Neutral Pumps

Neutral Pumps in Skin-Tone Colors


To give the illusion of a longer leg, try neutral pumps in skin-tone colors. If you match your shoes as closely as possible to your skin tone, there's no abrupt ending to the leg, and so you can look taller and also slimmer. An added plus:  neutral colors go with anything, so you don't have to worry about whether or not your shoes will go with your clothing. As far as the style goes, sleeker styling works better for petite women.
