One thing I learned very early is the importance of chunky heeled shoes. All it took was shredding my favourite stilettos between the wooden slats on my friends deck at a bbq to realise skinny isn’t always best. Chunky heeled shoes give you more surface area to put your weight on so they’re much easier to walk in but they also give a bit of an edge to your look. I am not a fan of mini skirt or mini dresses with a sky high stiletto.. I think it can quickly look tarty and contrived – but pair the same look with chunky heeled shoes and you have a completely different style. Its relaxed, cool, simple yet fashion forward. I also think that chunky heeled shoes transition more easily between seasons. The same shoe you wear in summer with your mini skirts and sundresses can be worn with tights for fall/winter seamlessly. Check out some of my favourite chunky heeled shoes and enjoy being more comfortable but stylish as well!
