The lift to stylishness

High Heels. We love them! They make us look tall and elegant, they make us feel sexy! And they conquer our wardrobes with so many different shapes and sizes. However we don’t often realise that they are not all called the same. So I want to introduce you to the most common ones.

Let’s start with the classical and timeless, the STILETTOS. Even though they come in different styles, the most popular are PUMPS which are shoes with a low-cut front and no fastening. Pumps can sometimes have one or more straps across the instep, so they are called MARY JANES. Another classy style for stiletto heels is the SLINGBACK, a type of footwear characterized by strap that crosses behind the heel or ankle.

Stilettos are so versatile that you could wear them for the office or for a special event like a cocktail or a daytime wedding, and they would always add that chic touch to your outfit. And for those who are not really keen on highs you can always opt for KITTEN HEELS, a short stiletto  popularized by Audrey Hepburn, usually from 3.5 centimeters to 4.75 centimeters high.

And if you’re more into the 70s and 80s, there will always be PLATFORM shoes. A very thick sole that can be accompanied by different types of high heels and styles, for example the not mentioned yet PEEP-TOE shoes, a woman's shoe in which there is an opening at the toe-box which allows the toes to show; or WEDGES which are shoes and boots with a sole in the form of a wedge that serves as both the sole and the heel.

So next time you organise your shoe closet, you could classify them as well!
