Do you go into a debate with yourself on wether to wear flats or heels?
I do this on a regular basis. Do I go for comfort or a nicer leg line? Am I willing to sacrifice some comfort for a slightly fancier look? Do I really sacrifice style when I’m wearing flats?
Let’s put it to the test shall we and compare this outfit with both flats and heels!
In favour: Heels elongate my legs and create a nicer proportional silhouette. As I’m wearing my top over my skirt a longer leg line will come closer to the 1/3-2/3 silhouette that I’m aiming to create.
Against: Heels make this outfit a bit older and more lady-like. And of course they are a lot less comfortable then my flats!
In favour: if you choose the right flats they can create a funkier look. These patterned flats add a bit of fashion and funkiness to the outfit. Of course they are more comfortable too and make you look like you are not trying too hard. It’s generally a more casual and relaxed look.
Against: I do like the additional length with this outfit and proportionally, heels would be nicer here.
Here is a comparison side by side.
So what do you say? Heels or flats?
