Fall 2018 shoe trends: kitten heels

Theeeeeeeeey’re baaaaaaa-aaaaack! That’s right! Those tiny little skinny heels are back, and they are everywhere for the fall 2018 season. Meow!

If you have started to shop for fall 2018 shoes, you may have noticed a trend in both heel height and shape. You are not hallucinating, the kitten heel has returned for the fall season, leaving fashionistas slighter shorter this season. Where is my free height? Short girl over here asking for some inches! (See me waving my hand high and fast! No? Must be my kitten heels keeping me short, I need some height!)

Despite the fact that kitten heels only provide one inch of height at most, they are actually comfortable as long as you don’t mind balancing on a stiletto width heel. Kitten heels don’t put very much pressure on the balls of your foot, and they have just enough height to provide a bit of arch support. They are a great alternative to flats this season; especially if you are like me, and try to avoid flats at all costs.

I purchased a pair of white kitten heel booties and they are a great option when I don’t want to wear my high heel booties. I also love the 1950s vintage vibe kitten heels provide. We haven’t rocked a lot of 1950s trends lately, so it’s refreshing to take something from that decade and make it new again.

The kitten heel is being found on all of the fall 2018 shoe trends right now. You can find them on boots, booties, mules, pumps, and slides. Put a bow on the mules or add an animal print to the booties, and you have an IT item of the season. Love that!

I love kitten heels on booties, but when it comes to pumps, I prefer a higher heel. What is your take on kitten heels? Will you rock this fall 2018 shoe trend or will you skip it? What is your favorite shoe style with a kitten heel this season?

How gorgeous is this kimono?! When I first laid eyes on it, I fell in love instantly! The mixed prints are so pretty, and I love the details on the sleeves; and the fact that it is reversible!

Mixed prints have been a huge trend the past few seasons, and the look is showing no signs of slowing down. Rocking this trend is not for the faint of heart, but thankfully Chico’s has done it in a way that makes mixed prints easy to wear; even for the most conservative dressers.

This kimono features one-of-a-kind, hand-painted prints designed in-house by artists for Chico’s. The prints are exquisite and unique. I love knowing that few people are walking the streets in this print; except for the people who bought this kimono. The print has a vintage vibe to it, giving it a nod to the season’s boho-chic trend. Love!

Did I mention this kimono is reversible? Love that!

fall 2018 fashion trends

This kimono is the perfect topper for any casual outfit or solid colored, casual dress. It’s really pretty, and great to wear during fall as temperatures start to cool down.

I originally planned to wear this outfit at New York Fashion Week; but, as you know, due to my medical emergency, I wasn’t able to travel across the country for fashion week. It would have been fun wearing this kimono to the shows! Now, it is one of my go-to casual looks for the fall season. Of course, my daughter has already stolen this kimono from me. I need to sneak back into her room and take it back! What can I say, girl has good taste. haha

Fall is upon us! If you haven’t thought about a fall handbag yet, now is the time! While black handbags, lady bags, and logo bags are still going strong this fall season, another new trend in the handbag world has emerged; the anytime sequin bag.

Sequin handbags are a classic evening bag look. They normally are found on small handbags we carry to semi-formal and formal events. While daytime sequins have been a recent trend on items such as jackets, skirts, and tops, the fall 2018 season is making sequins as common as cotton. Get ready to sparkle and shine!

There really isn’t anything in between. This season, you need to decide; will you be a classic fashionista, or street style paparazzi bait?

For the fall 2018 season, the sequin handbag trend is taking us to new heights. You can pair a sequin fanny pack with jeans and a tee on casual days to up your game, or you can toss a large sequin tote over your shoulder stuffed with your kids necessities when you head to the park. Sequin handbags for fall 2018, you can be fabulous at the supermarket, or out on the town! Love that!

You will find sequins on everything that is hot in handbags for fall 2018 such as fanny packs, lady bags, black bags, and classic flap shoulder bags. If you want to add sass to your casual look, just add a sequin bag!

Sequins are not limited to fall 2018 handbags, you will find sequins this season on everything from daytime shoes to blazers, to skirts, to every type of clothing imaginable.
