Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. View in slideshow Welcome to the new school of low-heeled heels. Here you'll find a slick range of sexy sling-back kitten heels (in brocade finishes and floral prints), polished ankle-strap pumps with crystal embellishments, and classic nude iterations, too. The common denominator? Despite the "under three inches" rule, these shoes pack a just-as-cool punch. And if you're worried about not fully maximizing the leggy look (yes, we know a killer pair of sky-high stilettos does wonders for lengthening your frame), then have a little fun with it. Go for a thigh-skimming skirt instead. All the convincing you'll need to take the low-heel plunge — aside from the obvious comfort perk — is just a click, or 20, ahead. — Additional reporting by Hannah Weil Source: Greg Kessler Shop Brands Jeffrey Campbell · Miu Miu · Valentino · Loeffler Randall · Elizabeth and James · MICHAEL Michael Kors · Pierre Hardy · Jimmy Choo · Boutique 9 · Diane von Furstenberg · No.21 · J.Crew · Nicholas Kirkwood · Tibi · Giuseppe Zanotti · Anthropologie · Alexander Wang For the sophisticate, we've got a polished white option right here: Zara Vamp shoe ($50).
