In the world of high fashion, there are times when high heels are going to be just a little too much. Maybe it has something to do with the nature of the occasion, perhaps it is has something to do with how tall you are…but when these occasions are calling, you will want to reach out to the glory of kitten heels.
If you are not familiar with them, kitten heels are short heels with a small curve in them. This makes them perfect for those dinner parties where you want to look your best but don’t want to go as far as heels. It also makes them ideal for women who are taller, so they can get the look and style from heels but not add on the extra inches. Some tall women are fine just where they are, thanks!
Calling on kitten heels does not have to be limited to these situations anymore though. You can now find kitten heels on sandals, which will make a casual look just a little more refined and deliberate.
The truth of it is, since this shoe has become popular, there are many styles that adopt them to make the shoe take on a different characteristic. They are at once simple, yet stylish, so they are perfect for so many different things. They will give you a little lift and add some definition to your calves but they will sometimes be so small you don’t even see them.
It may be true that the world will not live and die by the kitten heels on shoes. But your outfit just might!
