It is now a common sight that an engaged gal will don a white ensemble for her vort to evoke her expectant wedding gown.
But I notice when I look at full-length photos, something niggles at me. They usually pair the white dress with a white pair of shoes, and that is where my eyes are drawn.
In one photo, by the casual l'chaim, she is wearing black tights and black shoes, and her legs and feet appear to be rather shapely; in the next, for the vort, she is has donned the white dress, sheer stockings, and white shoes, yet now her calves looked obviously less slender.
I decided to blame the footwear. White is not a forgiving shade (maybe that's why many cultures consider it the hue of death), and I find that it is difficult to locate a white shoe that is styled flatteringly enough to make the foot still look dainty.
Fear not, freshly affianced! There is another option.
Nude is a great option for shoes in general.
1) They match EVERYTHING, making them a practical purchase. What to wear with navy is no longer a problem.
2) They make legs look better! They give the visual effect that the leg is longer, ergo leaner.
3) They are ideal for cheering up black attire without having to be a bright shade.
Embrace the nude shoe!
