I’d never sacrifice fashion for comfort and vice versa – they must go hand in hand, or in this case foot in foot.
Everyone has a heel height they’re comfortable with. When it comes to elegant cocktail attire, you will see me in no less than a 4inch stiletto. On more casual evenings, I will opt for a thicker or mid-heel height – think 3 inches. For day time, lunches, meetings or when I’m just in the mood to get dressed up, I go for a kitten or 2-3 inch heel height that has more of an attitude – so not your basic stiletto.
I typically prefer suede for evening and leather for the day, but given the right shoe, I can easily be persuaded to change my mind. Velvet is a no brainer and the ultimate luxe.
There are certain wardrobe staples that are worth investing in and the black stiletto is one of them.
To quote Coco Chanel, “A woman with good shoes is never ugly.”
