Dare to wear high heels!
Fashion experts may say that recent years have belonged to flats – but we know that heels will never go out of fashion! Every woman should have a few pairs in her wardrobe. There's nothing that pulls an outfit together like a sleek and stylish pair, whether you opt for wedges, stilettos, or spikes. It's possible to find a pair to suit absolutely every occasion you could imagine – and yes, you can walk in them! When you buy a new pair, it's worth wearing them around the house for a couple of hours. This will help get your feet used to them, so when you venture outside, you'll stay upright. Keep an eye on the heel itself, too. Rubber tips will need to be replaced from time to time, otherwise, you will struggle to walk!
High heels you can walk in
Many women feel uncomfortable putting on a pair of high heels. If you're a member of this group, don't worry: You're not alone! The trick is finding the right style to get started on your heel journey. As a general rule, the skinnier the heel, the harder you'll find it. For that reason, if you're nervous, try wedges. These aren't just for summer: You can find wedge boots and formal shoes, as well as classic sandals. Chunky heels are also a good choice – just stay away from stilettos until you've got a bit more experience. Another top tip is picking up gel insoles. These slip inside your shoes, totally invisible from the outside, and give you a bit of extra cushioning to keep you comfortable.
Styling high heels to look cool
You'll find high heels that work wherever you're going. The taller the heel, the more dramatic the statement; choose kitten heels if you want to keep things sweet and simple, or go for a towering pair to show off your legs! Remember that if you've chosen very high heels, don't go for a micro mini. This look is tough to pull off, especially if you want your look to stay classy. Instead, choose a skirt that sits just a couple of inches above the knee. If you're wearing trousers, make sure the hem falls at the right point. It should just graze the top of the shoes in the front, without touching the ground. If it's too short, you can end up with the dreaded "ankle swingers" look!
