Being a petite lady comes with its own perks. Trust me.

You need to find clothes and shoes that are the perfect fit. Shoes have a way of changing your whole outfit. For instance, heels can transform a simple day dress into a date night outfit, just like that.

And let’s not forget the funny YouTube videos of ladies struggling to walk in heels. You definitely don’t want to be one them for sure so your comfort is everything when selecting a pair of great shoes.

Depending on your body shape, height, outfit and commutability, you need to know what shoes need to be worn on what occasions. Imagine wearing a ten-inch heel to run your daily errands or for a picnic in a lush garden.

Another thing you need to be wary of is not choosing shoes that make your legs or body look awkward. Make sure the shoes you go for are the correct size to avoid dragging your legs because the shoes are either too big or swollen from blisters.

Get it right with these tips:
