Heels are back! At least that’s what the street style stars of Paris Fashion Week have demonstrated as they strutted around the Tuileries last week. And we can’t say that we blame them; after a year-and-a-half of dressing down, it feels pretty damn good to dress up again with a bit of altitude-offering heels.
While we’ve certainly mastered the 10+ ways of wearing the Adidas Samba, nothing compares to how sexy a sky-high stiletto makes you feel. We’re not suggesting you have to go all the way just yet-maybe you ease in with a wedge or a block heel, then move your way into a kitten heel before making your grand entrance in a 6-inch stiletto. We’re just saying, if you’ve missed high heels this year, now’s the time time to dust them off and bring them out again.
Below, here are seven ways how to wear them.
If you’re not quite ready for a stiletto yet, ease in with Maryam Nassir Zadeh’s Olympia wedges-an eternal It Girl favorite.
A kitten heel is a perfect foray back into heels; stay low to the ground with a style that blends sport and glamour.
Add a ladylike mule with a pop of color to counteract that cool girl vibe you have going on top.
You can always keep it cute with a sweet Mary Jane to soften up an edgy look.
It’s been a while since we’ve rocked a classic stiletto pump, but we say go for it.
If you’re not quite committed to color, let your white embellished pump do the talking.
It’s time to go all out with an Amina Muaddi showstopper. Pair them with a short skirt to ensure they get the attention they deserve.
