Elevate Your Style


1. Play with Different Heights


Regarding height, you can choose from various options based on your comfort. In addition, the different kinds of heels offer their unique benefits.


  • Low: Low heels are 2.5-5cm, ideal for first-time users. They're comfortable, easy to walk in and give you the slight lift you need. Choose this if you're in the market for everyday wear, such as for the office, running errands, or even casual outings. 

  • Mid: Mid-heels are perfect for those who want a little more height but still want to be able to walk comfortably. They're 5-7 cm and offer more support than a high heel. 

  • High: Consider wearing high heels for special occasions, when you want to make a bold fashion statement, or if you can bear it. They can be challenging to walk in since they are more than 7cm, but they can make your legs look longer and leaner and add a touch of elegance to your outfit.


2. Mix and Match


Mixing and matching different clothing and accessories with heels is a great way to create various looks and add some interest to your outfit. Mix and match different colours, textures, and patterns to create a unique look. 


The key is finding the right balance between the elements and making them look cohesive with your shoes. Look deep into your closet to find outfits you've forgotten are in there, and they will likely match your Wildfire heels.


3. Use Heels to Define Your Waist


Heels are an excellent way to create the illusion of a defined waist. When you wear them, they make your legs look longer and draw attention to the bottom half of your body, making your waist look slimmer and more defined.

One option is to wear your shoes with a top that shows off your waist or to belt a dress that doesn't have a clear waistline. You can pair your boots with high-waisted bottoms like high-waisted pants, skirts, or shorts, letting them sit at the natural waist.


4. Accessorise


When you pair your heels with the right accessories, you'll be able to create an outfit that's both stylish and functional. Accessorising can add personality to your clothes and make them look more attractive.


You can pair your shoes with bracelets, bangles, or a watch to complete the look. Your outfit will look better if you add a Wildfire clutch, scarf, or sunglasses.


However, remember that less is more, so you won't take away from the elegance of the heels. Lastly, consider the occasion you're attending. Formal events call for a simpler look, while casual events can have more fun and playful accessories.


5. Have Fun with It


Fashion is about expressing yourself and having fun; heels are the best way to elevate your look and make a statement. When you experiment with different looks and take fashion risks, you express your individuality and create a unique outfit! 


Play with colours! Experiment with different shades! Go for neutral or bold, depending on your mood. 


The 14 shades available with Wildfire heels allow you to play around with different colours and find the perfect one to elevate your outfit. For those who like to keep it classic, shades like black, natural, tan, white, and brown are perfect for creating a sleek and sophisticated look. 


If you want to make a statement, try experimenting with more unique shades like blue, clear, gold, green, natural, orange, pink, purple, and silver. These can add a pop of colour to your outfit!


Tips on Walking in Heels Confidently


Walking in heels confidently can take some practise, but with the proper patience and dedication, you'll be walking like a pro in no time. Here are a few tips to help you:


  1. Break them in: Take the time to break in your heels before wearing them in public. Wear them around the house for a few hours, increasing the daily duration until you feel comfortable. They can cause blisters, and too-small heels can be uncomfortable. Get your measurements in the late afternoon to get them at their largest size.

  2. Practise your posture: Good posture is vital when walking in heels. Stand up straight, engage your core, and keep your shoulders back to help you walk taller and more confidently.

  3. Take small steps: When walking in heels, take small, controlled steps to maintain your balance and prevent your heel from catching on the ground.

  4. Keep your weight on the balls of your feet. Heels will shift your weight forward onto the balls of your feet. When walking, focus on keeping your weight on the balls of your feet and not on the heel of the shoe, so it will be easier to walk and you'll feel more comfortable.

  5. Walk on different surfaces: Practise walking on cobblestones, gravel, wood, linoleum, carpet, or even grass so you can get a feel and adjust before the event.
