For this summer you can take a bit of a holiday from the stiletto heels; the fashion gods have granted us some time off by making the lower heel this summer’s obsession.
You get to pick between three heights; the kitten which is about 60mm, the new (and more trendy) Nano heel which has a maximum height of 40mm or you can go flat – yes that’s right no heel at all!
For me personally (apart from trainers and flip-flops) I rarely get on with a flat shoe, strangely I find a hard flat shoe or a ballerina pump very difficult to walk in – I quite like a kitten – and the image above features my new investment for the office, the button kitten heels in white, from NEXT.
These shoes are ticking the box for two current trends – heel height and the pointed toe. I can’t believe how comfy they were on their debut outing to the office, I did a whole day without a concern for any rubbing.
The white is not too bright either, perfect for a fresh look this Spring/Summer. The leather is fairly soft but when you wear an open cut shoe of this type, you need the leather to be quite sturdy to give you the firmness you need to walk well. A great price at £38 – it’s going to be hard to keep me out of these, I’m loving them so much!

TOPSHOP – Juniper Ball Heel Mules
Yellow or Nude
The mule is another big trend this Summer and I think Topshop has got it so right with this fabulous yellow ball-heel mule. Also available in nude this simple design is quite a statement. Heel height is 1″ making it a Nano heel and it’s 100% leather. Gorgeous.
TOPSHOP – Knot Woven Mules
Black or White
I tried these on in black and I didn’t find the weave too comfy because it’s a hard weave with no give at the width, so unless these fit you perfectly I think they will rub. They would be gorgeous for the summer holidays, so if they fit you right, these will be sure to be a winner.
ZARA – Flat Mules with Pearl Beads
A great pair of flat mules, these will fit right in with lots of pieces I’m sure you already own in wardrobe – maxi dresses, black trousers or skirt, pearl detailing on tops etc. These are a statement piece.
ZARA – Slingback Court Shoes with Elastic Strap
These gorgeous two-tone pointed toe shoes are ideal for the office, the height of the heel is kitten at 50mm, they will look fabulous with a dress, skirt or trousers (make sure your trouser length allows you to show off your ankles). They will be ideal to team with a nude or white bag and wear with a black or navy dress giving you the chance to take your usual office dresses on into the summer with these lighter accessories.
ASOS – Stradivarius Tie Back Kitten Heel Court Shoe
Described as kitten, after reviewing the video I think these are Nano, as in under 40mm. I’m keen to give you more options to team up with office black dresses as I know it’s important to those of you who want to carry on wearing your usual office attire but look less winter. And I think these monochrome shoes would be perfect.
Dune London – Casterly Studded Strap Kitten Heel Shoe
Pink (also available in Black, Blush, White and Grey)
I just had to include these fabulous pink kittens from Dune, the heel is 65mm in height and they come in lots of colour versions too. Strappy metallic studs with croc-embossed pointed toes makes this shoes super-feminine and it goes to prove you can still have gorgeousness at a lower height!
