Wide ankle strap shoes are a big turn off to some ladies, but there is a way to wear them without the fashion police cuffing you and throwing you into the fashion hall of shame. The wider the strap the more attention goes to the ankles. Buy a shoe with a medium width ankle strap instead of an extra heavy one. Pair the shoes with skirts or dresses that are narrow at the bottom instead of flared or tiered, such as a pencil skirt. A wider hemline can make legs seem chunky even when their not and if worn with a really wide ankle strap shoe, well, just plan on not impressing anyone. It’s true we sometimes try our hardest to look good, but we all know the look when it’s over done. So keep your ankle strap on the medium side and your hemline on the sleek and slim side and you’ll be strutting the latest trend making heads turn.
