If You Have Thick Calves-
Look for: Elastic gussets, stretchy leather or fabric, buckles, or laces for extra give. Also, an angled cuff (not one that cuts straight across) creates a flattering curve on the leg.

Avoid: Pull-on styles that are hard to get into, boots that end at the widest part of the calf muscle, and wraparound straps that accentuate any fullness.

Try wearing them: With tights or leggings in a matching color to create a long, lean line.

To buy: Ciao Bella leather boots, $159, shoes.com. Forever 21 jeans.
