When it comes to wearing jeans, we all know that virtually any shoe style of choice will do. From sandals to sneakers, a versatile denim staple is one of the simpler pieces to accessorize. But if you're looking for a leg-lengthening effect, then Olivia Palermo's latest ensemble is the perfect style lesson for looking chic and tall while sporting a casual outfit.
Clad in muted green shades and a pair of cropped jeans, Palermo hit the Milan streets this week and reminded us why skin-tone pumps are the shoe style everyone needs in their closet. Palermo proved that no matter what you choose to wear up top, an ankle-exposing pair of cropped jeans and nude pumps is the winning combination to elongate your legs and appear taller. The lower the cut of the shoes, the better since the bare skin will only add to the optical illusion. A neutral-colored pair of pumps is also the perfect balance to embellished, distressed, or wide-leg jeans, and since we already know you'll wear them over and over again, you don't have to feel guilty about splurging on one of the many shades in Christian Louboutin's collection. Just sayin'.
