They were a closet-staple in the 90s, we watched Carrie Bradshaw prance across the bustling streets of Manhattan in them, and they’re here to make an epic comeback with the new decade upon us.
Now served with an edgy twist of today’s laid-back athleisure vibe, kitten heels have *seriously* never looked this cool. Wear them with your favorite silk robe on Sunday mornings when you’re sipping your coffee. Pair them with your favorite pair of distressed denim and a white button down, or be a bold trend-setter and wear them with a pair of slouchy athletic pants. Delicate straps, mules, slides or ankle booties, get with it.
