I have re­ally big calves and I want to in­vest in styles and out­fits that draw at­ten­tion away from this part of my legs, or make them ap­pear smaller than they are. Do you have any sug­ges­tions?

Big calves should not deter you from in­vest­ing in dif­fer­ent styles and out­fits. You sim­ply need to know a few rules when shop­ping for clothes. Stick to mono­chrome and darker colours on your bot­tom half and add colour, tex­ture, bling, vol­ume or a print to the top half of your body, to at­tract the eye up­wards. Make sure hem­lines reach the nar­row­est part of your leg – ei­ther just be­low your knee or at your an­kle, not mid-calf. Opt for boot­leg or straight-cut pants/ jeans, avoid­ing a nar­row leg. With shoes, steer clear of su­perfine heels and stick to heav­ier styles like a wedge or a thicker heel.
