Hello! I’m about 5’2 and I’d like to get a pair of boots; I’ve never owned a pair. I went to DSW and saw that they’re pretty expensive. I tried a few on, but I’m not sure if I look stupid in them. They came to about right under my knee. Is that ok? Do any of you shorter bees wear boots? (The kind you wear over jeans)
What do you guys recommend? As you can tell, this is my first pair and it’s already 2011 – I’m pretty much fashion-challenged. Help!
Thanks in advance!

I’m 5’4″ and have two pairs of knee length boots. Wearing them over skinny jeans with a short dress or long top works best for me…otherwise, I pair them with a dress and fun tights.

pair them with leggings! I prefer boots that are more solid (for lack of a better word) i like them to stand up on their own instead of falling over (when i dont have them on)…does that make sense?

I’m 5’1 and I wear boots religiously in the winter. I usually go for right-under-the-knee boots and ankle boots. I tried thigh high boots, but they made me look like I didn’t have legs lol. I always get the Style & Co. boots from Macy’s – they usually run about $50. Here’s a picture of me in my boots..excuse the weird pose lol..
I think if you make it look like one long line from your jeans to your boots, it will look good. For example, you wouldn’t wear a long tunic top and capri pants – it would make your body look unproportioned. Same thing with boots. I prefer to wear my boots with dark jeans because they make me look slimmer and it doesn’t look choppy.

I’m also 5’4 and wear anything from ankle boots to knee high boots, though my least favorite are the shorter boots because I have big calves and they look kinda funny. Here is a pic of my knee highs with jeans tucked in – I like it! (Okay and I actually posted these outfits in previous thread, I didn’t go run and put the boots on just for this haha) And then the boots are a tad shorter in the next one. I like wearing leggings with boots too, otherwise the jeans need to be really skinny or it looks funny and bunched up.

I’m 4’11” so I have to search to find ones that are “short” enough to only reach my knees. But when I find a pair and wear them I get loads of compliments, so I think it’s safe to say you’ll look great in that style.

Hey there.. I’m 4’11” and I love my boots! I’m actually wearing an ankle high pair from DSW right now.
I tend to go with ones that go right below my knee and wear them over skinny jeans/leggings. It sounds like the ones you were trying on were perfect!!

I am a little person, too, and I have boots on right now! They are brown and come up until about 3 inches under my knees. I got them at the Clarks outlet in PA for $30. Best $30 ever spent! Did you try Zappos?
