Matching Heels with a Bodycon Dress
If you love wearing a bodycon dress, you’ll be pleased to know that they are still very much in fashion. But make sure you have the right heels for them or any mini you are wearing. The trend for shoes to pair with these outfits is larger than life, clunky platform heels.

Did you know originally kitten heels were for adolescent girls who needed a slight heel without dressing inappropriately and who were learning to walk in high heels. Now they are making a big comeback in 2023 for all women. The key to wearing them correctly is to go for a sexy but fresh look, or pair them back with work attire.

Another boot trend is heavy boots this season. They may not be the most comfortable footwear around, but admittedly, they do look great teamed with a long leg exposure.
