They're not just for your mum, you know

They're not the easiest thing but that doesn't mean you have to write off kitten heels. Quite the opposite; they're not only the most manageable heel on the block - approx a foot-orgasmic 2 inches - but their pointiness makes up for the lack of heel with voom.

Here are some kitten heel-wearing styling tips to steal from Instagram if you a) aren't a girlie girl and b) a 55-year-old from the Home Counties with a wardrobe full of LK Bennett. (Love you mum.)

With an androgynous shirt and slacks


Scandi blogger supreme Pernille teams some black kitten heels with a button-down shirt and some wide-leg black trousers, offsetting the masculinity perfectly.


Or with dreamy ripped denim


The best denim skirt we've ever seen? Uh huh. Allow some refined kitten heels and a white shirt to vibe with Cali girl distressed denim.


**Rolled up boyfriend jeans will also work



The Valentino Rockstud kitten heels are hot propety for good reason - look at them. Our favourite styling we've seen them with is a pair of mussily rolled up boyfriend jeans. Again, a great mix of masc and femme.


Go J Crew preppy peppy


Sort of J Crew, sure - but also very Gallic. It's pretty much Emmanuelle Alt's uniform, white shirt, black heels, black belt and a printed shirt. It's effortless in all the right ways.


In a cacaphony of prints


Stylist Viktoria Sekrier knows a mash-up when she sees one... A printed sweater, a printed skirt and printed kitten heels clash complimentary prints with complimentary palettes. Watch - and learn.
