How to wear black kitten heels without looking “mumsy”?
I’m 18 and recently bought a pair of black suede, kitten heel wedge. How do I wear them without looking old(er) and mumsy?
Indeed, black suede kitten heels can make you look mumsy.
If you wear them with a longer A-line skirt, with a knee length pencil skirt, or with long bootcut pants, for instance.
But you can also look very fun and flirty with them.
And cause they are easy to walk with, you way of walking will be more bouncing so more youthful.
Here are what you could wear them with
1. 7/8 skinny pants
Skinny and especially jeans are very modern, so they are a good mix to look youthful. I added a fun bag and top to keep the fresh spirit of the look.
2. Rolled up boyfriend jeans
Here I mixed the classic and classy pumps with ripped boyfriend jeans and a fun T-shirt. A perfecto completes the rebel spirit of the outfit and the strawberry red nailpolish adds some color.
The two jeans outfit would be amazing with a pair of red kitten heels like those
3. Skater or pleated mini skirt
The skater skirt is flirty and girly. With higher heels it can look very sophisticated, but with your kitten heels it will look fresh. I added an oversize turtle neck if you wanna wear that in the daytime and a funky bag for the fun and the color.
For the night you could wear it with a simple black T-shirt and a necklace.
4. Straight or A-line mini-skirt
The kitten heels were very popular in the sixties. I got inspired from the youthful look from that time and chose an A line black skirt that I paired with a yellow knit. A black backpack reminds that you are a student.
Hope you’ll get inspired!
