Nearly everybody knows that women are obsessed with shoes.

Nearly everybody knows that women are obsessed with shoes.

And because it's summer, it's time for women to show off their beautiful shoes and perfectly pedicured feet. Below are tips on what shoes to choose.

While you won't actually be thinner, certain shoes and accessories will give you a thinner appearance.

Women love heels because they make them look slimmer. The heels don't have to be terribly high, but there's no doubt that if you want to appear slimmer, a bit of a heel will help dramatically.

Pointy shoes also assist in making legs appear longer. If your legs look longer, they will also appear thinner and shoes with pointy toes will help make your legs seem longer. So, even if you think your legs are long enough, if it's a thinner appearance you're after, try a shoe with pointed toes.

If you wear pantyhose or tights, try and match your shoes to them. Matching your shoes to your hose or tights, when wearing a skirt or a dress will help your legs look thinner. If your skirt is also in a matching colour, you'll look thinner from the waist down. Avoid wearing light-coloured pantyhose with dark shoes and a dark skirt.

Opened-toed shoes also do the trick. Shoes with an open toe or high-heeled sandals will give your thighs and calves a slimmer appearance than a closed-toe shoe will.

Try and avoid ankle strap shoes as they do not give the desired result. Shoes with ankle straps will give the appearance of shorter legs and, as discussed above, longer seems thinner whether it is or not so skip the ankle straps if you want your legs to look slimmer.

As much as pumps are comfortable and practical, they are also not a good choice. Instead of pumps, rather wear slingback or backless shoes. If you wear backless or slingback shoes instead of pumps, your legs will look thinner and longer.

Now that you know what shoes to wear this summer, team them up with a beautiful summer dress or skirt.
