Kitten Heels in Fall 2018 Runway Shows

If you’re looking for a shoe trend that’ll keep you comfortable, get excited: Kitten heels are coming back into style!

What’s great about Fall 2018’s kitten heels are the modern twists that have been added. Boring or “old lady” kitten heels are out the door and this season’s must have styles are all about bold colors, appliqués, and a wide variety of textures, as seen on the runway with Prabal Gurung. 

Not only are Fall 2018’s kitten heels cute, but they are definitely easy to wear. You can last a whole day walking around in these heels and that’s saying a lot.

Below are some affordable and cute kitten heels that you can wear for any occasion. And as a bonus, all of these shoes are priced under $50!

A Colorful Accent Piece!

Their bright colors make for a perfect accent piece to your outfit and will definitely make you stand out in the crowd. Not only will these multicolored heels make your outfit pop, but they can basically match anything in your closet! 

These sandals are youthful but still have that mature feel with the low heel and the pointed toe. You can find these IMPO kitten heels online at DSW, where they are currently on sale for $34.98.

The Alessey Sandal from Kelly & Katie combines classic elegance with a bit of flair, thanks to the accent bow and studs. These shoes are perfect to wear for your internship due to the comfortable low heel, while its simplicity can work in any professional setting.
