Flat shoes are soft and light shoes with a very thin heel or the appearance of no heels at all.
Nothing is more comfortable than wearing flat shoes. However, many women feel that this will make them look frumpy and less elegant. Although it is true that shoes with heels are often a bit more elegant and can be flattering for you, flat shoes can be very elegant and hip too. Flat shoes have one major advantage: they are comfortable and will allow you to walk for a long stretch or for long stretches of time.
Another great advantage to wearing flat shoes is: By revealing the ankle, flat shoes show the full length of the leg without “cutting” it. Therefore, they are the best choice to elongate your figure.
However, it’s important that you buy the right kind of shoe. You also want to make sure that you wear shoes that fit the clothes you are wearing and hopefully enhance them.
There are quite a few tips that can help you rock your flat shoes in the best way. They include:
Make sure you buy your shoes in the right size. Many women go up a size in shoe as they age, so don’t assume that you will keep the same size throughout life.
More is not more when it comes to shoes. Invest in quality and stick to good quality leather whenever possible. It’s worth investing in flats as you will usually wear them much more often than your heels.
Make sure that you buy shoes you can walk in!
When your outfit is very basic and simple, you may want to tone it down with simple and elegant shoes. (As usual it’s all about balance).
Although you often will match your shoes with one of the colors of your clothes, you can also do the opposite and add a contrasting color.
Make sure though that the tone of color has the same kind of saturation as the other colors in your outfit. This is easiest to do with black and white, which can be matched with any bright color like red, yellow, green or blue.
A good thing to look out for is padding. As you age, you lose quite a bit of the natural padding in your feet, so you may need to compensate for that with your flat shoes.
