Nude Heels – How to Make your Legs Look Longer

Nude shoes make your legs look longer, provided you wear them correctly, and the best nude shoes have that ‘don’t make me walk too far’ sexy modern glam appeal that we’re all after.

At this time of year there are hundreds of nude shoes on offer, many of them not offering anything than a great colour for spring.  What you’re looking for is a high enough heel, a modern shape and that je ne sais quoi that so many of them don’t have.

The wrong shaped toe, a heavy heel (unless you really want to go for that look) or a colour that is slightly off and the look doesn’t work.  So choose carefully.

Best worn with bare legs, preferably with only a hint of colour, these shoes will work with everything particularly little above the knee or slim fitted midi dresses and will make your legs look longer than they are.  This is the glamorous no shoe shoe, and every girl should have several pairs in her wardrobe, from pale sparkle shoes to beige suede and patent.  I would have still had the latter had the puppy not destroyed mine last year – another excuse for shopping I suppose……….
