A trend existed in the 70’s and 90’s, block heels trend is making a comeback in a more fashionable and modern style. Block heel style of footwear is great for women that live in walking cities as stacked heels are more comfortable than sky-high stilettos. Block heels are also a stylish alternative that you can actually wear to work. So, say goodbye to your stilettos and partake to the growing trend of block heels with our styling tricks.
Trade your classic stiletto pumps with blocked heeled shoes.
Though kitten heeled pumps seem to be the dressier alternative to your sky-high stiletto pumps, block heeled shoes are always the most comfortable choice to remain chic and professional in your workplace. Just go for a closed-toe style and save those peep-toes in your casual events. Block heeled shoes in pointy-toe style elongates your legs more, therefore making you look taller than you actually are. Like fashion blogger Mary Orton, preserve the formality in your looks by opting for black, beige, nude, or white shades on your block heeled pumps to wear with your office outfits.
Opt for block heels to spice up your casual-chic outfits.
Dressier than flip-flop sandals and ballet flats, block heeled sandals are a perfect match for your casual-chic outfits, especially dresses and skirts. You want some comfort and style especially when going out to show off your street looks, so trade your ballet flats that don’t add any inches on your stature and flip-flop sandals that look not-so-stylish at all. Like fashion blogger Chiara Ferragni, you may even opt for a pair of pink lace-up shoes with block heels to wear with your fashion week outfit that looks feminine, playful, and fashion-forward enough. You may also think of some quirky details on your shoes to add some personality to your street style.
Add some edge to your style with block heeled boots.
Boots are one of the edgiest accessories you may go for to channel a “tough-girl” look. However, you may skip those stiletto boots that feel uneasy to walk in and flat boots that look so boring. Instead, opt for a pair of boots that goes perfectly with your outfit like a pair of combat boots with retro outfit, a pair of over-the-knee patent boots with skinny jeans, or a pair of ankle boots with a skirt. This way, you’ll get the most versatile and comfortable boots to wear with any of your outfits.
Wear your block heeled sandals with denim jeans.
Block heeled sandals, especially in the same color of your jeans, add some height to you visually since the stacked heels become the extension of your legs. The trick is to pick the same shade of sandals with your jeans to create a lower contrast that looks seamlessly perfect. On the contrary, you can create a high contrast to your outfit like Kristina Bazan did, opting for a nude pair of block heeled sandals and black jeans especially if you feel tall enough.
Create a trendy look with color blocked footwear.
Flashy, statement-making, and trendy, color blocking is a voguish trend nowadays that you can incorporate into your style. You may opt for a pair of color blocked sandals to match with your solid-colored dress like fashion blogger Annabelle Fleur did making her outfit intentional and playful. But if you’re not a fan of colors, you may stick to cap toe style of shoes in neutral shades, as well as ankle strap sandals in the shades of white, black, and brown, that looks more versatile and chic for your street style. Indeed, block heels trend is a stylish and comfortable fix for your feminine style.
