How to Choose the Right Style Formal shoes and boots are often elevated to some extent, and when choosing a pair of heels, it may be quite a tricky task to find the style that would meet your comfort level. So, we offer you this guide to get you through the most popular heel types. A pair of block-heeled shoes give great support and distribute weight more evenly compared to classic stilettos. They can vary from a low square heel to a practical cylindrical heel. Both options are quite comfortable and easy to walk in. That’s why block-heeled shoes are suitable not only for formal events but for everyday wear as well. Kitten-heel footwear looks vintage and classy. They stream sophistication and elegance while staying quite comfortable with their 3-5 cm height. A stiletto heel is a timeless classic. With their thin, tapering heel, stiletto shoes are the most popular style for black-tie affairs. They range from modest 3 cm to a sky-scraping 20 cm. Higher stilettos usually have an extra platform on the front, making them slightly comfier. Tapered-heel shoes have cone-shaped heels that can be slightly curved to give boots a bit quirky look. They provide great support and are also suitable for casual wear. Once you’ve chosen the style, you should consider some details that may flatter your legs. For instance, if you have large ankles, avoid wearing shoes with an ankle strap as they will make your ankles appear larger. Instead, opt for a slingback or pump footwear. If you want to create an illusion of longer and leaner legs, select pointy-toe shoes or nude heels. Keep in mind that T-strap shoes can make your legs look shorter. Lastly, remember that slim heels and stilettos work best for slender women, while platforms or thicker heels look flattering on those with a heavier build.
