Womens Dress Shoes

Women's Dress Shoes for Tall Women: Dos and Don'ts
By Kimi Lasser

Many taller women wear high heels that make them tower over the crowd and ultimately cause them to stand out even more. There are, however, perfect shoes for every height.

Kitten heels are one alternative to the average skyscraper heel found under most dresses. Kitten heels can range from half an inch to a full inch. These heels allow for taller women to wear a feminine style heel without adding inches of height.

Other types of women's dress shoes that are flattering to the statuesque physique are flats. Flats have very small to no heels and are often extremely comfortable. Contrary to popular belief, flats can also come in dressier styles to wear with all types skirts, dresses, and slacks.

The best part of both kitten heels and flats is that after wearing them with an evening outfit, both look excellent with a pair of jeans. Heels can contribute to the high-water effect of jeans that are way too short. Finding long enough pants is a dilemma tall women continually face. This is why small heels can be worn with jeans and other pants without making them look way to short.
With long legs, as often found on tall women, shoes with rounded toes look especially stylish without adding any length to the foot or leg. For the opposite effect, pointed or elongated shoes only add length to those long legs, and end up looking elfish.

Tall women should not add to their height with 4-inch heels but compliment their height with lower heeled yet feminine footwear. This way, they can walk tall and confident instead of self-conscious and hunched over.
