Kitten Heels, I Think This Is the Beginning of a Beautiful Friendship

When I was in my early 20s, I wouldn’t dream of owning kitten heels. Why would I choose such a dinky little heel over elongating skyscrapers? Now that I’m a little older, sartorially wiser, and a lot more practical, kitten heels have become my essential shoe of choice for work, running to meetings, and day-to-night activities. Not only do they look chic, but the newest iterations are not your grandma’s kitten heels.

In fact, mini heels were seen all over the S/S 18 runways with designers like Bottega Veneta and Marni giving them a major makeover with prints, texture, and embellishment. And if you’re a minimalist at heart, there are plenty of simple yet sophisticated options that look just as great with jeans as they do with a midi skirt or dress. It’s time to start a very beautiful friendship with these chic (and comfortable!) kitten heels below.
