Heels never fail to make a statement. They’ve long been a women’s fashion staple, and for a good reason. Not only do they elongate your legs, but they also reset your posture and announce your presence in a quiet room. Here are some cool ways to wear them.
The Low Heel
For days when you’ll be on the move, low heels can elevate your look from off-duty to polished. In winter, throw on an oversized trench coat and your favourite pair of trousers. Finish the outfit with your most relaxed pair of heels. They’re comfy enough to run around in all day but chic enough to take your look to the next level. Even a low heel can elevate your look when done right. Practical and still up there in the women’s fashion stakes.
If you want to look sharp, try an elevated loafer. They’re the perfect balance of elegant and understated. Throw them on with a well-worn pair of jeans for a casual look or dress them up if you need to look professional. Either way, you’ll barely notice them on your feet.
The Medium Heel
If low heels are training wheels, these babies are intermediate level. Crank them out when you want to turn heads but still retain your sense of je ne sais quoi. In the warmer weather, throw on a pair of open toe mules with a summery dress. This glamorous combination will make you feel unstoppable.
Boots with a moderate heel are a woman’s fashion must have. They keep your feet cosy in winter and are sturdy enough that you could probably run in them. You won’t even have to stash them away come summer, they’re versatile enough to be worn year round. Match them with low hemlines for a classic, sultry look.
The High Heel
There’s nothing quite as captivating as an old school pair of high heeled pumps. Wearing them takes commitment, but that’s part of the allure. Match them with another high key piece or two – a faux fur coat or your favourite statement jewellery. Then leave something about your outfit undone. You might choose a t-shirt, or second day hair. After all, there’s nothing more boring than perfection.
Pair your higher heels with loose clothing for a more refined look. You can get away with excess in one area by showing restraint in another. Tailored pants with a high waist and a button up shirt will give your outfit structure, allowing you to be more daring in the footwear department.
