How To Style Kitten Heels

Kitten heels have always been associated with an older and mature generation of women who have seemingly retired their stiletto-heel obsession. Although, when designer Valentino Garavani unveiled the Rockstud kitten-heel just a few years ago, women of all ages had fallen head over heels for this trend.

Styling the kitten heel trend doesn’t have to be confusing – they are a trans-seasonal piece which look great paired with jeans, skirts or evening dresses. Kitten heels usually boast a short heel which is 3.5cm or shorter, depending on the shoe.

Casual

Taking inspiration from Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt, who always looks fabulous in kitten heels and a pair of jeans or trousers. This look mixes together high and low style which is ultimately easy to recreate at home. It is however, important to start off with a flattering pair of jeans since this acts as the foundation of the entire outfit.

Business-chic

Wear your kitten heels to the office and feel comfortable and stylish at the same time. Even momager, Kris Jenner nails this look by keeping to a sophisticated colour trend, and cuts which flatter her figure. If you want to make a large investment in these heels, choose a style and colour which will outlive any temporary trends. Wear with a pencil skirt, blouse and blazer for a simple look – perfect for the office.

Dinner

Going on a dinner-date and not quite ready to break out the 6-inch stilettos? Channel the Olsen twins by wearing a pair of cropped trousers, oversized coat and kitten heels for a comfy look which still is appropriate for the occasion. Also, an oversized leather clutch-bag is absolutely necessary to complete the look!

Late drinks

Wear an eccentric pair of kitten heels with a monochrome outfit for a fun pop of colour. The kitten heels will no-doubt be the central focus of the entire outfit, so try to keep other accessories and clothes on the down-low. Stylist Geraldine Saglio regularly creates monochromatic outfits which still scream trendy – of course without trying too hard!
