What you want to do is:

  • Gently roll your shoulders back. (This alone will automatically elongate your body, make it more shapely)
  • Rotate your hips slightly back as well
  • Activate your core muscles
  • Start with small steps.
  • Always place one foot in front of the other, heel to toe.
  • When walking down the stairs, take your time and use the handrail

Ultimately, when you find that perfect pair of high heel shoes, the only thing you need to do is practice, practice, practice.

What to avoid:

  • Placing your weight directly onto the heel (as you would do when walking in flats)
  • Locking your knees
  • Bending your shoulders too forward or too backwards
