Celebrities and style bloggers are photographed all over the place these days wearing bright white sneakers. The look is widely touted as a sure-fire way for mature women to look youthful and sporty. Here’s the reason you might want to think twice before jumping on this particular band wagon.
When you look at the collage of sneaker-clad beauties below, where does you eye invariably land? On their feet, right? If that is the part of yoursef you’d prefer to accent, if you want no-one ever to look at your face or make friendly eye contact … this might be just the look for you.
But if you want to look taller and sleeker and to have people connect with your non-verbal communication thru facial epressions, avoid all that brightness at the bottom of your look. To paraphrase a famous footwear manufacturer: Just DON’T do it!
A sleek, comfy sandal or even a bootie, in a color that echoes the color(s) of your hair, will instead encourage people to look upward to your face, your eyes, your communication centers. You’re much more likely to make a personal connection … and you’ll appear taller and trimmer in the process.
What’s not to like about that?
