Would You Wear? Kitten Heels

Kitten heels have been back in style for awhile now but I think some people still feel a little perplexed by them.  Kitten heels are low and comfortable, and therefore, seen as unstylish–but that’s just the 2005 – 2012, the sky-high heel era, whispering in our ear.  Lower heels are sexy and give you just enough lift to make those legs sing AND allow you to walk comfortably all day.  And how do you wear these magical heels?  With anything.  I personally prefer the daintier kitten heels with a great straight leg or distressed denim.  They also look amazing with cropped, wide-leg trousers.  Are you a yay or nay on kitten heels?

how to wear kitten heels

Botkier mules – Chic mules with a walkable heel..wear with white culottes!

Loeffler Randall mules – This pair has a Balenciaga vibe–and you could wear them with just about any denim.

Schutz heels – How cute would these be with a midi skirt?  Sometimes denim shoes can be “eh” but the lower heel keeps these chic.

Sam Edelman slingbacks -These look so much more expensive than they are.  They look great from the office with slim trousers to a weekend out in your Levi’s.

M Gemi bow heels (not pictured) – Looks just like The Row at 1/3 of the price.  They’re in my cart.

Sam Edelman mules – Another great pair of mules in a hot pink hue (and a great price!).

Calvin Klein sandals – These are also in my cart.  Don’t they look straight out of Sex & the City season 1?!  I mean that in the best way…don’t be scared.



  1. I’m barely 5’2″ so I feel like I need at least a 3 inch heel! These days my knees might be telling me to try the kitten heel though….

    • Honestly I was all about the sky high heels and then I had kids. I have a tough time going over 3 inches these days but I will for a beautiful shoe 😉 . Give them a whirl!

  2. I’m almost 6ft tall and of a solid, athletic build (about a US12). When I wear kitten heels – no matter how stylishly – they just look overwhelmed by my frame. It’s as if they’re just begging to die down there. I think they look great on a more average figure!
