Kitten-ism

1 Sep

As the waist line is lowering, so too are heel heights. We never thought this day would come. After a continual rise to unbelievably daring heights, even to the point of eliminating the actual heel altogether (think Victoria Beckham in her heel-less “standing shoe”), the fashion world has decided to finally give our little piggies a well-deserved break. This Valentino sandal still finds a way to rock his famous bow. The kitten heel is officially the new platform stiletto. How posh.

What this means for us: Embrace it for every moment it lasts. Before you know it, heel heights will be on the rise again. The most common form is the pointed toe stiletto pump. This is super-refined, sophisticated, and elegant. If that’s what you’re going for, perfect. This trend comes of course from the recurring Mad Men them e of dressing, adopting the styles of the 60s with a longer hemline and more conservative styles. If you want to be a little funkier, try it in a bootie or a fun sandal. They can be really cute. Here are a couple of my favorites from missselfridge.com and J. Renee:
