Who's Afraid Of The Kitten Heel?

4 months ago

Ok, the kitten heel has been dividing women (and men) for decades. They used to be cool, we suddenly realised they were HIDEOUS, now they're back but where do you stand!? It's controversial, but I'm thinking... they're.... ok...!? Ok, fine they're cool! And these ones in particular are really cool. Agree or Disagree?

Check These...

They're not going to be for everyone but these TIBI metallics are just giving me life. I say, for kitten heels, anything twee or too classic is a no no. Modern, interesting, statement, yes.

I'd keep the rest of this outfit super simple.

With kitten heels, midi length or maxi are much better than short (it's difficult to look flattering in this height heels, let's be honest). I love this midi and would pair it with a crisp white top for that summer sunshine.

A chic AF kitten heel can actually work wonders for an evening look.

Take this beaut black pair with fish-net detailing and pair it with this dress. Modest, yet showing some skin at the shoulder and neckline to balance the heels and length. I love this look.

These are about as classic as I'd go for a kitten heel. Love the woven fabric.

I'd pair either of these simple kitten heels with this look.

I LOVE the jeans. The length is the perfect length for a kitten heel, wide-leg or flares work best and cropped at the ankle. I love this shirt which would create a really relaxed vibe with the jeans and then throw over this Isabel Marant fringed bag.

I'm not sure I'm allowed to call these kitten heels?

Some would say they're not because they have a block heel, but the height is defiantly merging into kitten territory. Either way, I'm loving them. They have an almost 70's vibe, which I'm feeling and they would style so well with the above denim.

It's definitely a tricky one!

I would never try to sway your opinion. However, hopefully you're feeling as confused as me now. You know you didnt used to like them, but there's something about that kitten heel that's pulling us all in!
