MOMMA KNOWS… nude heels make legs look longer

photo (1)

My nude Sergio Rossi peep toe pumps go with everything in my closet and never fail to make me look taller (even taller than the 5 inches the heels adds!)

I’m about to let you in on one of my favorite stylist secrets – nude heels are the ultimate shoe.  Beyond the obvious fact that they’re a neutral so they go with everything – they are also the best way to make legs look longer.  Think about it – the perfect nude heels give the illusion that legs keep going and going…  There’s no cut off, no color block at the end – just legs for miles.  As a stylist I have worked with countless models who, let’s face it, don’t need much help in the long legs department, but when working with celebrities who are often petit this little trick always works a charm.  The versatility of nude heels is amazing – from a casual jeans and a t-shirt look, to a conservative professional look to a sexy night on the town – these shoes go the distance and always make you look taller and perfectly polished.   The heel height is almost irrelevant – choose a pair of nude heels you feel comfortable in and find a tone that most closely matches your skin and voila!  Whether you prefer stripy, platform, sling backs, sandals or pumps there are some amazing nude heels that will be sure to give you the legs you’ve always wanted! Think about it, there’s a reason that fashion icons such as Kate Middleton and Anna Wintour have their favorite pairs of nude heels which they wear constantly (LK Bennett and Manolo Blahnik respectively) – because they always work and look chic! Check out some of my favorite nude heels and get ready to show of some great looking gams just in time for spring!
