Kitten heels are the cat’s meow this spring

Kitten heels are the cat's meow for spring 2018

Nothing can replace the glam look of stilletos, but sometimes, when I am on my feet all day, I need a more comfortable alternative. Apparently, I’m not the only one, because designers have flooded the market this season with kitten heels — one of my favorite looks for 2018.

The kitten heel offers the best of both worlds — the leg elongating, dressed-up look of a high heel, but the comfort and wearability of a ballet flat.

Originally introduced in the late 1950s for younger teenaged girls, kitten heels were quickly adopted by women of all ages. A resurgence of the style occurred in the 1980s and thankfully, kitten heels are once again au courant!

Kitten heels, especially the season’s cutest slingbacks, are perfect not only for work, but also for spring events. Paired with everything from a casual romper or jumpsuit, to a simple sheath dress, to a beachy sundress, kitten heels can go from boardroom to BBQ, classroom to casual dinner out.

For outdoor events, those tiny heels can pose a problem, however. But, I recently found a solution. Solemates High Heelers protect heels from sinking into the grass. Simply slip on. The patented design fits on most shoes and won’t cause damage attaching or removing. The flexible material grips securely and gives you increased support at the base of the heel for wobble-free walking on most surfaces. But most importantly, Solemates High Heelers won’t compromise the look of those gorgeous new kitten heels.

Above are some of my top picks for the season in a wide variety of styles and price points.
