Ami Patel: How to up your sneaker game & why kaftans work
Ditch those stilettos and embrace your comfy, sexy sneakers; and knee-length kaftans that work for even those who are 4 feet zilch
I don’t wear stilettos as a matter of principle. (Why should women?) Give me ideas to look more sexy, less sporty with sneakers.

Sneakers are an extremely versatile piece of footwear that can instantly elevate your appearance! If you enhance your top with a great neckline or a low back, you can still look sexy. Wear sneakers with a slit on your skirt to show off your legs. Pair those sneakers with a short bodycon or bandage dress, and you’ll become the cynosure of every event!
The long and short of it
I’m short: 4 feet zilch. Will I never be able to wear kaftans?
—Aditi Gayatri Fadnavis, Via email
You can wear a kaftan in your size! Opt for shorter versions like knee-length. Some ways to rock kaftans for you are wearing monochromatic kaftans, kaftans with no print, one-shoulder kaftans, accentuate your waistline by wearing a belt! Distract from your height by showing off either a nice deep V-neck or cinching your waist. Adding four or five-inch heels/wedges underneath the kaftans will also help.
