Connecting Fashion Around The World
When Christian Louboutin said, “High heels empower women in a way”, he sure knew what he was talking about. You may love your sneakers and your flats, but you cannot disagree that heels give you confidence and elegance unlike any other footwear you own. Think about it, which footwear would make you feel better, flats for women or pumps? If you are confused about which pair of heels you should own, start by familiarizing yourself with all the different types of heels available in the market. Below, you’ll find a list to keep you abreast with the heels that are in vogue:
You’d be surprised to know but the word ‘stiletto’ actually means a metal dagger. Stilettos are defined by the long, sharp heels and hence the name. Stilettos can rise up to a whopping eight inches and are definitely not a piece of cake to walk in. Walking in stilettos requires a certain technique that can only be mastered with practice. But once you’ve got it right, there’s no turning back.
Pumps are not as high as stilettos. Their height varies between two to three inches and they are typically low cut towards the front area. The best part of pumps is that they go with any outfit. You can pair this women footwear with dainty dresses or formal wear, and these heels take any ensemble a couple of notches higher. If you don’t already own them, make sure you grab one of these trusty heels on your next shopping trip.
Though wedges maybe similar to stilettos in terms of height, but that is the only similarity you’ll find between these two types of footwear. Wedges are known to be effortless footwear as they are the most comfortable amongst all of the heels. The reason for this is that there is no separation from the heel to the sole; and hence they offer more support to the wearer and prevent them from staggering like other eight-inch heels. Wedges are the preferred choice of footwear during the summer season and go especially well with sundresses.
You’d think that the classic stilettos would be the footwear in vogue currently but no one would have guessed kitten heels would be back all the way from the 90’s. Most would agree that this type of footwear is a blessing in disguise. Kitten heels come with a shorter heel and still give you that chic look. They are great to wear to work as well as on casual outings with friends. If you are on the hunt for a footwear that is comfortable as well as stylish, kitten heels is the right choice for you.
