It’s time to give our heels a break and embrace something more practical, but that doesn’t mean we’re sacrificing style. This season’s hottest shoe trend, the kitten heel, is just as chic as any high heel, if not more so. Fashion girls worldwide are embracing kitten heels, making them a must-have style. However, styling them can be a challenge, especially for those new to the kitten heel game, as they can sometimes appear too old-fashioned.

With the right styling, kitten heels can be the perfect balance of comfort and style, making them a wardrobe essential for the spring and summer.

Kitten heels embody a timeless, Parisian aesthetic that is worth embracing this season, and what better way to do so than with tweed? Whether it’s a tweed jacket and trousers or a tweed skirt and blouse, this fabric pairs beautifully with these 1-inch heels. The refined texture of tweed, coupled with the playful elegance of a kitten heel, creates an effortlessly chic outfit that pays homage to the old money aesthetic.

Baggy Jeans

The beauty of the kitten heel lies in its versatility – it’s much easier to dress down than other types of heels. One of my favorite outfits this season has been a casual jeans ensemble. I love wearing a pair with a looser silhouette and wider leg, styled with a simple yet elevated top, such as a tee and button-down or an asymmetrical tank. Since many of these relaxed bottoms have longer hems, wearing them with kitten heels for a bit of added height is like a match made in heaven.

As mentioned before, kitten heels have a refined, classic sense of style. Thus, there’s no need to overthink when deciding what to wear with them. Look to classic wardrobe staples, such as an LBD, to effortlessly complement your kitten heels. Whether it’s a blazer dress suitable for the workplace or a cotton mini dress with a cottagecore flair, you simply cannot go wrong with this a little black dress to do the trick.


One of the most trend-savvy ways to style your favorite pair of kitten heels is by wearing them with socks. While this look may not be for everyone, when worn with confidence, it can be absolutely groundbreaking. For a subtle approach, choose a neutral pair in grey or black. However, if you want your socks and kitten heels duo to be the centerpiece of your ensemble, swap them for a trendy red pair.

Mini Skirt

With spring weather here, you’re probably already embracing shorter hemlines. This season, I’m excitedly planning all the ways I can style my collection of mini skirts with kitten heels. The shorter hemline allows your shoes to take the spotlight, making them a key focus of your outfit. Consider choosing a colorful or patterned pair of kitten heels to add a pop of excitement to your outfit, or stick to classic neutrals for a more understated elegance.
