Although sometimes a tall boot can turn your lengthy gams into troll nubs, the right height and the perfect shape can really make all of the difference. These Jeffrey Campbell beauties, when worn as intended, hit me directly below my kneecap. As excited as I was to receive them in the mail, the choking clothesline effect to my knees was extremely unattractive. So in the words of one fabulously dressed man who actually owns up to his personal use of men’s spanx, make it work. The Hy Range Boot isn’t a lover of the fold-over, so I scrunched. By giving my legs just a little more space between the bottom of my skirt and the top of the boot, I don’t look like a boxy square. It also gave these gorgeous ombre tights a little more room to shine. Cheers to yummy fall items. So, if you’re down for a hunt and a make-it-work moment, find those perfect tall boots you’ve been dreaming about, capable of accentuating your every step. But, remember – if the hunt goes sour and your boots shrink your height to that of a woodsy hairy man, ankle boots are popular for a reason, right?
