Building a beautiful wardrobe on a budget is no easy endeavor.
Purchasing up a storm and accumulating a colossal wardrobe seems fabulous, but can quickly spiral into a financial nightmare. The secret to affordable style is to scour for the highest quality pieces at the price you can afford. Buying key clothing articles that can intermix with other pieces, transitioning from season to season, is the smartest way to shop.
Invest in the nude heel. It’s sensible and sophisticated yet often overlooked for the latest “it” ankle boot or embellished platform pump. Nude colored heels are the most figure-flattering footwear option available for any woman. Some pumps or booties can interrupt the line of your leg whereas nude heels add the appearance of long, lean limbs.
Not only will your gorgeous gams grow to new heights strutting in a nude heel (hey, a girl can dream!), but you will never be without a classic, sexy shoe option. Nude heels are considered a basic for any women’s wardrobe and are versatile for both the office or a night on the town.
Cover your basic bases first by purchasing a pair of knockout nude heels and forgo spending the dough for those one-time-wear Jimmy Choo sling-backs.
