Have you ever fallen in love with a pair of shoes, only to realize they didn’t look good on you once you tried them on? We worry about being able to find the right size (a feat made no easier by the fact you might be a 7 in one shoe and a 9 in another!), but choosing the right style for your shape of foot is essentially just as important. Whether you’re a 5.5 like me or a 10 like Kelly, I’ve found a variety of pairs that’ll have you looking your best!
The slenderness of thin feet lends itself to the shape of a pointed-toe pump, whether in classic black or neon yellow.
