You Said: No to Cuffed Sandals

July 11th, 2010


reese-sandals_071110We asked: Would you wear Cuffed Sandals?

You said:  No to Cuffed Sandals, with a 66% to 34% vote.

Style tip? This season’s sandals feature a new twist - a cuff that wraps around your ankle.  While the cuff is primarily for decorative effect, it’s also a useful feature to keep the shoes securely on when you’re out and about.  But while the cuff adds to the dramatic effect of these sandals, it also visually cuts your leg at the ankle, making your legs (and therefore, you) look shorter.  This leg shortening effect is particularly powerful with sandals that feature wide cuffs.  If you’re not blessed with the longest legs, we’d recommend trying a sandal with a thinner cuff to offset this effect. 

Next question: Blousy shorts provide a nice counterpart to tight tops, but they can also be difficult to wear, especially for pear shaped women.  But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear blousy shorts?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    When I was thinking of cuffed sandals, I thought more of the kind I keep seeing that have a big cuff of fabric above the ankle and then a few straps on the feet – like an ankle boot and a flip flop combined. Those are pretty cheesy but the ones pictured here are cute. I think they’re just more of a srappy sandal. I know it’s not a huge deal but I think it would be helpful if there was a picture of the weekly thing to vote on before the voting takes place so people know what they’re voting on. Just my two cents!

    I agree with Becca– I pictured something completely different and voted ‘no,’ while I actually have and love a pair of sandals very similar to what’s pictured.
