High heels elongate your body, making you seem taller and leaner. The added height will help balance your hips and lengthen your legs. Wear pointed-toed shoes rather than round or square-toed pairs to emphasize your limbs' new long, lean appearance, and steer clear of ankle straps and buckles, as they visually shorten the length of your legs. What about those super-skinny stilettos in the back of your closet, you ask? You may want to give them to a friend, as those too-thin heels could make you look unbalanced and out of proportion.
