Shoes and Sandals that are Sexy and Slim the Leg

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,

I have a knee length summer dress that has been hanging in the closet because I cannot seem to find the right shoes for it. Whenever I put on the shorter dress and my sandals, I feel like my legs look big. Normally I wear longer dresses, even in the summer, to cover my legs because my ankles are thick.


Shoe Shopping Suggestions

Dear Shoe shopping suggestions,

You do not need to cover up your legs because of thick ankles. The type of shoes or sandals that you wear can make a big difference in how your legs look. Proper shoes can elongate the leg, giving the illusion of a slimmer calf or ankle.

Shoe selection guidelines to help legs looks slimmer, longer, sexy, and stylish:

1. Slip-on: Choose slip on type shoes such as mules, slingbacks, or pumps.

2. Avoid ankle straps.

3. Heels: Wear higher heels, platform, or wedge.

4. Color: Select a color that is similar to your skin tone, for example, beige, tan, or metallics such as bronze, copper, gold, or silver. Even if you have a knee length black dress, wear beige shoes to elongate the leg rather than black shoes.
