And while she names a block heel as the most complementary for ladies with larger calf muscles (Rach swears by stacked heels for stability!) and a stiletto for ladies with more slender legs (when it comes to practicality, Rach just can’t get on board with these), there is one kind of heel that Karen calls universally flattering.

The wedge!

Not only do they have a way of complementing legs of all shapes and sizes, but they’re pretty darn comfortable, too (as far as heels go, at least)!
