Well, you can be grateful that they are on their way out as classic and kitten heels have made their way in. If you are in hunt for the perfect pair of kitten heels check out Prada collection for fall winter 2010/11. Ankle strapped heels will keep it sexy in spring-summer 2011. Totally crushing on Louis Vuitton’s collection.

4. Fringes and Scrumptious Jewels

Grecian straps are so last (or last to last) year so keep them away from the fashion police. Instead embrace fringed sandals and scrumptious jewels as shoe embellishments. You can never go wrong with metallic hints and depending how you wear it you can look either glamorous or edgy. Loafers are here to replace the cute ballerina. Believe it.
