“A nude shoe helps elongate your leg because it doesn’t break up the line of body,” says style expert Jacqui Stafford, author of “The Wow Factor: Insider Style Secrets for Every Body and Every Budget.” “Consequently, you look taller and skinnier.”
The key is to match your shoe to your skintone.
“One of the best things about a nude shoe is that it’s a complete neutral, so it works with absolutely everything in your closet, and you never have to think about it,” Stafford says. “When you’re busy, trying to decide which shoe to wear is the last thing you want to think about.”
Great news—but honestly, she had us at “taller and skinnier.”
