What Are Block Heels?

Block heels are chunky heels that have a squarish appearance. You may also see block heels with a thick, cylindrical shape. Block heels look great with skinny jeans because the skinny silhouette of the jeans toward the ankles helps balance out the thicker block heel and vice versa. Casual midi and maxi skirts add a playful look to block heels. These heels are a fabulous choice for a wide variety of dress silhouettes, from A-line to shift dresses.

Who Should Wear Block Heels?
