It's hip to be squared this season with spring's cubism inspired accessories. Introducing my new found favourite... block heels.
|Fashion week streets|
|Balenciaga blocks their block heels... love it|
Being 5 ft 2 I am a dedicated fan of the heel but I have endured many an embarrassing wobble and ankle twist whilst teetering on my beloved skinny, sky-high stilettos. Block heels on the other hand offer the height without jeopardising your safety and grace status!
Although block heels started as more of a ladylike staple, styles have developed and evolved into much edgier takes on this trend and encompass platform characteristics, colour-blocking and mix and matching of textures.
|My cute ladylike versions from H&M. Please note the metallic heel! Love.|
|Michael Kors' transparent take on the trend|
|Prada takes it to the next level...|
|and even more so... a block heel... literally|
I’m cheering all the way down the streetes as a more practical approach to styling creeps into fashion.
I heart block heels and quite frankly, for a change, so do my feet!
