Being a member of the "shoe obsessed" club is never a bad thing, but what is bad is wearing shoes that don't accentuate your gorgeous legs whenever possible. Sure, you don't have to have supermodel legs to look sexy in your favorite pair of Blahniks or Louboutins, but you always want to wear the best style for your legs. There are really simple ways that shoes can help you slim and add length to your sexy stems.
Not only are they one of the hottest shoes of the season, but shoes in neutral tones also slim and lengthen your legs in a flash. While all styles in a nude/neutral shade expertly slim the leg, those in a pump style work wonders above the rest. A pump is a classic shoe style that is always current and a welcome addition to your shoe arsenal, and when you combine it with a nude color, the results are flawless. To pull off the neutral shoe look, make sure you pick a shade that is as close to your natural complexion as possible. This will trick the eye and give the illusion of a longer and slimmer leg because the eye won't be able to separate your leg and the shoe as easily. Nudes are also a fashionable alternative to the equally slimming monochromatic shoe and tight combination.
They may not be an ideal everyday shoe, and your feet might hate you later, but a pointed toe shoe slims your legs like you wouldn't believe. You know how awesome your legs look when you point your toe? Well, that's exactly the effect that pointed toe shoes have. A pointed toe gives you extra inches at the toe, which gives the legs a more streamlined and sleek appearance. Round toe shoes are quite popular right now, but what they often do is cut you foot in half and give your legs a stumpier appearance. Pointed toes achieve the opposite effect. Also with a pointed toe shoe, you can wear more fabric on the bottom, like wide-leg trousers.
As much as you may want to try and avoid wearing high heels regularly, the fashion fact is that they instantly transform your figure ... for the better! A pair of gorgeous high heels improves your posture, streamlines your silhouette and most of all, slims your legs while adding welcome inches. If you are a self-professed high heel addict, then you are no doubt familiar with the wonders they can achieve and have no problem wearing them daily. However, if you're a lovely lady that only wears high heels when they are absolutely necessary, just remember to keep at least four pairs (pump, boot, strappy sandal, slingback) that can go with anything in your closet and slim those legs to perfection.
When you're in a hurry, straps may seem like your worst enemy or at least an inconvenience. However, the extra work required to put them on is worth it because they successfully make your legs look amazing. With straps, the eye is treated to a visual feast as they are drawn to the straps, taking them longer to go up the length of your leg, making them appear longer. Nevertheless, there are a few things you should know about straps. If you have heavier calves and/or ankles, you want to avoid ankle straps and only choose styles with straps on the lower part of your foot. Also, straps that come across the very front of your foot slim your leg without cutting them in half.
