Kitten heels, also called half stiletto, are slowly, but surely coming back. They provoke quite a lot of violent and conflicting reactions and opinions, but like a true kitten, they managed to sneak into the streets of fashion capitals and the wardrobes of many fashion bloggers. Equal to silver and white boots, kitten heels are going through their catharsis and stand proudly behind the idea of comfort. There is something infinitely sexy about them, regardless of the fact that they do not raise our legs to the skies. They are perfect for skinny jeans with an oversized blazer, as well as for a myriad of other combinations.
The good thing about these heels, which are sometimes disregarded because of their indistinct height, is the comfort. They are the perfect combination between the intransient sneaker and the stiletto, which we are always telling ourselves that we are going to wear, but we never find the courage or strength to put on in the morning. If you want to look elegant and at the same time not have that incomparable desire to take off your shoes in the middle of the street (because high heels are really able to give you a nervous breakdown), kitten heels are just right for you. They appeared in the outfits by Prada, Loewe, Gucci and Vetments and they successfully managed to mute all the negative comments. Yes, they bring about a retro feel, but in the most elegant way imaginable. And they are so, so French! We are going to divulge a secret to you – they perfectly match short see-through polka-dot socks.
