If you’ve noticed one thing that many of the new season’s sandals have in common, it’ll probably be the ankle strap, along with, in many cases a block heel (as opposed to a stiletto).
This may fill you with panic as ankle straps are known to not suit everybody and flatter best those who are tall and/or with a slim ankle.
The way to get around this and have this season’s hottest heel is to invest in a pair that is almost skin tone. In that way you don’t risk shortening your legs – as a black or dark tone ankle strap will almost certainly do. A pair of nude, light tan or skin tone ankle strap sandals will work for just about any occasion, dressed up or dressed down, and be right on trend.
Make sure that the ankle strap itself isn’t too wide as this can again shorten your legs, and look for details, if you want them, such as bows and ruffles. Personally I prefer mine plain without more add-ons as these shoes speak for themselves, they work for weddings and weekends equally, depending on the heel.
