Earlier this week Someone asked me to talk about what is appropriate in regard to heel height when comes to work. So here are a couple of my tips on heel height; what is ok and what you should maybe pass on…
Things to avoid for corporate: you don’t want your shoes to look like “club” shoes; avoid super strappy heels, options that tie up the leg, those with a high, exposed platform. These types of shoes can send the wrong message and can also be a distraction or draw the wrong attention.
For weekend/outside of the office, your “free” time is really all about what you are comfortable in. If you love heels, this is the time you can do your 4″ or higher. Just remember, the higher the heel, the shorter your skirt or shorts will look since your legs will appear longer. Keep this in mind and plan accordingly based on your occasion/location.
Because all work environments are not the same, some decisions on what is right or wrong will have to be left up to your judgement based on the culture of your work environment. If you are unsure, err on the side of more conservative.
I hope these tips help. Let me know what you guys think!
