How To Pull Off: Strappy Shoes for Petites

How To Pull Off: Strappy Shoes for Petites

It can be tough for petites to buy strappy sandals given that straps at the wrong places tend to stunt the frame rather than elongate it. But fret not, attempt this style guide next time round to make those strappy shoes work for you!

Shorter Hemlines

Swap midis out for minis to execute. Shorter hemlines will give the illusion of longer legs, instantly making you look taller plus, giving you more ‘leg’ to wrap those sandal straps around!

Nude Sandals

Instead of the typical “black matches everything” rule, opt for nude sandals. Stick to a shade as close to your skin tone to create that seamless illusion from your legs to your feet. It’s also a better colour for warmer days when you don’t want to be attracting heat!
