We all know that styles go through cycles. What was popular 20 years ago is popular today, and one of those trends is platform shoes. Everyone wore platforms shoes in the ‘60s/’70s, but they’re making a comeback today, with everything from platform heels to platform sneakers.
Not only do they give you an extra inch or two of height, but they’re also super stylish and add an edgy touch to any outfit. So if you’re looking to get on the platform trend but don’t know how, we compiled five ways to wear platform shoes:
With a slip dress
A slip dress is delicate and straightforward, while platform shoes are much bolder- meaning they’re the perfect pair. Plus, a slip dress with platform sneakers gives a total ‘90s vibe, which makes it even more trendy.
With a blazer and minidress
Classy and cute, but with an edgy flair. Wear a classic blazer with a fun colored dress and finish the look off with a cute pair of platform heels for a stylish outfit you can wear anytime.
With tights or socks
Showing your tights/socks with open-toed shoes has been a trend for a while, and it goes perfectly with platform shoes. You can either go for a bold, patterned pair of tights with a solid shoe or vice versa- regardless, it will be super cute.
With multiple patterns
Mix-matching patterns are definitely in and doing so with your shoes is an excellent, subtle way to jump in on the trend. Wear an animal print platform sandal with a tie-dye dress for a bold look.
With a sweatsuit
Wearing a pair of cute, chunky platform sneakers with a matching sweatsuit is the perfect way to elevate a chill outfit. Add on some jewelry and a shoulder bag, and you’re ready to look stylish while staying comfortable.
