If you have heavy calves then you definitely need to give a little more attention to the way you dress up as dressing up according to one’s body type is so crucial to make a style statement. Let’s find out how you can effortlessly do that.
Pick the right length
Avoid a clingy line that tapers and stops either before or at mid-calf in your dresses and skirts. Choose a hemline that finishes on the thinnest part of your leg line like below knee or ankle length that covers your ankle.
Go for maxi dresses
They are full length, long-flowy dresses that conceal the problem of bigger calves altogether. You can go for darker shades of dresses and pair them up with nude pumps for a nice look.
Flats may be too comfortable and your go-to footwear of every season but they are just not friends with big calves. Flat shoes emphasize big calves and ankles and make you look short and bulky.
A thicker stacked heel like of wedges or platforms can work great in your favour. The heels balance out the calves and make them look longer and narrower. Also try to steer clear of ankle straps which have shortening effects and skinny stilettoes which create too much contrast and exaggerate huge calves.
Switch to long pants
Go for straight leg, bootcut or wide legged jeans or pants to hide the issue of bigger calves. You can also go for pant-suits which is a great look to sport this season. Stay away from cropped pants and capris as they draw the eye to the widest part of your calves and ankles and make your legs look stubby.
Wear a long-line cover-up
You can get so many fancy cover ups in different fabrics which not only look chic but also manage to conceal the bulkiness of your calves too. If you will be wearing something short on your legs then go for long shrugs or fancy cover-ups in sheer, net or flowy fabrics.
Direct attention to your upper body
You can play up your shoulders and can also have fun with accessories like statement necklaces, fancy necklines or colourful scarves to direct attention away from your lower body.
Go for a monochromatic look
A monochromatic look in darker hues will give a lengthening effect to the body and elongates the leg line which makes the leg area look slimmer in appearance.
