We Already Know This Will Be the Biggest Shoe Trend of the Year

Kenneth Cole once said, "The average women falls in love seven times a year. Only six are with shoes." Well, if you haven't fallen in love yet, you're about to. There's one style of shoe dominating Instagram and the streets of fashion weeks this year, and you guessed it, it's the kitten heel mule. This style has a short, slender heel (usually from three to four centimetres) that is backless and often closed toed. Essentially, the epitome of chic and feminine. Looking like it was pulled from the costume set of Sex and the City (in a great way), it's not only the international fashion girls wearing the trend, but our Australian It girls, too.

Reason why everyone's still obessed? It's all about balance in an outfit and the kitten heel mule does exactly that. Not adding too much bulk with a boot or a platform, and not adding too much height with stilettos. It's an understated feminine approach with a vintage feel. It's also worth mentioning they are definitely one of the most comfortable style of heel. Like Brooke, Petra and Talisa have done, pair with your favourite jeans and let the shoes do all the talking. Easy.

The detailing on these mules is so swoon-worthy.

The bow adds an elegant detail.

Like the white boots trend... But not boots.

Yes, you do need periwinkle mules.
