Queer Fashion | Is there any sexier feeling than making a show-stopping entrance in a fabulously fierce and always height-boosting pair of heels? Okay, we admit, that’s debatable. But here at KitschMix, we do love the sense of conviction that comes with putting on a pair of heels.
Here are three of our favourite heels for the season, so sharp they could be used as weapons (of self-confidence, of course).
Letting a bit of skin peek through clothing, whether through cutouts or sheer material, has been a fashion mainstay for the past few years. It’s only fitting that this trend finds its way to sheer shoes. These black lace stilettos from Dolce and Gabbana are too elegant for the fact that we’re drooling over them. If you’re not willing to break the bank, try this pair from Pink Pepper Dinka lack the lace, but the mesh-like details give it sporty vibes, right on trend.
The basic pump is the sort of accessory that you can throw on any outfit, whether for work or going out. It’s a versatile piece, but we love how the runways have switched up this classic shoe with straps that wrap around the ankle. The trend is a call back to the ‘90s, but with its sleek and metallic design, it finds its unique place in 2014. Take inspiration from these heels from Roland Mouret, which embrace white, one of this season’s chic colours.
Last, but certainly not least, might be 2014’s most controversial shoe trend—the mule. Mules are open-backed and close-toed shoes, and women over the age of 60 generally love them. This year, though, they’ve been given a youthful makeover. You can find them with block heels or stilettos, and they come both in boot-style or pump-style. Plus, they’re super easy to wear—throw them on with a pair of jeans and you’ve got a polished look for the rest of your day. Here’s a great pair from Stella McCartney, which don summer 2014’s other dominant colour: pink, pink, pink.
So, add a sizzling pair of heels to complete your summer outfit—you’ll look so hot that you’ll give new meaning to the phrased “dressed to kill.”
