The only thing that makes you awkward in heels is if you don’t have the confidence to wear them. If you feel comfortable, you will look comfortable and thus attractive and great. Being called a “giant” isn’t a bad thing; it means you stand out. Now you just have to own it.

I’m 5’7" too, and I used to feel like like I was too tall to wear heels. But who really cares what someone said in 10th grade? Who really cares what anyone thinks, apart from you? I don’t think there is a “too tall” for heels. I don’t think Karlie Kloss cares!

ehh, sometimes I know how you feel. I’m 5’8 but I love heels too much not to wear them, so I just shut those silly thoughts off, put my amazingly beautiful heels on and feel fantasic ;)

Im also 5’7.(I do not consider myself tall actually) And I will rock my 3.9-5.1 inches heels when I feel like it! I don’t care if I might become taller than a lot of people.(I actually quite like noticing how short many men are when I put on a pair of heels haha. And I do love my men tall. So when going out Im always wearing heels, am I the only single woman who feels this way? hehe).
As AgitaV said – I want to wear my beautiful heels and feel great. I do not wear heels everyday though. But if Im going out – you’ll never find a pair of flats on my feet.

SUP SAME HEIGHT LADIES! I’m also at 5’7! I wear 5 inch shoes a lot of the time, like today. It really makes no difference. Sure you’re taller walking around but no one really cares, seriously. They don’t. And if they say something it’s likely that they want your shoes or they’re extremely obnoxious and unkind (like most highschool kids are).
I’m in university btw. I’d say about 50% of the girls I see in class wear some sort of heel.
I agree with naunet!

Also! You’re in highschool = freedom for self-expression, especially fashion. I’d say give heels a try again. Wear ’em like you would any other shoe.

I’m 5’11ish so I know how you feel. It’s hard finding nice heels because I can’t wear platforms, but there aren’t that many nice heels that are low.

You are definitely not too tall to wear heels though! You probably will get noticed more, but that’s a good thing, models are tall!

You have to wear what you feel comfortable and cute in…and don’t let other people dictate what that is. Besides, maybe she didn’t mean it so much as an insult- maybe it just came out wrong and she actually meant it more like “you’re an amazon!”

Girl. Are you seriously going to let someone control what you wear? I think tall women that wear heels look elegant and/or fierce. I would love to be tall, I am only 5"1!

Girl, I know exactly how you feel! I used to feel the same way when I was younger. I’m 5’8" so I’m already pretty tall and most of my heels are 4 inches….so that would make me 6 feet tall with them on!!

You’re never too tall to wear heels. I absolutely love them and I could care less when people say I look like a “giant”, or even better, “Amazon woman.” Even when I dated a guy who was shorter than me I was like, “Listen, I’m not giving up my heels for anyone. So you better not mind me looking taller than you!” haha

Be proud of your height! Most people would love to be taller :)
