Wearing Nothing But Heels

Wearing Nothing But Heels

Fashion can often serve as a form of self-expression, and wearing heels can be one such statement of freedom and individualism. Donning heels may serve to challenge social norms or add interest to an already eye-catching ensemble.

High heels were once only seen worn by women. Today however, high heel shoes remain fashionable accessories among many fashion-savvy individuals; but with increased discussion around who may and cannot wear heels becoming increasingly heated, the question of who may and must don heels remains open to debate.

Heels have long been debated as both social and professional statements; for women dealing with demanding jobs, heels can pose additional safety hazards when worn with tight-fitting trousers. And some claim that heels may even contribute to physical ailments like shin splints and broken bones.

Avoiding high heel-related discomfort begins with choosing appropriate footwear. Avoid square toed heels which only serve to shorten legs; opt instead for those shaped more like slippers than stilettos.

If you’re petite, heels can actually help add height to your outfit – especially when combined with clothing that already elongates your legs like a skirt and wedges or wide-leg jeans with chunky heel ankle booties.

One way to add length without adding unnecessary bulk is with nude-colored shoes. Nude hues tend to complement your skin tone and can fool people into believing there is no discernible edge to where the shoe begins and ends.

Whenever you plan on wearing heels for extended periods, investing in padded soles could be invaluable in keeping your feet warm while cushioning against walking impact.

Selecting inappropriate shoes can completely destroy an otherwise beautiful ensemble. Heels that are too large, short or otherwise unflattering will significantly diminish your look – as well as being uncomfortable; thus it’s best to steer clear if possible.

Avoid kitten heels and slip-ons as these create the appearance of wearing flats; such shoes only add bulky layers that won’t flatter anyone! Instead, aim for 2″-high or higher heels.

Though the debate over who gets to wear heels and who doesn’t is nothing new, it remains an essential one that needs to be resolved so we all live safer, more fulfilling lives. Thank goodness there are men like Mark Bryan who bring fresh perspective to society’s views of heels.
