Check out the best styling choices for a fashion-forward look.

With Skinny Jeans

Arguably the hottest denim style in fashion also happens to look pretty fetching with a pair of calf-length boots. Pairing skinny jeans with calf-length boots is equally beneficial for both fashion items. The skinny jeans get a little dose of character by the additional drama on the bottom, while the boots have a sleek silhouette as a backdrop. Whether you opt for slouch, stretch or zipped styles, your calf-length boots always look fashion-forward when they are complimented by a well-fitting pair of skinny jeans.

With Leggings

Combine the effect of tights, with a little more stability, and you have leggings, which also happen to look hot with calf-length boots. With a legging/boot combo, it's all about a streamlined appearance. To achieve this, the best thing to do is opt for a monochromatic look on the lower half of your body by wearing leggings and boots in the same shade. This creates the illusion of longer, leaner legs, always a welcome benefit to any figure.

With Dresses

It's often quite predictable to rock a pair of pumps when wearing a dress. However, if you want to instantly shake things up, swap out the pumps for a pair of fabulous calf-length boots. Before you run to your closet and try to wear your calf-length boots with all of your dresses, listen up. Calf-length boots should be seen, so avoid wearing maxi dresses or those that fall past your calf. Ideally, when you are wearing a boot there should be enough skin showing between the boot and your leg so that things don't look so cluttered. In following this rule, it's best to opt for dresses that have higher hemlines.

With Skirts

The guidelines of wearing a skirt with calf-length boots are basically the same as a dress. You want skirts with higher hemlines so that there is an appropriate amount of skin seen between your skirt and your calf-length boots. If you are wearing a skirt with volume, then your calf-length boot should be free from it to avoid a cluttered and bulky appearance. The opposite is also true; if your skirt lacks volume or drama, make up for it with a calf-length boot in a slouch style.
