Shoes which help or hinder…
By creating the illusion of an unbroken line right to the tips of your toes, you will add visual centimetres to your leg length. You can do this by;
- Avoiding ankle straps, which appear to cut your lower legs in half.
- Choosing light coloured shoes where possible. Shoes which are of a similar tone to your legs appear to lengthen the calf.
- Try to find shoes which are not totally flat – even a centimetre or two of heel will help.
- In colder weather, the best visual trick is a nicely heeled boot under pants or a longer skirt. Keep them in the same tone to enhance the illusion of legs which go on forever…
