Tan or neutral-colored heels will make your legs look longer. Plus, they are super-cute year-round.

It takes work and regular maintenance to achieve the silky smooth legs of our dreams. There is no single quick fix. Exercise is still the best way to tone and firm legs inside and out. Luckily, there are a few simple ways to optimize shaving and pave the way for glowing, bump-free skin.
1. Exfoliate regularly. Buffing away dull surface cells keeps your skin fresh and naturally moisturized.
2. Use a razor with multiple blades and built-in moisture strips. It will give you a quicker, closer shave and minimize nicks.
3. Sarah Dakar, of Sonya Dakar Skincare, recommends shaving at night rather than in the morning, when skin tends to be less puffy. Gently pat-dry with a towel (don’t rub) and follow up with body oil while skin is still damp to really lock in moisture. Products with hair growth inhibitors are also a great way to minimize the need for shaving.
