The Heels Celebrities Under 5'4" Love to Wear

For as long as we can remember (or as long as we've been enamored with fashion, rather), we've turned to other women for style ideas. Whether they're actresses, musicians, writers, or the ilk, there is something wonderfully collaborative about the notion of drawing inspiration from another woman, which is why if they happen to share a similar attribute with you—like having a petite stature—it can prove even more useful.

Today we're shining the spotlight on some of our favorite celebrities who are 5'4" and under to show which heels they're reaching for right now. From weekend ensembles that are perfect for running around all day in to red carpet appearances you can re-create for your next night out, the celeb looks below are sure to make you and your shoe closet very happy.

Technically Moretz is 5'4" on the dot, but we're taking a cue from her anyway. She teamed a ruffled pink blouse with a fire engine–red fluted skirt and accessorized with strappy sandals.

These Phoebe Philo–era heeled snakeskin boots are the trend worth investing in. Olsen wore hers with an oversize black coat while out at the WSJ Innovator Awards.
