You may not have been born with the longest of legs, but don’t let that bother you. If you want to have killer legs that are long and lean, you just have to know a few shoe tricks. Here are five styles of shoes that can streamline your legs and make them look like they go on for miles.
1. Choose Pointy Toe
High heels are the most obvious way to make your legs look long and lean, but did you know that pointy toe will also give you a few extra inches? Any pointy toe shoe, with a high heel or even a flat heel, extends your legs beyond your toes. Round or square toe don’t do that.
2. Go Nude
The color of your shoes can also change how long your legs appear. Choose a nude shoe – a shoe in a shade very close to your skin tone, to create a seamless transition between your leg and the shoe and elongate your legs.
3. Wear a Low Vamp Shoe
The more that is skin exposed, the longer your leg will look, so it makes sense that if you want glamazon legs you should wear a shoe with a low vamp. The lower the cut the shoe, the longer your legs look.
4. Try a d’Orsay
Here’s one you may not have thought of, but it works well too. The d’Orsay pump with its cutaway side exposes more skin than a regular shoe, balancing out thick ankles and highlighting the sexy arch of the foot. Voila! Long lean legs.
5. Slip On a Peep Toe
Similar to the d’Orsay, the peep toe shoe reveals more skin than a closed toe, but this time at the tip of your foot. A peep toe draws the eye to the front of the foot and gives your legs a bit of extra stretch.
Enjoy showing off those gorgeous gams!
