The 411 on Heels for Tall Women

By: Cinthia Molinar

Tall women can potentially pull off any heel height. However, look for comfort and style when shopping for heels. If you can’t strut your stuff in a pair of heels, ditch ‘em!

Pants and Heels

Remember that high heels shorten the distance between your pant hem and the floor. If you own a pair of pants that are the perfect length with flats, sadly, they’re not going to work with heels. When you do wear pants with heels, make sure to keep the hem no more than 1 inch above the floor. I find that that’s what looks the best. Pants and heels are classic. There isn’t any occasion that doesn’t work with pants and heels. They work for the office or a night out with the girls!

Some heel styles that would look good with jeans:

As I mentioned above, we tall girls can pull off any heels! That includes the tallest of heels -so try everything. The sky is the limit. Also, heels with rounded toes work very well for tall girls. Rounded toe shoes shorten the look of the leg, but women with height don’t have to worry about that.
