:: Trousers and jeans should fall to the bottom of the heel
:: Don't wear black shoes with light-coloured clothing unless the sandals are extremely dainty
:: Black shoes shouldn't be worn with brightly-coloured clothes as they cheapen the colours. Black shoes look best with darker colours
:: If you have thick ankles, avoid flat, ballerina-style shoes and ankle straps which cut across the ankle
:: Avoid thin, teetering heels if you have skinny legs – the heels will look like they're going to snap under the weight of your body, which appear heavier than your legs
:: If you are pear-shaped, avoid dainty kitten heels.
