When dressing in beautiful clothes and shoes it’s important to know what will work best on your body type. It can be great fun to shop for shiny, eye-catching dresses and high heels in the UK. However, if your shoes make you appear heavier or shorter than you desire, they can easily end up at the back of your wardrobe, never to be worn again.
This is especially true when shopping online. Because you generally don’t try on the shoes before buying, it’s easy to be tempted by styles that may not work for your particular physique.
Experienced shoppers tend to have an understanding of which shoe heights, styles and colours look best on them. If you are just starting out or are still unsure about your UK high heel styles, there are several guidelines you can follow to ensure you’ll look great in whatever you buy.
Petite fashionistas generally want to look taller. They’ll tend to do best in higher heels, as long as they are not overly high, which can lead to a wobbly or imbalanced appearance.
People with thick calves should shy away from shoes with ankle straps, and high heels that are either too thick or too thin. Finding medium high heels will be the best bet, and wedge or platform heels can also balance thicker calves.
Those with large feet will want to aim for shoes with round or square toes, as this will help shorten the foot. Pointed-toe styles will only serve to lengthen the foot and make it look even larger.
Taller people already have the height desired by many high heel enthusiasts in the UK, but that doesn’t mean they should avoid high heels.
Here at BananaShoes, we believe that high heels are for everyone, which is why we enjoying providing UK high heels in every shape and size.
