One of the hottest pre-fall trends among celebs right now are ankle boots in any color, fashion or form. Whether dressed up with a short sparkly cocktail dress or worn casual with shorts and a tee, these have become a staple among designer fashion mavens. The only rule? Wear them with something short…the point is to show them off! However, self-conscious ladies beware…ankle boots can make even the most toned and trim legs look short and stumpy.
