How To Pick The Right Pair Of Heels

Heels can look great but if paired with the wrong outfit, it won’t matter how fabulous the shoes are – it just won’t work. Sometimes even the best of us fall prey to matching the wrong pair of heels with the wrong outfit. If you need a refresher course or are new to the whole idea, it helps to learn some helpful information and guidelines as to what pairs of heels you should buy and what items of clothing they go with.

Before going out and buying all the cute pairs of heels you see, it helps to evaluate your wardrobe, note what your favorite outfits are and then purchase your heels accordingly. There is more than one kind of heel out there and not all of them look good with just any outfit. The most common types of heels out there include: stilettos, low heels, high heels, platforms, and wedges.

The stiletto screams sexy and just about every supermodel has a pair, which in turn, inspires women in the general public to get their own as well. The challenge with stilettos is that, well, they’re stilettos. Many of them are super high in height and the taller you are in heels, the more awkward it can be to walk in them – this is especially true for women who are not naturally tall. If you’re inexperienced or new to heels, do not invest in a pair of stilettos.

However, if you’re a pro in heels, then you can wear these shoes with a sexy cocktail dress or even with a stylish pair of form-fitting jeans. This will depend on the style and color of your heels. Because stilettos are synonymous with style, make sure that the outfit you plan on wearing makes a statement on its own so that the stilettos accentuate the overall look.

Low heels are perfect for women who want a little height but not too much. This type of heel offers a happy medium. Taller women tend to gravitate towards low heels since it doesn’t emphasize their tall stature and can be comfortably worn with a sun dress, snug pair of jeans and a tank top or nice blouse, and even with capris or shorts. In general you can’t go wrong with low heels, which helps when it comes to mixing and matching in your wardrobe. On the flip side, high heels provide those extra 2-3 inches that most women crave.

However, high heels are not the same as stilettos, since high heels have a wider base of the shoe than stilettos do. High heels provide enough support to be worn comfortably throughout your day and goes well with just about any outfit. But the key here is to choose the right style and color. You can choose from traditional, close-toed high heels, or strappy ones. When all else fails, make sure to have at least one pair of solid black, close-toed high heels.

Platform heels have a funky design and offer a lot of support for your feet. Wear your platforms with your favorite pair of jeans, skirt, dress, or even a gown (just make sure the style fits). There are a variety of platforms out there, choose the one that you can walk well in and won’t mess up your ankle in the event that you fall. Wedges work for providing height and making your legs appear longer. For this reason, go with a pair of wedges if you plan on wearing a skirt, dress, or even a miniskirt. Wedges support the entire heel and can even be worn in the office.
