There’s no question that adding a pair of nude or sparkle heels to whatever you’re wearing will make your legs look longer. You only have to look at some of the chunky black shoes used to style so many great outfits online to see that they don’t do it any favours, neither the clothes nor the person wearing them. Nude and pale sparkle shoes have leg lengthening qualities other shoes just don’t have.
As nude is such a good colour for this season you’ll find a wide range of styles, from platforms to pointed toes, sky high (almost un-wearable) sandals, t-bars - another trend along with ultra high platforms, caged sandals and stilettos. Being less than tall I always look for a shoe with a high heel and a platform and even the highest platforms can give a buzz to almost anything.
This is a mixture of designers from Jimmy Choo to Kurt Geiger, Vince Camuto and Dune. Which ever you choose make sure you can walk in them, just taking a stroll in the showroom isn’t really enough. And I don’t believe you should suffer for your shoes. So that’s the joy of online as you can get them sent home and walk a little in them provided you keep it on carpet.
A glamorous nude shoe will work with anything, for after dark, weddings or drinks. Unlike black, which can unless you’re very careful shorten your leg, nude shoes do the opposite, and who doesn’t want their legs to look longer?
