Ladies! Here’s what you need to give a little boost to your height as well as confidence. Step into a stylish pair of stilettos and watch yourself transform into a ‘high’ fashion diva. Wear it with a saree or shorts – you just can’t get the stiletto style wrong.
Stilettos are an all-time favourite among women’s shoes. Ever wonder how these high heels got their name? Stiletto shoes borrow their name from the Stiletto dagger – a long slender knife with a needle-like tip, used as a stabbing weapon. From the early 1930s, the long slender needle-like heel on women’s shoes and boots were referred to as the ‘Stiletto heel’. We don’t think there could have been a better name for Stiletto shoes.
Having said that it is a favourite among women’s shoe styles, Stilettos are anything but everyday style. These high heels are best flaunted at celebrations, parties, red carpets or the ramp. They are simply not designed for a lot of walking around; that is unless you want to torture your feet. They look pretty and stylish, but wearing stilettos for a long period of time is not advisable. To avoid the discomfort of squashing your feet in these high heels for a long time, always carry a pair of comfortable flats with you whenever you go out in stilettos.
Stiletto heels can be anywhere between 1 inch to 10 inch. The higher they get, the more stylish they are; but more uncomfortable too. You can find stiletto heels in woman’s boots as well. Stilleto shoes can give you a taller and slender look – suitable for all body types.
Take a look at how our Bollywood divas like to flaunt their stilettos:
No one knows fashion better than Sonam Kapoor, in Bollywood. At the unveiling of her custom-made Ferragamo shoes, Sonam wore Anamika Khanna draped saree-pants with large danglers and nailed the look with a gold stiletto.
Katrina Kaif looks pretty like a doll in this pink short dress and black gladiator style stiletto heels.
