Let's talk about flat shoes! As much as I love my heels, lets' be realistic. I can not wear them as much anymore..as my mother predicted. So very slowly, I am turning to flats more and more ;)

There are a few important things to know about flat shoes:

  • Pointy shoes make your legs look longer = you look taller
  • More rounded shoes make your legs look shorter = you look shorter
  • The more skin you show around your feet (flat shoe with peep toe) the longer your legs will appear to be
  • The more the colour of the shoe blends with your skin the longer your legs will appear to be
  • You can add so much fun to your outfit with coloured shoes or with some pattern

As you can see I have picked some very different styles, not just plain colours. You can create a very casual outfit or a very professional one wearing flat shoes. Your accessories will help you dress up and finish your outfit: your handbag and jewellery.

Allow yourself to be creative when choosing your shoes, think about different colours than you would normally use. And NO! You don't have to match your shoes and your handbag ;)


Do you own a pair of flats in a gold, silver or pink?

I love these colours as they go with absolutely everything you own. There are so many options available in these colours at the moment.

Have fun playing!
