RULE OF THUMB FOR WEARING FLAT SHOES

 

Practically anything you want...well of course there are some rules of thumb to go by...
Lower heel shoes should be worn with a short skirt. Flats tend to make our legs look shorter and if you wear a longer skirt you cut the length of the leg.

Try pairing a colorful flats with a flare skirt or dress. It creates a smooth light feeling of movement. Capris and cropped pants fit nicely with flats. They give a relax feeling of being calm and sincere. Low heels compliment shorter length pants. You can wear flat shoes with long pants.

A tip for wearing low heels with long pants. Make sure when you wear long pants, the pants are straight leg or have just a hint of flare in the leg. This way the flat is exposed and the length of pants won't interfere. Do not wear pants that are too long or cover the heel of shoe. Flat-shoes tend to make legs look squatty.

 

 

BENEFITS OF WEARING MID HEEL OR KITTEN HEEL SHOES

 

The kitten heel or the mid heel is much better for your spine and your posture entirely, and you don’t have to sacrifice fashion for the sake of comfort either. But sacrificing your health and your spine just for the sake of being in vogue doesn’t make much sense at all.

Mid heel shoes are much easier to walk in than high heels – you will feel more comfortable and you will look more comfortable as you walk. With a smaller heel, you can still look and feel feminine and feel much more stable on your feet – and when you take your shoes off at the end of the day you won’t get into bed with sore and aching soles and toes.

It also caters for the need for tall ladies who don’t need to wear the high heel to feel feminine and look elegant.
