Kitten Heels Are Back In Vogue

Kitten heels: You either love it or you hate it. The style first emerged in the 1950s, when sophisticated young ladies wore them paired with classic A-line dresses. Once film star and fashion icon Audrey Hepburn started wearing them, they grew in popularity and became the de facto shoe of choice for stylish women of all ages.

The hype has since died down in the decades after, but the kitten heel is now experiencing a resurgence in popularity with celebrities, famous faces and fashion icons – current US First Lady Michelle Obama and Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt included. What this proves: That it can shed its outdated and frumpy image to become an It shoe for the fashion-forward crowd.

We highlight the ones that debuted on the Spring Summer 2017 runway and how streetstyle stars are wearing them out:
