5 Ideal Occasions to Wear “Stilettos”
Surely if you are reading this article, it’s because you have more than one pair of stilettos in your closet. There are no shoes that stylize the figure more and add more glamour, to a womans look, than a pointed toe high heel.
The origin of the high heels will surprise most of you, because although heels have been used by both men and women since the ancient Egypt days (especially by men up through the Renaissance era), and the first known woman to wear them was Catherine de Medici in the 16th century for her wedding day. It was Giacomo Pirandello, Baron of Stiletto, who in 1760, invented the needle heel to make it easier for riders to ride horse and improve their support with spurs.
Today’s stiletto is defined as a fine toed, thin high heel shoe that has become an ICON of elegance since the 1950’s.
At Paco Gil, we have adapted the “stiletto” to various heel heights, to give you a sophisticated look for any occasion, depending on your tastes and needs.
Always comfortable, because with our unique lasts, toe shapes and quality materials we try to make you feel that your Paco Gil shoe is part of you.
Today we want to review with you, what we consider to be, the five ideal occasions to wear fine heels that should make you feel that you can achieve anything you set your mind on. Your stilettos will make you stand out of the crowd.
1.- An Important business meeting in the office
Heels are perfect office dress code.
Could be… before a presentation of results to the board of directors, or a presentation of a new company sales strategy or a meeting with a new business partner… etc., where you want to feel safe and powerful, your choice of heels is a plus.
A pump is always a great option as it subtlety makes you stand out.
Depending on the formality of the meeting, your chosen look and your personal tastes, we recommend that you wear a pump, choosing a height, a material, and a color and/ or print that corresponds to your outfit and empowers you.
2.- Lunching with friends.
Without a doubt it’s one of the best moments of the week. Getting together with friends where you let your “hair down” by talking openly, laughing out loud and recharging your batteries.
Simple looks combining high heels with jeans and American blazer. It’s those moments where you are 100% yourself and your stilettos are just another part of you.
3.- Weddings, Baptisms and Communions
The quintessential occasions to dress in high heels are often grand celebrations and the best time for you to shine. We recommend that you choose styles “with a personality”, that match yours.
Pumps with an identity will complement your look. These celebrations, where we get together with family and friends are moments of joy and encounter. It’s a great time, to show off and let your stilettos be the main attraction.
4.-On Friday “Lets Go for Drinks”
The work week ends and it is the perfect time to “unplug”. A great way to do it is going out for a drink with friends or as a couple, and no better way to do it, than to put on those pumps that make you unique.
5.- Alumni dinner
Social networks and applications such as Facebook and WhatsApp have brought the resurgence of “hangouts“ with former classmates, from the school or university days. These are occasions where maybe years ago you had no contact with some of the attendees but they are special moments, reunions and anecdotes.
After so many years, it’s a great time to presume… so complete your look with a fine heeled shoe and be eager to have fun.
Last but not least… there’s still a thing called sex appeal.
If this short list of occasions did not totally convince you to go out and buy a pair of heels, here you have some simple and “tried and true” reasons for wearing stilettos.
It’s a well-known fact, that high heels give a different sensual sway to your hips, make your walk more attractive, and makes you appear more feminine.
Heels attract more attention.
So if you are looking to meet that special someone, or just want to put that “gleam” back into your partner’s eyes, a pair of stilettos certainly won’t hurt but can definitely help the cause.
In ending, since Paco Gil also designs and produces other type footwear, we certainly appreciate that ballerinas, sneakers and booties are part of today’s dress culture and lifestyle.
But the HIGH heel is a “must have” item and should be a mainstay in every woman’s wardrobe season after season.
At Paco Gil we know it and for this reason we design and incorporate unique heels with each new collection. We create them for a strong, determined and self-actualized woman, with the clear idea… that this woman is you.
