First of all, what the heck is a stiletto? You may be reading this and thinking why the hell should I want to know how to wear a stiletto. The definition of a stiletto is thin or spiked-heel as little as 0.9 inches in circumference and can be any height. That is also interesting because I always thought of stilettos as anything 6 inches or higher.
According to Popular Science, the rise of stilettos goes back to the 1950s. I find that to be odd because heels or the wearing of heels seem to go back farther than that. The reason being was because of men according to Popular Science.
Popular Science mentions that heels were originally worn by men only. So men wearing heels should not be something that is so Taboo, because it started with them.
In the 1950s when women started wearing heels, they wore the pointier version and then men wore the thicker heels. Men eventually dropped heels altogether and the stilettos continued to evolve for women. Fast forward to now, stilettos are seen as a way to lux up a look. The higher the better for some.
I personally love a woman who can walk in a stiletto pump. If she can dance in them it’s even better. Walking and dancing in high stilettos is a talent, trust me, I know, lol.
So now that we know exactly what a stiletto is and also a little background on it, we can get to the fun stuff!
