Women have known for years that a great pair of heels will make their legs look slimmer. This of course is providing that attention is paid to the skirt length, and individual leg shape.
The first thing heels will do is lengthen the body. For every inch in height, takes away from the weight factor. Every weight charts show that for every increased inch in height will fluctuate the recommended weight by approximately adding five pounds to the subject. That means that an average 2-inch heel gives the appearance of being 10- slimmer, not just in the leg, but all over.
- When the knee is larger in relative to the calf, the skirt length should reach the bottom on the knee cap.
- When the calf is shapeless and undefined or when the ankle is appears larger in relative to the calf, wear light-weight dress slacks during the summer with heels. In the winter, use over the knee boots with a skirt or try darker hose.
- Betty Gable had all the correct dimensions with her killer legs. When a diva falls into this category and most anything goes in the height of shoes, and types and length and skirts.
- One rule for all applies and that is remaining monochromatic in a wardrobe. Skirt, hosiery, shoes in the same shade or very close creates a visually longer line without actually changing anything.
