Grandpa and grandma style have been all the rage lately, thanks to the popularity of oversized sweaters and eyewear. Now, your feet is about to get a major grandmama update, as kitten block heels have taken the shoe game by storm. And thank God for them — My poor feet have been loving this trend. Although, if I'm being honest, they've lost all feeling from all the bleeding they've done, à la Rachel Greene.
Macklemore may have rapped about thrift shopping, we've been doing this for far longer than when the song came out. I'm talking Goodwill, Salvation Army, and local mom and pop shops. Bargain bin digging, rifling through questionable pieces, and non-stop sneezing are all part of the beautiful process. But oh, when you do find that one magical item, it feels like pure bliss.
I cannot tell you how thrilled I am that the block kitten heel has come back in style. Not only is it incredibly chic (hello, Coco Chanel), but they're also incredibly comfortable. Gone are the days of hobbling to and from the subway, or carrying heels in my bag and walking in flip flops. And hello to happy feet and being able to carry small purses. Plus, they happen to look so chic with wide-legged trousers or raw hem jeans and an oversized sweater.
This is one trend you can definitely find me wearing all fall-long. Bonus points if you can pull them off with socks on! Below, find eight options that'll have you looking timeless all season.
