High Heels Can Change A Whole Look

We know they can be painful, and we know we’ve been warned they aren’t good for our feet, but heels re­ally can take a look that we’re bored with and turn it into some­thing we feel awe­some about. Oh, the power of ac­ces­sories.

Add Ac­ces­sories To In­stantly Look Polished

You can get away with wear­ing a pair of nice jeans and a T-shirt nearly any­where if you amp up the look with ac­ces­sories. Try throw­ing on a state­ment neck­lace, an in­tri­cate bracelet, or even some stand­out ear­rings.

Wear Sun­glasses

You only have one set of eyes, so why not pro­tect them in style?

Pair Flats with Short Hem­lines and Heels With Any­thing Longer

Not Sure What Shoes To Wear With Your Skirts And Dresses? Here’s The Rule: Wear Flats When The Skirt Hits Above Your Knee, And Heels With Longer Hem­lines. You Can, Of Course, Make Ex­cep­tions, But In Gen­eral, These Pro­por­tions Will Keep You Look­ing Polished With­out Mak­ing You Look Trashy (Short Skirt) Or Dowdy (Long).

In­vest in Good Un­der­wear

Wear­ing nice un­der­wear ev­ery day will make you feel spe­cial. Sure, not ev­ery­one gets lucky enough to see how nice your un­der­wear is, but you’ll know. Also, make sure you get your bras fit­ted of­ten. It will make your clothes hang bet­ter and be in­fin­itely more com­fort­able.

Show Skin Strate­gi­cally

Look­ing truly sexy in­volves know­ing what to bare-and what to keep cov­ered. Oth­er­wise, where’s the mys­tery? Al­ways choose one body part and show it off. If it’s cleav­age, don’t show your legs. If it’s your legs, stay cov­ered on top.
