11 Stylish Looks That Prove Kitten-Heels Are Not Just For Doñas

No, this is not an article about cats. If I’m being 100% honest with my readers, I’m TERRIFIED of those creatures. Luckily for me, I’m not on a mission to show you the cutest cats but instead the endless styles for kitten-heels. Hopefully you’re not looking around nervously wondering what “kitten-heels” mean but just in case you are—kitten-heels are shoes with a small slender heel, typically between 1 and 2 inches in height. You’ve probably seen all the doñas wearing them but never thought to grab a pair for yourself.

Well, if you’re anything like me, you strive to stay on top of today’s hottest trends. Although sometimes bold, I try to play around with each new “trend” and make it my own. This was a trend that I found particularly difficult. I’ve seen them for decades in my mom’s closet (and made fun of her for them too!). But they’ve made a comeback these past couple of months and owning a pair is a must. I started off slow with some kitten heel booties and recently worked my way up to slingbacks. It’s a process believe it or not, especially if you’re not a huge fashion risk-taker.

That being said, I have a lot to thank Instagram for. The app serves as my endless #moodboard and source of #inspo. I sit on the train and scroll for hours (or as long as my cellular service permits) to find inspiration on how to style certain trends, kitten heels being no different. Using IG, I’ve put together a couple of my favorite fits that should spark some inspiration in you to go grab your own pair!


You can easily dress them up.
