Meet V-Neck Shoes: The Most Slimming Style for Any Legs, Anywhere

With both leg- and ankle-slimming qualities, plus a big stamp of street style approval, is it any wonder we're practically jumping up and down with joy for (and in) the V-neck shoe? 

The addition of this simple silhouette detail to courts, sandals and slingbacks alike does wonders for lengthening legs—even when the heel height is turned down to low or mid—as it leads the eye to the end of your feet and extends the appearance of your ankles. Every hemline suits them: Your V-neck shoes will go just as nicely with cropped and frayed jeans as they will with a miniskirt. And as a bonus, they've got a whiff of the 1980s about them (especially the zebra print from Céline—still a popular street style choice from a few seasons back).

So don't stand around, and click through our gallery below to see girls wearing them and to shop the best available now.

Style Notes: V-neck flats are also a clever way to make a midi more flattering. See how Pernille Teisbaek tops and tails her knotted statement skirt with long black lines?
