A killer pair of heels can make a woman feel tall, powerful and sexy. Wearing them at inappropriate times, though, can make her look lean more towards the trashy or the ridiculous. Avoid wearing heels to these locations and you’ll never have a questionable shoe moment.
The beach or the swimming pool
Only models and the ultimate fashionistas in the fantasy world of Sex and the City can pull off the swimsuit and high heels combination. Otherwise that outfit looks, well, more like that of a Playboy bunny. Plus no one can walk on sand in heels. Stick with some good ole flip-flops.
Keep the girly girl accessories to a minimum at sporting events. You can still look feminine without bringing out the stilettos at the ball game. Wear a cute outfit and some flats instead.
You may want to channel your inner adorable world traveler by wearing heels and carrying matching luggage, but the reality of the airport makes that shoe choice a bit unsuitable. Do you really want to hightail through the airport in four-inch heels because of a last-minute gate change? Or balance on one precarious spike while trying to take off your other shoe in the security line? You won’t be sorry if you wear your slightly beaten up, but most comfy shoes when traveling.
Do you have an embarrassing shoe moment? I’d love to hear about it in the comments section.
