Donatella Versace was once asked by Vogue what fashion invention she thought was completely unnecessary. Her response was “flat shoes”. As far as she is concerned fashion is about gaining pain from pleasure. Therefore you must always be on your high heels and nothing less. I wonder what she has to say about the return of the kitten heel.
In my opinion you should pick one, high or flat and not in between. The say you have no business being an inch off the ground. By they I mean those who set the ridiculous standards we live by in fashion. Fashion rules are not suggestions darling, they are lifestyle choices.
The Kitten Heel Trend
It’s been here for a while and is still being appreciated from high street to bond street brands. The fashionistas who seek comfort in true style are definitely having a ball with this one. Though I am sceptical, I have to say Christian Dior has such an incredible collection of the kitten heel. Now forget about the heel you see on old ladies, this heel has been tailored to fit the personal style of a 20-year-old and every woman interested in keeping up with the trends in fashion.
Back in the 50’s kitten heels were the high heels. Clearly now, they are far from that. I would recommend a pair of sling back kitten heels or a pair of mule kitten heels. These two individual styles are perfect for summer and can easily transition from one outfit to the next.
You want to go for pretty colors like white, blush, peach, yellow or even floral detail.
Have some fun with this trend! Pair it with tea length dresses, skirts, formal maxi dresses and even a pair of denim. Easy to walk in, flattering and fashion forward.
When it comes to fashion, it is best to take a risk but still play it safe. The Dior and Chanel kitten heels give you a chance to do both. You can opt for more affordable brands like Steve Madden, Kate Spade, Atmosphere and such to see the wide selections they have for you. Pointy toes, open toes or round toes, pick a style and try styling it as well as you can.
It even comes in a sock boot which has been embraced by brands like Balenciaga and Yeezy.
So my question to you is,” Are you feeling the kitten heel or are you like Donatella Versace finding them unnecessary?”
