Today’s article is dedicated to platform shoes and ways how to style them the right way. We all want to look special, no matter how hard it can be. That’s why when it comes to footwear, we forget about functionality and go for extreme styles. Stop it! You have to realize that the most important thing for women is comfort and practicality.
That’s why we see a comeback of platform shoes. Yes, they are functional and can be styled in many creative ways. In this blog post, I will show off and explain cool outfit ideas you can recreate with different platform footwear designs.
What Are The Best Platform Shoes
Here is a list of key platform shoe styles every woman should have in her closet. I’ve chosen my top must-have styles. So, behold, my personal favorites are:
- Platform Heeled Pumps;
- Platform Ankle Boots;
- Chunky Platform Sandals;
- Platform Peep Toe Heeled Sandals;
- Platform Loafers;
- Platform Oxfords;
- Platform Sneakers.
Each one of these footwear styles is cool and versatile. I’m no wonder why they are so in trend right now. Believe me, you gonna be a real street style star, once you try one them on and go out somewhere this evening. Thanks to modern footwear designs you can now actually wear plaforms without looking like a retro girl.
What To Wear Platform Shoes With
I prefer to wear my platform loafers during the summertime, as I can get creative and think of thousands of cool ensembles completed with prints and bright colors. Why do I love platforms so much?
First of all, I am a petite girl, who needs some extra inches, so I can easily reach sugar from the kitchen’s top cabinet (that is unreachable for me with no shoes on).
Secondly, they give me a perfect fit and extra height, plus you can underline your trendy style by emphasizing your outfit with bright footwear design. For instance, it can be a black leather jacket worn over white top teamed with cuffed jeans and shiny red platform Mary Janes.
Another look can consist of a pair of chunky platform ankle-boots with eye-catching details, like floral embroideries styled with an oversized sweater combined with a cream green leather bag.
You can also keep things monochrome by adding the same color tops, cool footwear, and jackets. By the way, I do love to see ladies who combine their sweaters with black leather mini skirts and chunky ankle-boots in black leather.
