A nude heel is one of the most useful shoes to have in your closet. As a neutral it will work with basically any outfit, so there are no concerns about clashing. And, when you wear nude heels with a bare leg, it’s lengthening and will make it appear as if you have legs for days.
Now, when I say “nude,” I mean the color (or as close as possible) to your skin tone. So while I’m very pale (with even paler legs), women of color should seek out shoes that are in a shade that compliments their personal hue.
These specific shoes are by Betsey Johnson and are extremely comfortable, and even with a 5 inch heel, easy to walk in. Thanks to the covered platform and thick stacked heel you can strut around without concern of falling over and making an ass of yourself. They also have a leopard print sole with a tiny gold heart (not pictured), so you can appear more demure walking in, and more sex kitten on the way out.
Is there anything sexier than the flash of a red sole as a woman struts away from you? These suckers will give you instant confidence and sex appeal; you stand up taller, your hips swerve back-and-forth, and best of all, they go with everything!
I know, I know, Loubs are uber expensive! I managed to snag this pair for only $200 at Neiman Marcus Last Call, and they’ve paid for themselves ten times over. Most Louboutin heels are significantly more money than what I paid, but having a keen eye and the willing to scour sample sales and outlet stores may lead to a similar payout.
If you can’t afford Louboutins at this point then absolutely get yourself a pair of black patent leather pointy-toe high heels. Again, they will go with anything you own, are super professional for interviews, and can be easily sexed up for a night out. And if they’re not Loubs, then why not have fun with the soles and decorate them- bedazzle them, graffiti, leopard print, whatever! (Just don’t paint them red- you don’t want to get sued!)
