Today's Rant: Ankle Straps

October 17, 2007 by SheFindsJill

Say it isn't so! Black heels are a staple. Any given gal, regardless of style savvy, owns a shoe rack full of these ubiquitous beauties. But ankle straps?

Stylists will tell you that ankle straps "cut off" the leg line, making you appear shorter and stockier. This unflattering feature may keep footwear from dangling in the air mid-waltz, but wouldn't most sacrifice dancing utility for lookin' good? We hope so.

If you have long, lean legs and narrow ankles to match, then you may very well applaud this new trend. But for many of us, any shoe that straps around the ankle will be worn with long, long pants.

Here, Jennifer Garner and Keira Knightley flaunt their gorgeous gambs.

For those who can pull it off, Stuart Weitzman's Charleston shoe is a hot, hot pair.
