High heels are an easy and a great way to look five kilograms slimmer just by wearing them. But you have to be careful with your choice. Lets see how to do it.
A good pair of high heels can add some extra height to your overall appereance, make your legs look longer and slimmer and shape up your postute and back side. If you chose the wrong pair of heels though you may actually achieve the opposite result.
For example, if you want to look slimmer and a few kilograms less, then you should stay away from chunky heels, kitten heels and slouch boots.
There are boots with thin foam inserts in their shafts that make them stay straight and tall, forming your calves quite nicely. Such boots will have a slimming effect, especially when black or another dark color.
If you wear trousers, a pair of high heeled ankle booties will work great. They will shape up your foot and paired with the trousers will make your lowerpart of the body look tall and slim.
High boots would work better with dresses, especially dresses that are more fitted on top and are flaring at the lower end. Be aware though as boots and a dress is an easy way to make you look shorter if you chose the wrong boots.
If you wear dresses to just below your knee, ankle boots are going to make your legs look shorter. To wear ankle boots with dresses, rather wear shorter lengths and make use of same colour tights and boots for an even more elongated look.
Of course you can’t be wearing boots all year long. A pair of slimming classic pumps with thin heels can do wonders too. Nude colored platform heels are also a nice option. But don’t go for too high of a platform as it can make your feet look bulky.
Wedges, especially in a neutral color, can also elongate your legs. Avoid heels with thick straps and heels with lots of details and accessories on them. These just add “weight” to the look and you are actually going for the opposite.
Finally, experiment. Try out various combinations and see what works best for you. Keep in mind that fashion is not an exact science so what works for one is not guaranteed to work for another. Take photos of yourself trying the outfits off. This will give you a better perspective on how you look than the mirror as you can see a different angle.
