Purrfectly Styling the Kitten Heel

Tuesday 12th, November 2013 / 09:09

As you may know, fashion is an endless cycle of different trends coming in and out each season. On the streets, models, bloggers, and style mavens are photographed wearing sky-high heels and sporting amazing designer pieces. But let’s be realistic for a second. Most women of the world cannot be wearing sky-high heels while trying to run for the bus or class and still remain effortlessly amazing (if you can – we salute you!). The troubling thought of choosing between style or comfort can prove to be quite tricky and is something that is faced on the regular by women everywhere. Style and comfort are no longer mutually exclusive. Why not have both? Queue the kitten heel. Over the years the kitten heel has evolved into a versatile staple piece for the stylish woman, and a good pair is definitely worth making the investment into. Whether you work a nine-to-five office job or you’re fancy shoes are strictly reserved for your off-time, there are many styles that can easily be worked into a variety of outfit options and tastes.


Ever want to steal your boyfriend’s wardrobe because it just looks amazingly comfy? We are all guilty of “borrowing” from the boys. Guys tend to aim towards a more relaxed and baggy pieces and well, woman can do just about the same! Taking elements of your guys look will give a relaxed edge to your ultra-femme pieces. Here, we paired some comfy distressed boyfriend jeans from Rag and Bone, a Wilfred Free utility jacket and a pair of Sam Edelman Opal Kitten Heels to bring some fun into the relaxed look. Keep the accessories simple and fuss-free with  an Aldo carry all cross body bag, Ray-Ban aviators and an edgy statement necklace by Hailey Gerritts Designs. Great for running errands, grabbing weekend brunch or simply to add a little competition to your relationship with a “who wore it best” (with this look – you will definitely have our vote!).


Working in a corporate setting, your wardrobe options can get old really fast. Sometimes you need just a little oomph in your step and what better way than to start with your shoes? Kitten heels give the effect, posture, and polish that regular heels do, but with a lot less pain. We picked a basic black kitten heel pump by BCBGeneration, and paired them with a sleek black dress pant by Joe Fresh that sit just at your ankles giving an otherwise drab colour story a touch of sexy that is just appropriate for the office. Introduce some pops of colour and print with this St. Martins animal pullover, Komono Fat Wizard watch, and Joe Fresh Matte Lipstick in Red Neon and slick your hair back in a low pony and some simple festive studs by Wolf Circus. (also pictured Parkers Laptop Bag by Aldo).


Every now and then, a girl needs to get together with her girls and just have fun. It can be dancing the night away or hitting up a fancy restaurant just to catch up. With these moments, we like to dress up and feel simply pretty. Instead of wearing stiletto high heels that you can barely walk in, why don’t you try on a bold gold kitten heel to rock your night away in? Pair these beautiful shoes with a sleek midi skirt from H&M to add some colour to your outfit. Try a modern vibe with this Le Fou by Wilfred halter top to add some elegance to the look. Go light yet bold with your accessories and grab onto a simple white clutch and gold bangle from Forever 21 and some bold brows and you’ll be ready to hit the city with your ladies.
