The world under your feet

Walk Right

Or if you prefer a backless gown, go for stilettos. Women can discover a whole world at their feet — with the right kind of heels.

“People generally ignore their footwear while dressing up. They end up wearing safe colours like black, silver and brown. But each dress has a different requirement and you can make a statement by wearing the right footwear with your favourite dress,” says shoe designer Swati Mehrotra.

Women have the option of wearing heels like stilettos, wedges, kitten heels, cone heels or gladiators, also known as Roman sandals which are very popular these days.
“Wear chunky heels with a bright summer dress and flats with jumpsuits only if you are blessed with a good height, else opt for wedges,” suggests Mehrotra.

Stilettos never go out of fashion. But if it’s not your type, then opt for wedges which are comfortable and fashionable at the same time. Thick wedge heels with a flowing skirt can make the ankle look thin and when used with close-fitting attires can give a clunky look. Age doesn’t matter when it comes to heels. You could grab a pair of kitten heels, or low heels.

Then comes the most stylish of all them all — gladiators — which date back to the ancient culture of the Greeks and Romans. From flats to heels and from ankle length to calf length — gladiators accessorised with zippers, buckles, studs and embroidery can be worn with almost everything. You can also wear your cone heels with your little black dress or with a nice long top and tights.

But avoid matching your shoe with the exact colour of a solid summery dress and wear a comfortable yet stylish pair with your business suit. Fashion designer Nida Mahmood reveals her love for gladiators and says these days she is busy collecting different types of Roman footwear in different colours and heels.

“I am in love with these gladiators — you can wear them with anything. If you are wearing something till the knee, they go very well with it, or else if you are in a super sexy dress, wear one with heels — they are just way too perfect,” said Nida Mahmood.
So pick up your favourite footwear and match it with your sexy dress and go out for that perfect evening.
