You better stay high and tall, as I am here to share with you my favorite platforms and flatforms for this year that are easy to style and can make you look fresh and sophisticated at the same time. Why are these shoes so popular right now? This is a continuation of the ugly shoe trend and there is nothing you can do about it, just make sure to wear it right. That’s what we are going to talk about in today’s article. Just before looking through street style images, I wanted to mention Spice Girls and their eye-catching platform shoes. This gigantic footwear was so popular back in 2000’s, but I can’t remember my friends wearing them in the streets. Anyway, let’s get down to the business and see what’s trending now.
Why are people not into platforms? First of all, this footwear is not flattering, but they do look edgy, funky and sophisticated. These bigfoot shoes are the ones that are fashion oriented, but they will always lose to our beloved and sexy stilettos. It’s funny to hear stylists saying that we are facing a battle between chunky sandals, flatforms, platforms, and stilettos. Don’t know how about you, but I will always be stiletto addicted lady.
If you don’t want to feel yourself like an Eiffel Tower or a giraffe, then you better pick platforms with fewer hick soles. So, what shoes to pick: platforms with heels or classic flatforms? I personally go for any style, just make sure they have thick soles. I mean, flatforms can be in the design of sneakers, brogues, slide-in sandals or espadrilles. Yes, they come in different styles, colors and designs, but I do like to see women wearing platform shoes in a classic vintage style that remind me of 1970’s look.
Every single style of thick-soled Birkenstocks, slippers and slide-sandals is so geek-ish and beyond cool, in other words saying, you definitely should give them a try this year. Why? They are so easy to style in real life, they gonna fit almost every look you own in your closet. Enough talking, take a close-up look through these inspirational street style images and choose your favorites. You are more than welcome to pick a matching outfit consisting of bright color top and matching skirt or pants and complete it with platform sandals in a neutral color. I do love to see women who keep their outfit in one color, even shoes.
