Kitten heels. Once the most ridiculed shoe style in the world, they had their hey-day in the early 00s as the footwear of choice for celebs like Paris Hilton and Cameron Diaz. But they’re back, baby. Yes, really – say what you will about the style, the shoes have been all over the feet of the fashion set for over a year now, and they’ve finally hit mainstream.

The modern kitten heel looks a lot like it’s old school version – although these days it’s not always a fine heel, there are plenty of block versions for those who struggle with even the lowest of stilettos. Team yours with everything from flares to silk slip skirts.
