While I personally couldn't tell you a thing about heels, for many women in the workplace, what kind of heel is/is not acceptable can be a stressful conundrum. What is too sexy? What is considered "professional"? Who is defining "professional"? Read this fun and insightful post.
Having graduated from the College of Business, we were always taught to not look “sexy” at work, but to look professional as women. Part of this “professional” appearance is the heel size. I gave presentations where the dress code specifically stated “3 in. max heels.”
I as surprised to find that not everyone receives this training going into the work place. Several companies even have policies again high-high-heels.
