Shop Your Shape: Sandals

1/6 Piperlime
ABOVE SIZE 10
Shoe size in the double digits? Black (and other dark shades) have the same effect below the ankles as above. Another visual shrinker: a substantial vamp (the upper part of the shoe). The less skin that shows, the daintier your feet will appear.

2/6 Bloomingdale's
ABOVE SIZE 10
Ankle-cinching wraparound straps are the enemy--they'll make your legs look stubby. Your BFFs? Slingbacks, slip-on styles like mules, or d'Orsays (the sides of the shoes are cut away, revealing the arches).

3/6 Shopbop
WIDE FEET
Thick straps that fit comfortably across your feet (they shouldn't constrict or pinch) break up the girth. High-coverage sides and shoe styles that angle up toward the ankles help elongate.

 

CoclicoMelania Cork Platform Sandals, $365, shopbop.com

 

4/6 Dolce Vita
LONG TOES
If your five little piggies are accustomed to living on the edge, standard thong sandals only underscore their length. Get the opposite effect with peep-toe styles, toe-ring details, or straps that extend across the toes.

 

Dolce Vita Mosey, $179, dolcevita.com

 

5/6 Charlotte Russe
BELOW SIZE 6
While there's nothing wrong with tiny feet, they can distort your proportions (and look even more Lilliputian if you're tall). Eye-catchers like gemstones, graphic prints, and metallic finishes lend gravitas.

 

Charlotte Russe Studded Ankle-Wrap Flat Sandal, $20, charlotterusse.com

 

6/6 ,
DAINTY ANKLES
Grecian-style sandals show off slender ankles.
