What's The Best Shoes For Your Body Type?

Some of us focus on clothes in order to fix our common body hang-ups, but we tend to forget that shoes help show off the favorite parts of our body. The shoes that we wear will add emphasis to our posture and adds glamour to our look. That is why it is important to choose the best shoes to our feet. But there are problems when it comes to choosing particular shoes.
Problem 1: Small and petite

If your legs are on the shorter and slimmer side, you usually would want to add height to your frame. Think platforms, wedges and heels without straps. Straps would almost cut your leg off in two, making you look even smaller. Make sure there's nothing in the line of vision between your heel and the rest of your leg. If you want to wear flats shoes, make sure you're wearing a dress that falls above your knee - anything below it will make you look even tinier.
Problem 2: Short and thick

Try a simple pair of heels with a bright pop of color or a unique print so attention gets drawn away from your short legs. Some other flattering choices are open-toed shoes with a solid heel and boots that end just below the knee, not mid-calf. Since your legs tend to be on the thicker side, stay away from gladiator flats or any other shoe style that wraps around your ankle. On that note, it's best to avoid flats as well, because they can make your legs look shorter and thicker.

Problem 3: Tall and thin

Being tall and thin is almost never a problem. Show off your model like physique with a pair of sandals with an ankle strap (it will also give some edge to your feet) especially if you have thin ankles. Flats sandals are great for you because of the height advantage. Butt stay away from chunky heels and platforms because they may overwhelm your ankles.

Problem 4: Muscular legs

We feel awkward when we have muscular legs, but the truth is - toned legs are all kinds of sexy. To elongate the leg, choose a super high heel - in particular, pointy, open-toed shoes and stilettos that will make your legs look leaner. Avoid rounded toe pumps, small squared heels and delicate styles like ballet flats or kitten heels because they can add weight to your legs and make them look heavier.
