Know your Heels with VoguishlyChic

Last week, I had put down a theme week on my Instagram page #KnowYourHeels. As I had mentioned categorically in my debut post my affinity for heels, I decided to draft a post on the same. I am just trying to justify the obsession, just in case you guys are wondering the overwhelming overdose of heels (is anyone even complaining).

I like my money right where I can wear them, on my heels !!!!- My original 

I absofreakingly adore heels and never really get tired of buying new ones. I don’t think anyone does. I am perpetually wearing heels, like, ALL THE TIME ( well, almost) and I have realized that wearing heels is an Art. An art which encompasses 80% desire and 20%skill. If you desire to wear them , you can , considering the  umpteen number of styles available making us spoilt for choice.

Each day of the week was dedicated to different kind of heels. I hope you guys enjoy the journey as much I did putting it down for you lovelies.

Day 1 #knowyourheels: Ankle Strap Wedges

To begin with, we have Shoerazzi’s current favourite; Ankle Strap Heels. As we are slowly moving towards Spring/Summer, these heels are a cult classic. The beauty of these are that it never really goes out of style and revamps and relaunches itself, every year. These heels fetch brownie points from my side since this style makes your legs appear slimmer and longer.

Day 2 #knowyourheels : Almond Toe Chunky Heels

Pretty obvious from its name, these heels derive their shape from that of an almond. These heels are the most flattering and comfortable on the toes. They effortlessly transition from day to night looks and exudes infinite sophistication. Looks best with fitted trousers or skirts, avoid loose hems.

Day 3 #knowyourheels: Peep Toes

By far, the cutest pair to be made by mankind, these heels have been around since 1940. They are a vintage classic and the make contributes to its flirty status. These are the most versatile ones out there and can be worn with trousers, skirts, jeans , just about anything. Can be worn all season round except for the colder months unless you want a fashion faux-pas with the tights/sock being visible.

Day 4 #knowyourheels: Platform Wedges

I wanted to share with you a little piece of history associated with the wedge shoe. This is the most popular style and was invented by Salvatore Ferragamo in Italy when there was a condition of closed trade. The wedge shoe was invented out of necessity in the 1940s, however, now its a staple.

Day 5 #knowyourheels :Kitten Heels

Made popular by Audrey Hepburn, came into being as a subtle take on the classic stiletto. This trend rose from the phoenix and gained prominence in 2004. They are the most comfortable and provides the best of both the worlds.

Day 6 #knowyourheels: Slingback

“The elegance of a great pair of slingbacks is often underestimated,” says Vogue.com Accessories Editor Brooke Ely Danielson. Since the 1930s, slingbacks have been reinvented with virtually every shoe trend to incorporate the latest styles. They are sometimes used on platform shoes, on loafers or comfortable shoes, and even on Keds like tennis shoes. Espadrilles may feature this kind of design, as can shoes with kitten heels, stilettos, or any other varieties. They remain popular and stylish shoes and a nice variation on the traditional closed shoeback look.

Day 7 #knowyourheels: Stilettos

As they put it, You save the best for the last!! So I ended my theme week with the ‘Queen’ of heels : The Stiletto. We owe it to Ferragamo yet again for bringing these to the world and the movie “Sex and the City” for making it so popular. These are definitely not for for the faint hearted and screams power and oodles of confidence.

Thankfully the week comprises of seven days or else I would have gone on till eternity. Thanks for being part of my heel journey 🙂

Until next time,

Stay Stylish, Stay You
