Spring Fashion Trends: The Chunky Heel

December 21, 2012 • Blahnik Tonic, Fashion Blog, Trends


Thank goodness for chunky heels for spring 2013. Instead of teetering around on deadly stilettos, our ankles can sit comfortably on a stacked thick heel. The trend was popular in September Fashion Week as designers like Carven, Chanel, and Erdem nodded to a vintage feel and kept ankles safe from harm. Here are a few chunky heels available to purchase right now.

J. Crew Collection Etta Cap Toe Tweed Pump, $189

Cute and stylish, these tweed heels from J. Crew might be my favorite. The shoes are classic with the navy cap toe but are still fun and girly without being overwhelmingly dramatic. Pair them with neutral pants or a below the knee skirt for the office, a dinner party or a stylish day of shopping.

Reed Krakoff Oxford Leather Loafers, $625

These loafers give you the lift with the heel but keep your look casual. They are comfortable and warm, perfect for the beginning of spring. The neutral tones in the shoe make is easy to pair with just about any look.

Elizabth and James Clair High Heel Sandals, $162

Adorable for spring, these shoes do double duty by fulfilling two footwear trends: chunky heels and strappy metallic. These shoes might not be ready to take on the winter snowstorms, but once the sun comes out, the sandals are ideal for keeping feet cool and stylish.

 Pour La Victoire Aeesha, $250

The pointed toe is back and this time opts for the nearly wedged thick heel. These Pour La Victoire shoes are clean cut and very modern with an easy-to-wear architectural vibe. Available in Tobacco Ostrich, Black Foil Cloudy Patent, Navy Ostrich and more, these are an amazing transitional shoe. While they may not stand out from the crowd at a quick glance, they will compliment just about any outfit.
