High heels have been around since the beginning of time and even nowadays, they remain a popular fashion statement. If you are considering buying high heels, there are a few things to consider before making your purchase. These include what kind of height you would like to achieve with the shoes, the cost, and how often you will wear them.
What is the best height for a basic heel?
If you are not very tall, an inch or two may be a great place to start. If you already wear heels, then you can upgrade by a few inches. If you are very short, it is probably best to stick with a height (up to 3 inches) that does not elongate your legs and feet too much.
What about height for special occasions?
Special occasion heels can be anything from 4-10 inches depending on the look that you want to achieve. Ultimately this depends on how tall or short you are. For example, if you are tall, over 6 feet, and want to look taller still, it is best to stick with 4-inch heels. If you are short but want to appear tall a 6-8 inch heel should be the minimum.
What about the color?
Heels can be found in almost any color of the rainbow and many of them go with most outfits. The lighter-colored shoes such as tan or cream look good with just about everything and black can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Red shoes do not match with just everything but when they match they really pop!
What about the price?
High heels are available at varying prices depending on where you buy them. If you buy them in department stores or boutiques, then expect to pay between 50 and 100 dollars for a pair. If you buy them online then the cost tends to be even higher.
How often do I need to wear the shoes?
Most women wear heels every day, at least once a week. If you have only worn them once or twice and don’t really like them, it is probably best not to spend too much money on buying more pairs. There are heeled shoes that are made just for working out, walking, and other activities where they will get more comfortable with time and use.
High heels can be very expensive and time-consuming to wear. If you don’t have big feet or a lot of legs, it is best that you try out some of the cheaper pairs before spending a lot on new shoes. Remember that not everyone has the same height in their heels and you may need to try out several pairs until you find one which looks good on your body type.
