I love kitten heels. They’re delicate and elegant, and are so easy to walk in (a bonus if, like me, you’re not great with high heels). And lucky for me, they’re everywhere this season.

But I can understand they’re not to everyone’s taste, the argument being they are a bit noncommittal when it comes to heels, and why not just opt for flats.

Well, if you’re on the fence, I think these beauties might change your mind.

They come courtesy of Marks & Spencer, and feature a black bow on velvet finish.

Now they’re not just perfect for the office (with a pussy bow blouse and high waisted velvet tourers), they’re great for party season too, paired with anything from a little black dress to a red lace jumpsuit.

Plus they’re under £30, an absolute bargain when they look much more expensive than this. You may even be able to find them in the upcoming M&S Black Friday sale, if you're lucky.

I’m not going to lie, I’ve bought them already.

Viva la kitten heel.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
