5 Fashion Hacks To Look Tall in Flats that
Meghan Markle Should Know
It’s no secret – girls love their stylish stilettos.
The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, is no exception either. Remember Her Royal Highness’ penchant for sporting oversized heels to prevent blisters? Recently, eagle-eyed Royal watchers have also observed that Meghan is always in a pair of stilettos regardless of her dress code – even if it is an unceremonious event such as walking on a grass pitch.
The real reason? It turns out the reason for her shoe preference is not just about fashion.

Add a lift to your foot with a slight heel. This gives you a subtle height increase sans the blisters and aching feet that come with wearing high heels.
