Kitten heels are back. Vogue has said so, and Twitter has howled in laughter. Maybe it’s the memory of all those prissy ladies-who-lunch heels. Although they never really left, especially not in branches of LK Bennett. Or maybe Theresa May is responsible for this distaste. She debuted her leopard-print kitten back in 2002 when the heel shape was still in its prime. But still, no one wants to wear the same shoes as the PM, and I say that as someone who shared with Margaret Thatcher a predilection for the Salvatore Ferragamo Vara.
But despite the protestations kitten heels are not only back, they are back in the places that count.
