Q. Thanks for your site, I find it really helpful! I’d like to invest in a good pair of boots for fall and winter. Unfortunately I have really skinny calves so that most boots that are supposed to fit snugly end up looking like galoshes. Other than wearing two pairs of socks to bulk up my legs, do you recommend any boot styles for girls with skinny legs?
A. First, measure your calf at its widest part and take note of its circumference – this will help narrow down your search to boots that are likely to fit your slim calves. Search sites like zappos.com, shoes.com and piperlime.com which handily list the circumference of the boots and often let you search for narrow calves. Generally, stretch styles seem to fit slim calves best. Alternatively, look for details like buckles and ties which allow you to adjust the width of the boot for a customized fit.
Other than wearing two pairs of socks, try textured tights and tucked in jeans to help fill up the gaps in your boots.
