How to Choose the Right Heel Height for the Right Occasion

Honey, The Right Shoe Can Change Your Life

Heels are a type of footwear that raises the heel to the level significantly higher than the toes. This type of footwear has long history and the most interesting thing is that over all these years it has never lost its popularity. Heels are very popular among women because they make them look taller, more glamorous and attractive. One of the reasons why heels remained so popular for centuries is because of the many types of heels – they can be different when it comes to color, height and material.

This means that women that care about their appearance should always be careful which type of heels they wear. Different occasions require different types of heels. Their height is probably the most important thing, because wearing heels with unsuitable height can make you stand out from the crowd in a negative way. Luckily there are some tips that can help you choose the right heel height depending on the occasion.

1. High Heels

These are probably the most popular and most attractive heels. When women wear high heels they transform their body – they look like they have longer legs, they improve their posture and have increased confidence. On top of that, men just cannot resist looking at women wearing high heels. Young women and girls usually wear high heels that are higher than 10 cm. However, these heels are not suitable for every occasion. If you are planning to take long walk, stand on your feet for a longer period or walk on grass or sand it’s better to leave your high heels and put something else on your feet. These heels are perfect for visiting restaurants and night clubs.

2. Mid Heels

When it comes to heel height, it’s good to point out that you don’t have to wear very high heels in order to look fashionable. Mid heels can look equally attractive and they certainly are much easier to wear. This type of heels is the ideal choice for women that have average height because they can provide the needed height without making them look very tall. You can wear these heels during day when you go at the local coffee shop or during night if you choose to visit a pub or a bar.

3. Sky Scrapers

These so-called sky scraper heels are really popular in the last few years. They can be considered as a subcategory of high heels (the difference is in their soles). Sky scrapers are definitely fashion shoes and they are the first choice for many celebrities. The number of occasions where you can wear sky scrapers is very limited and mostly linked to the amount of time you want to spend standing. You should wear them only on occasions when you don’t have to walk or stand.
