They were a closet-staple in the 90s, we watched Carrie Bradshaw prance across the bustling streets of Manhattan in them, and are now here to make an epic comeback.
Now served with an edgy twist of today’s laid-back athleisure vibe, kitten heels no longer need to be set aside for your fancy events only. They have never been so casual, and ultimately have never looked this cool.
Wear them with your favorite silk robe on Sunday mornings when you’re sipping your coffee. Pair them with your favorite faded denim trousers and a white button down, or be wear them with slouchy athletic pants the next time you grocery shop.
Kitten heels have commanded our attention in the form of delicate silk straps, leather mules, crocodile slides and cool patent leather ankle booties, and we are listening, loud and clear!
