As a self-professed member of the sneakers-only club, I'm willing to share a little secret. I love the way heels look. Although it takes some convincing to get me out of the house, it takes even more persuasion to get me out in heels. I'm a "comfort over everything" type of person, but sometimes, if the shoe fits, I'll wear it—literally.

While Who What Wear editors love their tried-and-true trendy heels and platforms, some of the best picks aren't nearly as expensive as they look. Case in point: these under-$100 heels that I've vowed to break my "no stilettos during the week" rule for. From trendy metallics to runway-inspired silhouettes, these 32 finds are anything but unattainable. Shop the best affordable heels below.
