Trend Alert: Block Heels 2021

Folks! It’s been awhile since I last did a trend alert article (you can find them all here). One major trend right now are the block heels. They’re often done quite chunky, but still has an elegant touch to them with the heeled style. The block heels 2021 are simply chic, comfortable and wearable! 

Block Heels 2021

So the block heels are a style to count on this year! Or actually, they’re kind of always in style, or at least they’re never out of style. The trendiest style are the sandals with a block heel or ballerinas with a block heel. They’re often done with a chunky appearance, sometimes with a pointy toe and other times a more squared style. Black, white, beige and brown are common colors; but pastel and neon styles are frequent too.

How To Style Them

As the block heels are chunky, it’s a good idea to balance them with lighter clothes. Both midi and knee-length are superb for the chunky style, especially if the dress/skirt/pants are a-line or squared. This will create a more light impression and balance the “clumsiness” of the shoes. I’d avoid full-length pants/dresses/skirts as it will create a more “heavy” look. As we’re talking summer style, you want to keep things as light and breezy as possible. A maxi dress could work, but make sure it’s not a fitted style! You could go for a fitted style if the shoes are in a nude color or if they’re matching the color of the clothes.

Street Style Inspiration

And here we have some street style inspiration! I choose just to add close-ups of the outfits, so you can see how people have been styling with the length of the clothes and the style of the shoes. Do note that many of the outfits are focusing on matching the color of the shoes with the outfit, in one way or another!

  1. Hello Mia,

    First of all hank you so much for your lovely message and for your kind words on my latest blog post. Youknow I really appreciate that you always take the time to stop by and your blog is on my bookmarks, so the feeling is reciprocal 🙂

    Now talking about the main topic of this article I really like shoes with strong personality and I think this block heels are the kind of piece that can make a lot of eyes to look around. You can create the whole look based on the shoes, but as you well said it is important to wear lighter clothes on top in order to make a balance right?

    Will check the other post of the blog and have a nice week!! 🙂


    1. Yes Pablo, I’m so grateful for our relation! Yes, I do think it’s about the balance of statement/ neutral clothes! Xx
