Many of us are probably aren´t aware that the kitten or “Sabrina” heels are the most elegant, feminine and versatile shoes when it comes to heels. They´re usually one and a half to two inches in height, with a distinct girlie curve to it – a miniature stiletto. They are the perfect happy and practical means between figure-flattening flats and painful high heels.
Kitten heels, especially those with pointed toe, low vamp, and two-inch heels, are the most flattering shoes for a petite woman like me. I´m in my most confident and secure day when I put them on. I wear them when I know I have to look great while walking or standing whole day.
Kitten heels are also known as Sabrina heels. The name “Sabrina” stuck to these heels when the effervescent Audrey Hepburn wore them in 1954 film, Sabrina. The title character was sweet, pretty, understatedly chic, and most of all, comfortable. Pair them with pants, a little above the knee dresses (my favorite is fit and flare dress), or with a skirt of just about any shape. You will remain light on your feet, charming and stylish all day long.
