You have probably experienced it: staring at your rack of shoes and rows and rows of pristine pants but with no idea how to pair them.
If it helps, this is a relatively common dilemma.
Well, we attempt to put you out of your fashion misery with four tips on how to wear pants with heels.
1. Slimming Pants
When wearing slimming pants, you want to pair them with a shoe that agrees with the general theme, which is to make you long slimmer.
The quickest trick of achieving this is by lengthening the legs. The easiest trick in the book is a pair of sleek pointed heels or pointy pumps.
Your slimming pants can meet the shoe at the ankle or cover it slightly. You will still look nice and trim.
Wide bottomed pants are very forgiving when it comes to heel pairing. These pants can make you look shorter and stubbier than you are when paired with flats.
Wide-legged pants are flowy and begin to flare towards the top. This volume is what you need to compliment when picking a heel. A pointed pump not only adds length but also sneaks from beneath the pants, giving you a more stylish look.
Heel choices are flexible, and you can identify one that is best suited for the occasion.
3. Jeans and Denim
There is not much to dislike about jeans and denim pants, with their numerous shades, cuts, designs and styles.
While denim and jeans give off a more casual look with flats and sneakers, pairing them up with heels can elevate that look into a more sophisticated look.
The hottest look in town is holding up a pair of jeans at the bottom and pairing them with strappy heels or sleek high heels. For a less casual look, forego the folding and roll your skinny jeans out completely. Complete this look with a lovely pair of heels and a blazer.
4. Capri Pants
These are pants that run longer than shorts but shorter than trousers. These are stylish and can be dressed up or down and accessorized to accomplish different looks.
These sit high enough to allow enough attention to your shoes, so some thought has to go into your footwear.
An excellent choice for Capri pants is mid-heeled, pointy shoes. If you are going for length, a strappy heel will do the trick.
You will be surprised by how many stunning looks you can create just by changing small details. When it comes to dressing, creativity should be front and centre.
Whenever you are not in a hurry to dress, try pairing different heels with different pants and accessories and see what you get. You never know: you might stumble on your next best look by accident.
