Women everywhere are bowing down to the fashion gods in deep gratitude this season. FINALLY, there is a footwear trend that is as practical as it is beautiful – the block heel! For what seems like forever, those of us who like heels were forced to balance on several inches of narrow heels or pointy stilettos. In the name of fashion, we’ve subjected ourselves to bunions, twisted ankles, even lower back issues (it ain’t been easy!?)

Now, at last, designers have embraced the comfort and elegance of the block heel. Not only do this year’s designs offer women more support and stability, but they’re super feminine and incredibly versatile.

Block heels are an easy way to update everything from weekend denim to office chic, something even the beloved ballet flat can’t pull off.

Check out these beautiful looks (at all price points). I’ve included links, in case you’re inspired to add a pair to your fall wardrobe.

Happy shopping and please be sure to post a comment or a photo of your favorite block heels!

Have a wonderful, Wellegant™ week,

Karen
