How To Look Taller - The Magic Of Nude Shoes

The post where I appear taller!

After searching for what seemed like a lifetime and then having to wait for the right shoes to come back into stock, I finally posses a pair of nude coloured shoes. They have just the right amount of heel to give me some actual height and are a good width so they do not crush the toes together.

They got their first outing on Sunday night and I have to say I love them.

You may remember this black Coast Dress (Nikita) from a previous post where I teamed it with purple accessories for a wedding. The post can be found by clicking here . On that occasion I wore ankle strap purple shoes, which are one of my favourite pairs as they are relatively low heeled and quite comfortable.

However, I think that this combination of the black dress and nude heels really work. I feel that this elongates my body and legs and creates the illusion of me appearing taller than I actually am. This is classy and elegant, and very grown up!

I love my ankle strap shoes but when I compare them to this photo I can see how they are making me look shorter, my legs appear to finish at my ankles and this is just not as flattering as a court style/stiletto shoe can be.

Let's face it at just 4ft 11 I need all the help I can get to look taller :-)

What do you think?
