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.
Also like this pop heart clutch and this more grown up but still fun leopard mini bag that’ll match the stripes perfectly.

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.
This basic black skirt could become one of your wardrobe staples, but you could also choose a funnier color and print like this forest green plaid pleated skirt or this floral fluid one.

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.
Like this smart yet cool backpack, or like this super fun backpack (that you could wear with neutral colored outfits).
Also like that A-line suede skirt in burgundy or in mustard yellow.
Hope you’ll get inspired!
