Our society has quickly pivoted from heels to flats. While the years circling 2016 revolved around sky-high Louboutin heels, 2024 has been all about comfort first. It may be the years we spent at home or a shift toward a more practical lifestyle, but it’s been hard for me to give up on all the amazing high heels I own. So, I slip into kitten heels over and over again because I feel like they’re the perfect in-between.
Besides their practicality, I love kitten heels because of how flattering they are. The slight lift that they give your legs will make them look way longer than they are. I’ve counted on them time and time again to give me that "Barbie” moment. Below, find the 29 styles that currently have my heart.
These shoes are the perfect conversation starter.
Sierra Mayhew was always destined to work in fashion, but she didn't know it at first. Growing up with no choice but to wear a rotation of school uniforms and activewear, her love for fashion really blossomed when she moved away for college and was able to finally define her very own personal style. Shortly thereafter, she interned at Elle magazine and instantly knew that editorial was for her. After graduating from the University of Notre Dame, she worked for ShopBazaar, contributing regularly to Bazaar.com, and finally made her way to Who What Wear, where she is an associate editor. When she’s not working, you can catch her always trying to catch a flight, rollerblading through New York City traffic, or exploring the latest luxury vintage boutique.
