I'm 5.5 and have very short fat legs. Any ideas how to dress them? Inside leg is 29 inches, large calves, large thighs but scrawny ankles and knobbley knees. I'm a 12 on top, almost a 10 on the bottom half.
I can never find boots that fit nicely, if I have a wide fit they tend to sag a little around ankles. Dresses tend to be too long, skinny jeans and boots a definite no.
I tend to live in boot cut jeans and plain tops or ahem...fleeces
I am one of the Fat Face / White Stuff shoppers but would love to branch out a little.
Try Duo boots, calf fit, and go for skinny jeans and boots. YOU CAN WEAR THEM!
As long as the fit is right it will elongate your body. As a size 10/12 you prob hate your calves more than you should.
Choose a heeled boot. Also try dress/skirt leg lengths that come just below the knee and fitted, think dita von teese, a very flattering cut plus it'll half the size of your calves. When wearing a dress choose shoes without an ankle strap, this draws attention to the leg.
