Get your style in high heels to look better

High heels to look better
It’s all started in 16th Century, European royalty wearing high-heeled shoes to showcase them as taller and attractive. Amazingly, still the trend is continuing.  In modern society, high heel shoes are a necessity in women’s fashion. Some women feels, though high heeled shoes gives discomfort at times, but it helps to boost confidence in them. Obviously, heels are a must for woman's shoes, no shoe can be too flat. There are lot of varieties in heel shapes like, curved, straight, block and banana heels and can be chosen based on one’s style quotient. It always helps to go for a trial with all varieties before finalizing one.

  • Prism – This is in triangle form by three flat sides. Point of triangle contacts floor
  • Cone – Broad round heel sole and the narrow point contacts with the ground
  • Wedge – Arch shaped, heel portions of the foot contacts with the ground
  • Puppy – It comes with 2 inches in height, heels looks like square block
  • Kitten – Slim and short heel, narrow point of contact with the floor
  • Spool – Broad base contacts with the ground

The heel comes in oval, round or square toe shapes. Women, who are daring, go with peep-toe boots, the winter variety of peep-toe shoes, which leave the wearer's toes exposed. The colors are more attractive, especially the dark one, whether it is for classy pumps or delicate lace-up booties. Apart from black and brown, other colors are getting popular now. Plum, blackberry, moss green, pink, petrol blue and dark blue are leading the trend.

The heels come in colorful eye-catchers. The accessories added sparingly in the shoe brings classy look to the footwear. The buckle on pumps, frays, zippers and rivets helps to decorate the wear and improve the aesthetic looks. Appearance should not be the end for all. Women today want footwear that is not only attractive but it should fit well.

Men shoes primarily having low heels except cowboy boots. Men started realizing the important of attractive shoes for their own style. Designers felt the demand from men for stylish boots and more varieties coming in the market. It may not be with high heels, but with more masculine looks. But, the choice of colors still tends to be either black or dark brown. It is slowly changing in the store shelves to give way to grey, metallic, and olive green models. This trend will continue and there will be more models for men will come in future.
