Shoes are capable of invoking a euphoria, unlike any other item. You can never have enough high heels. Regardless of how often they see the light of day, knowing they are in the closet, standing at attention is enough.
The high heel shoe brings a lot to the table though. They can define the curvature of a woman’s leg and offers height, confidence, and sass. Wearing them generates a woman’s inner goddess, making her a force to be reckoned with.
There are guidelines for choosing the right shoe that is simply that, guidelines, feel free to improvise. When you fall in love with a particular high heel, the rules can go out the window. Heels have that power. Be a little reckless and go with the pair that makes your heart do flip flops.
Generally speaking though, like all fashion choices, keep the overall shape of your body in mind when shopping.
*Short women look out of proportion when they wear very high heels. Medium height, slender heels are chicer.
*Tall women, can and should, wear heels. They can look stunning, granted they wear the height with pride, and keep their head up and shoulders back.
*Dresses and outfits with a lot of volumes, such as wide pants, thick sweaters, and billowy tunic tops, look best with chunky heels.
*Spiky heels paired with light fabrics and pencil skirts look fantastic.
* Ankle straps accentuate slim legs, but at the same time, they shorten and widen the look. Keep that in mind when choosing the dress to go with the shoe. If your calves are very slender, then there is not a problem. Choose a longer hemline if they are not.
High heels can be worn without hose, but if you must consider the following points;
*Open toed high heels look best if the hosiery is dense, such as; knit or opaque.
*Fishnets also work with open-toed high heels if you cannot see the toe seam.
* Sheer hosiery is nice with closed-toed slingbacks
*Never wear hose with mules.
Expensive shoes are often that way for a reason. The pricier brand names like Manolo Blahnik, Jimmy Choo, Christian Louboutin know how to make a shoe. The geniuses behind those brands create heels that are comfortable to walk in.
*Quality shoes will last longer and wear better.
*Expensive shoes will not leave you hobbling.
*The feeling they offer is worth it.
