Longer legs

It has been said that a nude shoe elongates the legs and makes them appear longer. It’s been said and it’s true. I 100% agree. Trouble is I’m not a fan of a nude shoe and think they’re incredibly boring. With all the fabulous and colorful footwear on offer out there why would I choose a shoe that blends into my skin? I’m not ruling it out forever but it’s just not for me now.

The leg lengthening aspect, however, is for me now and is something I’m very much in favour of. Double trouble is when it comes to  winter and the dreaded tight comes into action it’s hard. Especially if ~ like me ~ you have an abundance of  coloured tights. I used to be all about the coloured tights but in later years, and last year in particular, I tended to head for the more muted colours ~ Black, navy, grey. I felt there was always too much going on with my outfit when a coloured tight was involved and ultimately, when putting a shoe on, always ended up cutting off my legs and making me look dumpy.

My solution? Match your tights to your shoes. Easy. I’ve got enough shoes to be able to match my tights and that way I’m making the most of what I already own. Waste not want not my Shoelets….simply shopping my own wardrobe. Try it. Feels so good.photo 1 (2)
