If you have big feet, you know how it can impact your life. Sometimes it is difficult to find shoes that fit properly or the cutest styles you want are not made in your size. However, having big feet is not a terrible thing. Our feet are made to give us a firm foundation for all of the activities and work we will do through our life. We need to embrace our larger feet and show them off beautifully to the world. If you are self-conscious about having big feet, here are a few fashion tips on how to get them to appear smaller.
Big Feet? Here’s How to Make Your Feet Appear Smaller
- Opt for a sandal style that shows off some skin. Sandals naturally draw the attention to your skin and not your overall foot size. In addition, a lot of women like to wear an ankle bracelet to draw the eye up towards the ankle and away from the bottom of their feet.
- Flip-Flops are a good option, if you live in a warmer climate or if it’s currently summer. Flip-Flops work for the same reasons that we listed above, showing that skin. Unfortunately they are not always practical so…. Moving on.
- High-Heels are sexy…no matter what your foot size. When selecting heels, opt for a wedge-style or a chunky block-heel pump. You’ll want to avoid those spike-heels and pointy-toes which make feet appear larger. A nice high-heel with a rounded-toe works best and is more comfortable too.
- Avoid the classic flat footwear styles like boat shoes, oxfords, ballerina flats and most-styles of loafers. They cover too much of the foot (no skin showing through) and they make your feet appear larger. Look for ones with less coverage over the foot or some cut outs, like in our Mary Jane Clog Sandal.
- Going barefoot? Adorn your ankles with ankle bracelets and a toe ring on each foot. You’re drawing more attention to your jewelry accessories, than to the size of your feet. Don’t forget that pedicure too!
Choosing the proper footwear for your bigger feet can make the difference in not only how they look on your feet, but how you feel in them as well. Self-confidence is powerful and sexy, so wear it well.
