The block heels trend is making a huge comeback. Make sure you have at least one pair in your wardrobe. This style takes the polish of a stiletto and pairs it with a heel you can actually walk in. It’s so much more practical for an everyday use! From work to the weekend, you’ll be so happy to have a pair (or several) of these on hand.
Whether you are going to a cocktail party by the pool or a date night, it is important to know how to wear block heel sandals the right way.
Block Heel Trend
I love when trends end up being practical. After many seasons of stilettos, the block heel is back. And not only that, a lower block heel is just as chic as a higher one.
Block heel shoes are easy to dress down or up, depending on the occasion. You can wear it during your holiday in a tropical island paradise as well as to a work meeting.
Block heel sandals can easily become a central piece of your outfit. This type of heels work well with anything – skirts, dresses, jeans… And when the night comes, you can still wear them with your little black dress. It’s a a sweet way to refresh your denim outfits, office looks, and everything in between.
The best thing about the block heels trend is that it will last for a long time. It is because a block heel lifts the legs just enough to elongate them giving you a slimmer look. At the same time this kind of heel provides a stable foundation for your footing. This makes the shoes easy to wear during the day without feeling pain. Normally, comfortable and stylish clothes & shoes stay in fashion for a long time.
Choosing the Right Block Heels for Your Outfit
Block heels sandals are dressier than ballet flats and flip flop sandals. They can easily compliment your casual chic outfit, especially blouses and dresses. Pair it with a silk blouse and a pair of boyfriend jeans for a chic look. If you are going to a date, wear your shoes with a floral midi dress and a denim jacket.
Buying metallic or neutral colours are the best way to start your collection. That way you can style the shoes with whatever outfit you have in your wardrobe. For braver girls out there, go for some colourful options. They will not only brighten up your look, but also you will enjoy your day so much more!
Block Heel Sandals Looks
Today I have teamed up with EGO to bring some killer styling tips and share the block heel sandals holiday looks.
The Kingsley Strappy Block Heel is perfect for an outfit that looks playful and sophisticated at the same time. Plus, it will add more inches on your stature, which is something that ballet flats can’t do. Moreover, the block heel supports the arch of your foot, and that’s why they are comfortable to wear. Wearing a pair like this with straps around the ankle will provide an additional support.
I am wearing the Gracie Double Strap block heel in purple faux suede with maxi silk skirt and camisole top. This combination is perfect for that romantic dinner with your special one.
The last, but definitely not the lest is this gorgeous pair of Macey Frill Detail Block Heel In plum faux suede. I decided to wear these shoes to an afternoon tea at the hotel. Paired with the lovely and feminine midi dress it gives you that romantic elegant look. Perfect for a traditional ceremony such as afternoon tea.
As you can see, a pair of block heel sandals is the shoe that every women should have. You can wear it with almost all the clothes in your wardrobe. It is definitely the best alternative to stilettos when you are on a summer holiday or running errands all day.
If you were to update your shoe collection for Autumn, go for a pair of block heeled boots, especially if you can only afford one pair. It’s versatile, comfortable and stylish. It can be worn anywhere and anytime. It is definitely one of the investments that you should make.
Finally, the block heels trend is here to stay! Whether you are looking for something sophisticated or simple, you can find a pair of block heel sandals that will complement your outfits.
