Basically ALL the major fashion houses had kitten heels strutting down their SS24 runways, and they’ve just been named the “hottest product” by Vogue. With so many ways to style them, it’s easy to see why! Cute, sultry, feminine, edgy: they are really the all-rounder of heels. These petite heels will complement all your favourite outfits, from the much loved and classic Little Black Dress to distressed denim and a slouchy knit.“Micro heels” are the ultimate outfit elevator, with no compromise on comfort, like some of our favourite taller pairs.

You could channel Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s with a classic slingback or bring out your inner 90s girl with a pair of bright and pointed kitten heels. These chic, classy cuties are sure to be a wardrobe staple for years to come.

2. Details & Embellishments

Studded ballet flats became a fashion favourite last year, and embellished shoes continue to be a hot-ticket item on both the catwalks and our social feeds. Think chunky buckles, bow heels, decorative gems and shimmering studs – these bold flirty details add extra personality and flair to the classic clog or heel.

Embellished shoes always bring the vibes to any occasion, from casual to formal. Black studded flats look chic day and night, while neutral nude, beige and black buckled shoes with loose trousers or stockings make for elevated office wear. And, if you’re tying the knot in 2024, a pair of bridal shoes with fun and on-trend bow embellishments will complete the romantic aesthetic.


Chrome is having a moment in the collective psyche, with iridescent footwear shining bright on the runway and the red carpet. Metallic heels are the shoes of choice for some of Hollywood’s hottest starlets. Julia Fox is consistently seen with high impact molten footwear, Taylor Swift wore metallic green heels to the 2024 Golden Globes, while Selena Gomez rocked a pair in high-shine red patent leather, all with a chrome finish.

You can’t be afraid to shine while accessorising with silver and gold. Metallic shoes are surprisingly easy and versatile to wear – and you don’t need to be dressed to the nines to pull them off. Pair silver metallic block heels with a baby tee of the printed variety and a low rise midi skirt, or use flat metallic gold shoes to dress up jeans or slouchy pants. You can even keep things comfy with sleek silver or gold sneakers. The styling possibilities are endless!

4. Slouchy Boots and Skin-Tight Boots

Another 90s throwback that’s in the spotlight for 2024, loose and baggy boots!  This trend is giving us all those y2k feels (in a good way!)  It’s time to take your cue from Rihanna and Emily Ratajkowski, and add a pair of metallic, leather or suede slouch boots to your 2024 shoe-drobe.
Scrunched and rouched slouchy boots give you that effortlessly glam “supermodel off duty” look. Throw on a denim skirt and a luxe oversized sweater (preferably off the shoulder)  with a pair of slouch ankle boots for casual Friday in office and heading to early drinks. Or pair mid-calf slouch boots with a minidress for an evening out, it’s an easy way to add detail to minimal looks without going OTT.

On the other end of the spectrum, sleek and slim leg boots are another essential must-have. This type of boot is very flattering as the tight shape hugs the curves of your calves perfectly, creating a smooth silhouette. 
On the feet of the hottest celebs, this trend is here to stay. Kim K has been spotted wearing over-the-knee skin tight boots with fitted midi dresses, very office siren. We love the combination of blazer, skirt and skin-tight boot, another take on the trending bayonetta vibe. Skinny calf boots also look great with sleek leggings, and tight knee-high boots will always complement a shorter skirt or dress. Choose a slim pair of calf high boots with a kitten heel and a metallic finish to combine three of the year’s hottest footwear trends. 


It’s all about iconic Alexa Chung circa 2010 vibes with the ‘i’m with the band’, understated look that characterises preppy yet cool fashion footwear. Think loafers paired with frilly socks and mary-janes made modern with embellishments and trending hues.

Pull your outfit together neatly with a pair of these 2024 essentials or another must have-  two-tone ballet flats with chic block heel. These shoes look perfect with other Alexa Chung inspired staples like floral dresses, pleated skirts, blazers and grunge striped sweaters. Don’t forget to top it all off with a preppy leather tote and chic winged eyeliner.

Whether you prefer the classic look or something with a bit of an edge, Steve Madden has an on-trend shoe for you this season.
