I’ve had a love hate relationship with flat booties. I love the way they look, the ease of wearing them, and the edginess they bring to outfits, but my short legs are having a tough time pulling them off. If you think about it, all booties (but, especially flat ones) cut off your legs and for those that are less fortunate in the leg department, this can be really unflattering. I ordered a pair of flat tan Sam Edelman booties a while back and just could not pull them off. The contrast between tan and black or blue jeans DID NOT work for me. I wasn’t ready to give up on flat booties quite yet, so I recently ordered the Vince Camuto Tricera boot in black. I had a feeling the black booties paired with black skinny jeans or leggings would help elongate my legs (anything monochromatic will do the trick). Going all black has definitely helped, but I’ve also found that tucking in your shirts, so you show more leg, works wonders too. I absolutely love the the look of the Tricera booties, so I’m so glad I kept them and found a way to make them work… but for now, they’ll only be worn with black #shortgirlproblems.

If you have any tips on how to wear flat booties, please do share!
