Regardless of your opinion on the kitten heel trend, one thing's for certain: It's back in a big way and has been for quite some time. The low-maintenance, easy-to-wear shoe has slowly but surely replaced sky-high stilettos, and for good reason—the short heel makes them a far more practical (and comfortable) option, but they still dress up a look, just as a classic pump would. If you're not quite convinced that kitten heels deserve a spot in your shoe closet, one look at the below outfits with kitten heels might just seal the deal.
The low-heeled style looks great when paired with a pencil skirt or a pair of jeans—so yes, they're great for work and play. What's more, they're versatile and come in so many different styles, so whether you want sleek black ones or fun embellished pair, you'll have no problem finding a kitten heel to suit your personal taste.
