How to wear Kitten Heels

Kitten heels can be associated with our mothers or even grandmothers, so they have an old-fashioned reputation that scares many people away. There is no need to be afraid! This kind of footwear are comfortable and it has an advantage of working and leisure conditions. When you want to be more elegant, wearing a kitten heel is an uncomplicated way to achieve that.

This type of footwear asks for looks that favor it, that is, productions that show your shoes and do not hide its comfort and beauty. Cropped pants, midi skirt, shorts, pantacourts, are a great idea to create a trendy look.

3 tips help you create great looks with kitten heels:

1- Keep everything else simple

A kitten heel, whether a boot or a pump, is a statement shoe. Let them do the talking by keeping everything else minimal (denim is a safe bet).

 

2- When in doubt, opt for conservative hemlines

If a mini-skirt paired with kitten heels makes you feel like trapped in an awkward 2000s throwback, add a high-end edge by wearing knee-length or mid-length skirts instead.

 

3- Don’t be afraid to make a statement

If you’re going to embrace the one of the world’s most polarizing shoe, best go all out and rock a gold metallic style with a baby pink strap, or a Valentino with a destroyed pair of jeans, right? The idea, after all, is to have fun!

When a pair of shoes transforms an outfit

A great pair of shoes can transform an outfit into a look in a matter of seconds! Shoes and bags are statement items, and the same outfit when worn with sandals, would look completely different with a pair of Stan Smiths or a pair of stiletto court shoes.

The way you accessorize an outfit can turn it into a full-on ‘look’, multiplying your wardrobe choices and making the most of your pieces.

This outfit Olivia Palermo wore the other day, for example:

It is a lovely look but, what made it remarkable for me, were the Alexander McQueen Embroidered Slippers! They change the entire vibe of the outfit!

It is something good to have in mind, especially for those “I have got nothing to wear” moments!

Shoe inspiration + star trend

I love that the embroidery trend is still strong and embracing all kind of themes, not only flowers. One of my favourites motifs is the star!  I tend to wear the star trend with casual pieces, like a blouse or embroidered on a sweater, but there is a solution if you want to wear it in a more formal setting: embroidered shoes. They give a pop of fun to any outfit without looking crazy.

Accessories are a great way to keep in touch with the trends and an elegant style at the same time! The heels made by Maison Valentino are a perfect example of how to achieve this balance. And so pretty!
