The Art of Heels: How to Choose the Perfect Pair for Your Body Shape

The Art of Heels: How to Choose the Perfect Pair for Your Body Shape

Dear readers, 

As teenagers we experiment with different styles, when it comes to jeans, dresses, skirts and sometimes even partners. Most of us  grow out of the experimental stage by our mid twenties, with a lot of guidance from our peers or lots of bad Instagram pictures we end up taking down eventually. Today, I want to share with you some valuable tips on choosing the perfect heels that will complement your silhouette and exude unmatched elegance, maybe even make your lives a lot easier. Heels are not just footwear; they are a work of art that can instantly transform your look, the way others see you, and most importantly the way you see yourself. Lets begin....
 Hourglass Figure:
If you have well-balanced shoulders and hips with a defined waist, congratulations! You have an enviable hourglass figure. Almost any type of heels will look amazing on you, from open-toed pumps to strappy sandals and heeled boots. Opt for medium-height heels or platforms to accentuate your femininity and harmonious proportions. 

Pear Shape:
For those with wider hips and narrower shoulders, it's essential to choose heels that visually balance your upper and lower body. Open-toe shoes or sandals with a peep-toe can elongate your legs and create a more slender silhouette. Medium width heels or platforms will be a great choice for you.  
Rectangle Figure:
If your shoulders, waist, and hips have similar widths, you have a rectangular figure. To add some curves and create the illusion of a cinched waist, go for heels with ankle straps or open-toe designs. These will add volume to your feet and enhance your femininity.

Inverted Triangle Shape:
If your shoulders are wider than your hips, you have an inverted triangle shape. To visually balance your upper and lower body, opt for heels with closed toes and chunky heels. Boots or booties with heels will add some height and highlight your slim legs.

Oval Shape:
If you have a full figure with little definition between your waist and hips, choose heels with open toes to elongate your legs and add some grace to your overall look. Platforms or medium-height heels will give you a sense of lightness and elegance.

I hope these tips were helpful in finding the perfect heels for your body type. Next time you are deliberating between shoes, remember that it is not just about the look of the shoe, it is about the way the shoe looks on you.
