Flats, I love them and wear them every day but we all know we look longer and leaner with a heel.
This doesn’t mean I am not going to wear flats; it means there must be ways to wear flats where we can look as long and lean as we do with a heel.
I have figured out what does not work with flats. On me, long very full dresses aren’t the best nor are wide legged full-length trousers. I feel very dumpy and cut off if I wear a tailored trouser with volume and I add flats. Throw the heels on and it’s a whole other story.
Heels are the hero and there is nothing to make a girl feel more womanly than an elegant pair of heels but real life, or mine in particular means flats are in 90% of the time. I spend my time in a walking city or the Provencal countryside; practicality reigns.
Here is what I have come up with to feel longer and leaner when wearing flats,
3 Ways To Look Longer and Leaner in Flats
- 2. Pants, the capri style and a shorter length work wonderfully with flats. If a pant is fuller or flared they look best stopping above the ankles when worn with flats. Jeans, the skinnier styles and the cropped styles support flats well.
- 3. Longer outer layers over a cropped pant and a pair of flats are a great way to go. Either a longer line shirt or jacket over a 3/4 pant is an easy and smart way to stay away from the heels.
The fashion gurus and the marketers show most fashion with heels; it’s not always real life to wander the world stacked high above 10cm.
Try these style tricks with your flats; it works for me. xv
