Boots: yes, curvy girls can wear boots of all different kinds. The key is how you blend them in with your outfit. For instance, booties or low-boots look great with skirts, dresses and pants. The trick is to wear dark, opaque hose in a color that matches the hem of your garment (skirt/dress/pants). Your whole body will appear longer and leaner with this look. Knee-high boots are also an option to help elongate your legs and your entire body.
