I'm Easing Myself Into Wearing Heels Again—20 Pairs I'm Starting With



If I'm going to be honest here, it's been a minute since I've even thought about wearing heels let alone wear them. But as the summer of reemergence approaches with events throughout the calendar, I'm ready to add a few to my wardrobe rotation. I'm not ready for stilettos quite yet (I'm looking at you, Amina Muaddi), but I'm settling on easy slip-on mules, strappy sandals, and platforms galore. They may not make me look six feet tall, but they'll add just the right amount of height needed to bring my outfit to the next level.

As I plan for going out again, I've found myself heel shopping a little too often lately. Can you blame me? The summer mood has set in. Anyways, I thought I'd share my finds just in case you're also not a heels person looking to buy a pair. Keep scrolling to shop my picks.
