Heel Hiatus

Spring is taking a break from height and ushering in the much debated "kitten heel." If you think a 1" lift doesn’t exude a lot of va-va-voom, think again. These little numbers are quite bewitching. Personally, this gives me a great excuse to check in my 4" stilettos: they’re a comfortable and chic option when carrying baby #2!

For those who dream in skyscrapers, don't fret. Here's how to style your little heel:

- Stealth Cat: A floral swing skirt with a distressed T-shirt is sweet yet unexpected. Find the right hat to complete the look.
- Meow-wow: A mini frock looks modern and tasteful when you’re lower to the ground. Jazz up your arms with bangles galore.
- Cool Cat: Menswear-inspired shorts are dope. Pair with a tank, blazer and a long pendant.
- Pretty Kitty: Skinny leggings and tribal-beat tunic are lovely. Opt for a large cocktail ring for glamour.

Give your go-to heels the hiatus they deserve. And please welcome back the little cat.
