Trend Report: Chunky Heels

As you all know by now, I am not a shoe girl.  Recently, with the help of JustFab, I’ve upgraded my shoe game and can bring out some heavy hitters when appropriate.  Usually though, I can be seen rocking a mean flat.  However, when I do decide to wear a heel, I tend to favor the 5inch and better variety.  My feet and my lack of coordination though prefer flats or 3-4 inch heels.  The perfect in between for me has been a wider and more substantial heel than a stiletto.  So, when chunky-platformed and super tall heels hit the map for this spring, I was ready to get every color, shape and texture!


Chunky heels are generally more comfortable and easier to walk in while giving you extreme height.  These heels come in a variety of shapes as well; chunky does not necessarily mean bulky; a chunky heel can certainly be sleek and light.  I love wearing them with with jeans and dresses, but they can be paired with just about anything that a stiletto can be paired with. A chunky heel does wonders when paired with the ever so trendy flared jeans. I have a couple of pair that have been in constant rotation even before they became trendy and I can be found wearing them in the winter and fall as well.
