Chunky heels are worn best with shorter hemlines.  Due to the fact that the shoe is clunkier the more skin shown gives the shoe a better chance!
Balance the chunky heel with shorter skater skirts.  The fullness of the skirt make the outfit playful.  The chunky heel is really cool with a playful outfit.
Chunky heels go great with slim fitting pencil skirts, it gives the look a vintage feel and it allows the shoes to stand out. Simmer and shorter pieces work best with a chunky heel.
