Our Big, Beautiful Guide to the Strappy Heel Trend

As a "strappy heels girl” myself, you can’t imagine my delight to see what has historically been a pretty classic shoe style get reinvented into quite a few new and trendy iterations for the season at hand. Whether it’s Céline’s ultra-forward cage style or Tibi’s more casual, everyday take, there’s a lot to not only love about the trend, but plenty to know as well. As such, I’ve taken it upon myself to bring you today’s Big Beautiful Guide to Strappy Heels.

That’s right—we curated our favorites from the runway as well as sharing more standout styles to shop at a range of price points. So whether or not you’re also a strappy heels girl, you’ll want to continue scrolling because I might just convert you.

Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
