You just have to give in-flats are the shoe right here, right now. Some women only wear flats while others wouldn’t dare be caught with them on. It has no effect on how tall you are because the flat shoe looks great for people of all heights. Actually, if you are petite, flat shoes can make you look taller if you’re dressed monochromatically—all in the same color from head to toe, stockings included. This draws the eye up and makes shorter women look taller and well put together.
Every woman should wear flats. They’re comfortable and make a good driving shoe. Paired with the hot skinny jeans that are all the rage right now, flats are a must. Pair them with A line skirts or beautiful sweater dresses. Wear them right, and flats can be stylish, playful and dramatic. Flats should definitely have a place in your closet.
Use the following guidelines to be sure that your fashion-rating is high even when your heels aren’t:
Look for Stylish Flats
Since flats usually aren’t as dynamic as heels, look for flats in fashionable colors, materials and textures to help jazz up your look without having to resort to higher heels. The main buzz right now is flats in quilted fabrics, like those from Juicy Couture. Flats that are a must these season are black patent leather Mary Janes. like the ones you can find at SAKS 5th Avenue or at Chanel. The flats go with everything, from shorts to knit dresses and flirty skirts to capris.
Dress Up Simple Flats for an Ultra-Feminine Look
Some flats are decorated with a buckle in front, others are tailored with a round, square or pointed toe. To make up for the simple styling of many flats, consider prettying up your outfit with the ultra-feminine and hip wrap tops, flared sleeves and layered shirts to help convey a head to toe “ballerina” look.
Flats and Skirts
Having no heel on your driving shoes can make your legs appear shorter. You can go for the monochromatic look as we discussed earlier to visually lengthen the leg. Or, If you prefer to wear flats with skirts, shoot for a hemline that is above the knee. This will also regain a look of length to your leg. Beware: Wearing flats with longer skirts make you look like your grandmother, and we certainly don’t want that.
The Right Pants for The Shoes
Capri pants and flats are a match made in heaven, but if you’re wearing long pants, make sure they aren’t too long. It’s sloppy to have your hem drag on the Perhaps the best look with pants are when the flats are coupled with flare lef pants. Plus, when paired with the new skinny jeans, flats are especially gorgeous and as the wearer, you will be in the highpoint of style this season.
What to Wear with Ballerina Flats
Remember when these were so much like real ballerina slippers, and you had to wind the pink ribbon around your ankles? Things changed., How did they change? Now you can find everything from sneakers to evening shoes that are inspired by ballet slippers, and therefore could be categorized as ballerina flats.
Because they don’t have a heel at all, ballerina flats have a tendency to make ones legs appear shorter, so petite women should either avoid them altogether or
Pair them up with a shorter skirt so it extends the amount of leg that is shown. Because of this same quality, Ballerina Flats look especially nice on taller women.
The most captivating of all ballerina flats are those with satin and
embellishments. It makes anything you wear instantly exotic and glamourous. If you need a flat shoe for jeans, try a leather skimmer, or for a sporty look, wear a casual skimmer made of canvas as they look really cute with shorts and denim skirts.
Wearing ballet flats with longr skirts and dresses can create a feeling of romance, but again, it would make petite women look even shorter.
You don’t have to sacrifice fashion, form. style and elegance for comfort. So, whether you’re petite or an amazon, or somewhere in between, give your feet a break every once in a while, and slip into a pair of ultra-comfortable flats that accompanies this season’s dramatic looks.
