Elle UK adds weight to the debate

Kitten heels, I’m warming to you. While I, like many fashionisers, am nowhere near willing to give up my leg-lengthening stilettos and platforms, I am starting to feel your dainty pointed toes and sensible slender heels digging into my mind like tiny feline claws. It all comes down to the styling, of course. It’s about capturing the appeal of another era, and using the right pieces to do so. With big bouffant hair, ’60s full skirts and kitten heels under socks (cute patterned ones, no less) this pictorial from Elle UK does it pretty well.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
