Buy This, Not That: Summer Style Edition

Buy Kitten Heels, Not Stilettos

Your feet can breathe a sigh of relief. Last season's super-high stiletto heel is out, and the comfier kitten heel is in. Problem is, kitten heels don't always flatter the ankles and legs quite like those stilettos do. That's why designers like Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Betty Jackson, Lagerfeld, Louis Vuitton and Missoni are giving this shoe a makeover, with eye-catching details like stylish ribbons, straps, platform souls and even feathers.
