Pageant girls have a secret. In addition to learning such crucial life skills as applying liquid liner in a moving car, creating cleavage with surgical tape, and using “butt glue,” pageant competitors know the power of nude pumps.

Nude pumps trick the eye and instantly lengthen legs, which is why those pageant gals wear them in the swimsuit competition. They make you look taller and really, who couldn’t use a few more inches? Plus, they provide an graceful foil for almost every spring outfit, particularly the elegant pastels so popular this year.

Luckily, you don’t need to be Miss America to use nude pumps to your advantage. This Spring you can find nude pumps everywhere from Manolo Blahnik to Payless Shoe Source. Here are my top picks to help you add the finishing touch to the perfect Spring ensemble.
