"Barbie Heels" Are Trending, and These Are the 28 Pairs I'm Vibing With the Most

·3 min read

If there's one single trend that's infiltrating all areas of our closets, it's bubblegum pink. Since we first noted the flirty hue from the S/S 21 runways, it's kept popping up everywhere we look, from handbags coated in pretty shades of pink to pops of pink in the swimwear section. But I'll let you in on a secret: There's one iteration on the pink trend train that I personally think is the superior way to wear the hue, and that is pink heels. Even before the color was trending as hard as it currently is, I've always had a soft spot for a pair of bright-pink heels. They're fun, they're iconic (who could forget Barbie's epic platform pair?), and they bring a whole lot of look.

If you're understandably skeptical about the staying and styling power bright-pink heels can have, keep reading—I've rounded up the 28 best pairs of pink heels to shop right now.
