One of the most common fashion advice for petite gals is to wear heels because they elongate the silhouette. But although pumps and platforms are super sexy and give us that vertical boost, sometimes we just want to rest our feet, go for a more casual look and wear a pair of sneakers even if it means sacrificing a little height. We know, it's not the most ideal scenario but sometimes we just have to live with what we have, right? The good news is we have another option: heeled sneakers. Call them sneaky, but with these pairs, we can now have the best of both worlds. Here are some of the pieces to choose from.
For dainty outfits
Women's Keds X Rifle Paper Co. Triple Kick Rosalie Embroidered Jute, USD79.95 (keds.com)
Having those extra inches means more space for creative designs like the pretty flower patterns on this pair from the Rifle Paper Co. and Keds collaboration. This particular piece, the Triple Kick Rosalie Embroidered Jute in the white upper, is a perfect match for floral dresses or for any casual look with a feminine touch. On top of the one-inch platform, it also features an extra height in the midsole and a comfy cushion for comfort.
For street style ensembles
Aldo Seveisa, USD85 (aldoshoes.com)
If you're a petite gal who has always wanted to try street style fashion but hesitated because most of the looks won't go well with traditional heeled footwear, then you may want to add Aldo's Seveisa in black and white colourway. With almost three inches of height and its athletic look, this pair will level up your street style cred.
