It’s pretty fair to say that no outfit is perfect unless you get the shoes right. Whether you’re going to work, have a date or you’re just spending the day shopping, you need to match your shoes to your outfit and this will always include choosing the right heel height. How do you match your heel to your outfit? Take a look at these tips.
How to know which height is best
You will naturally feel more comfortable with a certain heel height, depending on whether you have a high or a low arch and it’s best to go with this height wherever possible. However, some outfits demand a different heel height. If you are wearing pants then your main consideration is making sure your heels are high enough to keep the pant legs off the floor. Other than that you can go as high or low as you like. However, when wearing a short skirt or shorts it is better to choose a lower heel. Strappy sandals go with just about everything, pair platforms or mules with trousers or throw on a pair of wedges with your dress for an effortless summer look.
What to do when you can’t try them on
Choosing the right pair is much more difficult when you buy shoes online, retailers like Tesco have hundreds of options and you can’t try them on with your outfit first. Take into consideration the length of your skirt/dress/trousers and the style of your outfit. If you get really stuck with choosing the right height then the classic 3-inch heel is the best way to go.
