Leg-Lengthening Espadrilles

June 28, 2012

Sarah of Chevrons & Stripes made a really good point during a recent outfit post that I didn’t touch on yet is the exact reason why I bought years ago the white espadrilles in the post. They are leg lengthening. As someone who was at one point 35 pounds heavier than I am now, I totally understand that many women avoid any shoes with straps around their ankles because it can make legs appear shorter any stockier. No one wants that! Finding wedges and shoes sans the straps are much more universally flattering, especially depending on your height and shape. Check out these espadrille wedge options if you want a stylish look for summer (you’ll have any pair here for years!) that keeps you on trend while showing off your gorgeous legs.

    I really like the Nine West wedges the best because they are not as thick under the toe area :) Beautiful picks though!!

      Great point! The wedge in the front adds height but definitely not for everyone. Love Nine West’s stripes right now.
