Nude or sparkling heels – shoes, pumps or sandals, are the perfect accessory at party time. Not only do they flatter a whole lot more than anything in a darker hue –but their leg lengthening qualities, whether they’re gold, glitter, nude or jewel encrusted make them the only pair you’ll need this season. All the more reason to invest in something special.
Unlike buying clothing online – which we’ve become much more adept at, heels are even easier, because the size doesn’t change in the way clothing does from designer to designer. So always pick your true size and you should just be able to slip on your new party shoes and be out of the door.
Anything nearer your skin tone will be the most flattering, so if leg lengthening is what you’re looking for go for gold or nude and avoid anything with a contrasting ankle strap.
Don’t hold back if you’re thinking of investing. It’ll be hard to find the perfect party heels come December as many will have sold out. They always do. And if you want to really stand out in the crowd choose a pair of designer shoes such as Valentino’s instantly recognisable Rockstud Sandals or SJP Sarah Jessica Parker’s idiosyncratic range for Net-a-Porter. Why not? After all, it’s Christmas……
