After fashion month, it's pretty much commonplace that everything floating around the style side of Instagram and TikTok is dangerously pretty. From handbags to jewelry items to dresses, the content that came out of September's shows and street style is designed to tantalize and make you want to buy things. It's as simple as that. One thing that no fashion person I've met is capable of resisting at the moment is a pair of kitten-heel pumps à la Prada (yes, I'm talking about the Bunny Floras), The Row, and more.
If you somehow haven't noticed them yet, go back through a few of your favorite fashion people's Instagram feeds from the last—I don't know—three months. I guarantee you'll spot at least one pair of one-inch-tall pumps of some form, whether it's a super-classic pair like the ones women in the '50s and '60s wore with circle skirts and matching opera coats (or was that only in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel?) or modern slingbacks with various embellishments, like tiny crystals, bite-size buckles, and toe rings. Whatever you find, I already know it'll be gorgeous and impossible to avoid buying. That's practically a given when it comes to this trend.

The key to dressing up a very casual outfit is adding a sleek handbag, big earrings, and kitten-heel pumps.
It's true—Kendall Jenner and her kitten heels in Paris fully influenced me.
Apologies for the dramatics, but the fact that I didn't secure a pair of these The Row pumps when they were in stock will haunt me for the rest of my life.
I've never wanted to copy and paste a groutfit more than I do this one thanks in large part to the gray Prada pumps Eva Chen's wearing here.
I swear all of the fashion people—whether they're in Paris, NYC, L.A., or London—are wearing kitten heels this fall.
Our editorial director Lauren bought these in Milan, and I've been living in a state of constant jealousy ever since.
Nothing says fall night out like a pair of sheer tights and pointed-toe pumps. Add a floor-sweeping wool coat and you've hit the fashion trifecta.
