What Heels Are in Style?
As a timeless fashion trend, high heels are sexy and sophisticated and can be just what you need to elevate your outfit and put a pep back into your step! A good pair of heels never goes out of fashion, no matter what style you choose to wear.
Turn heads with some sky-high stilettos made for special events and standing out in a crowd. Black strappy heels can add that touch of class to an elegant evening dress, while a pair of cute mules can glam up a blouse and skirt outfit. Add some height with platform heels, or take it down a notch with lower heels for more laidback vibes. Shake up your winter outfits with some knee-high or ankle boots teamed with boho skirts and slouchy knit cardigans.
Are Women’s Heels Comfortable?
While many women are prepared to suffer for their style, the truth is you shouldn’t need to! The right pair of heels for you will be comfortable to walk in and won’t hurt your feet after hours of wear. The trick is to find the perfect fit for your foot. Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your next pair of high heels:
- Choose heels with a gradual incline
- Go for an arch that’s aligned with the shape of your foot
- Wear wedges, block heel sandals or platform heels if you need more stability
- Remeasure your feet occasionally to ensure you’re always wearing the right size
What is the Best Heel Height for You?
Heels come in all different shapes and heel heights. If you’re used to wearing flats, slides and sandals, it can feel strange trying to walk in heels. The best heels for you are low heels, mid heels or wedges, which will give your foot more support and balance. When you feel like you’ve conquered your swagger, upgrade to a higher, thinner heel if you like!
What Type of Heels Will Suit Your Outfit?
If you want your clothes to do the talking, choose a neutral pair of shoes such as nude heels, white heels, black heels or clear heels. A pair of black patent pumps can elevate a mini dress for a special occasion without overshadowing it. Heels pair well with maxi dresses as they give you the extra height you need to keep your dress up off the floor, while a shorter midi dress will show off your shoes in style.
Suede and leather heels are classics that go with everything. For a relaxed weekend look, pair low heel mules with cute blouses and shorts, or style them with a white shirt, pants and a blazer for a business-casual vibe. A pair of high heel boots will dress up your favourite jeans and t-shirts, while some vibrant platform shoes, a crop top and a fun skirt will get you into a party mood!
How Do You Accessorise Your Heels?
Sometimes, the occasion calls for a little something extra. Accessories and heels work together to create showstopping outfits that steal the spotlight at any event. Consider pairing your heels with our latest must-have accessories:
