Strutting through a room rocking a pair of Fendi pumps and a killer ensemble is like is like being Paris Hilton in 2006: AWESOME. Pairing your outfit with the perfect heels can take your look from average to jaw dropping. Some women get confused about which heel height is appropriate, showing up to a gala in flats or Target in sky high platforms. There are just some things that are universally ratchet.
To the misguided female, or the uncertain countess: follow this blog and ye shall be rewarded with proper attention from the right guy, be it a Daddy or a regular dude. Be mindful that the short girls can get away with an extra inch, but for the lanky ladies, an extra inch can intimidate gentleman callers.
As far as I’m concerned, flats, flip-flops, and sneakers are all in the same category. Basic styles like these elicit an air of nonchalance, and show that you’re not trying to impress anyone. If you’re going to a baseball game or a dive bar, a sandal or tennie is perfectly appropriate. A flat shoe will make make you seem more approachable, but shorties be warned: you will look short. When you know you’re going to be walking all day like at a festival, go for this shoe since they can withstand the most mileage.
The great thing about wedges is they appear girly and elegant, while still being semi-casual. A low wedge can work for a sporting event or bar scenario, but with an added sexy element. Some wedges are as comfortable as sneakers, so finding the perfect pair for your footies is fundamental. However, paired with something more upscale, these chunky shoes will look out of place.
For business casual, these are perf. Most professional ladies work amongst men, who don’t want to be looked down on, literally or figuratively. Wearing these on a date or to a semi-formal occasion can be seen as lazy. Like, why didn’t you just go for a wedge if you want to be comfortable? Despite their playful name, this style is not likely to make him purr.
When in doubt of the proper shoe to rock, utilize a smaller spiky or chunky heel. Maybe this won’t be your go-to shoe for a pool hall, but it will suffice nonetheless. From business to pleasure, a mid-height heel will make your calves look great without adding a stripperish vibe. For shorter girls, hitting the 4 inch mark is barely a boost, but for the taller ladies it can turn you into a giant. The average American man is only about 5 foot 9, so take that into consideration when selecting your shoe.
The super pump is not for everyone. Taller than average girls don’t need it, but it can be an essential upgrade for a club environment. Beware: we’ve all seen the girl who can barely walk in her stilettos. Do not be this girl. You will suffer embarrassment and likely a sprained ankle. Check out this informative video for some essential tips for walking in 6 inch pumps. The extra height will give your confidence a boost, but don’t overuse them. These shoes should be worn for formal and going out occasions only. A guy might see your stripper shoes and think: the higher the heel, the lower her standards.
I’m sure you’ve got 99 problems, but choosing your shoes should not be one. Hopefully your kicks will accentuate the rest of your outfit, which I am not going to help you pick out. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
