Look Taller — Without the Heels

Not every girl wants to wear heels, but we're pretty sure most girls we know are always looking for a longer, leaner leg line. Happily, there's a way to have both, since these flats are all designed with clever details that lend the illusion of longer stems (which equals a taller you). Just be on the lookout for these key elements when shopping for your flats:

  • Opt for flats with a pointed, not square or rounded toe.
  • A lower vamp, which reveals more of your foot, will also help create the illusion of a longer leg line.
  • Look for flats without chunky, dark-colored straps across the front of the foot or ankle, which will break up the leg from the foot and make your legs appear shorter.
  • Steer clear of cap-toed shoes, which also break up the foot and make it appear stubbier or shorter.

Now, just sit back and scroll — we've done the work for you and rounded up the most flattering pointed-toe flats.
