If you aren’t naturally blessed with long legs and are shopping for summer, don’t stress. There are no limitations to what all of Us can wear, but when it comes to sandals, we do have a few tips and tricks if elongating your legs is the goal.
Shoes that lack straps around the ankles are always a solid detail to look out for, but if you do want that extra support, make sure you gravitate toward thinner straps that don’t cut off the leg. Taller heels will always make legs look longer, but if you’re not comfortable with height, there are plenty of ways to nail that supermodel aesthetic. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up a slew of sandals below that will surely be of assistance — read on for more!
These Chunky Platforms
Shoes with chunkier elements like this pair can immediately give your leg a slimmer appearance and make them look longer! We also adore this plush mule style — it’s beyond trendy.
These Pointed Toe Sandals
Though these sandals have a lower heel, the pointed toe is a great way to elongate your silhouette! The thinner straps around the ankles can be criss-crossed up the leg to further emphasize that effect.
These Super Strappy Heels
Nude is an excellent shade to shop for if you want to make legs look longer, and these thin straps add the cherry on top! These heels are intricate yet simple at the same time, which makes them increddibly versatile for both daytime and dressier evening ensembles.
These Sleek Leather Mules
This shoe is another A+ example of an elongating sandal that doesn’t have too high of a heel. The thicker strap over the toe is curved in the right spot and just thick enough to give you support. The leg is extended — without the discomfort!
These Clear Wedges
A clear shoe, even when it has a tint, can make legs look longer thanks to the translucent element! The straps don’t cut off the legs, and these are an easy way to incorporate something different into your wardrobe.
These Espadrille Platforms
An espadrille is a classic summertime shoe, and we’re completely obsessed with this platform version! Again, the nude hue does have leg-elongating abilities, and the slide style sans ankle straps helps further that look.
These Statement Platforms
If you want to get into the mega platform trend, we can’t think of a better shoe to try! The five-inch height of the heel along will elongate your legs, but the thick platform actually brings the heel height down to three inches — making them more manageable.
