Platform shoes have been around for a long time. They've gone in and out of style over the years and are making another comeback. To keep your platform shoes from making you look like you stepped back in time, you need to be sure you wear them with the right outfits. See below for some helpful tips on how to wear your platform shoes.
Pair black Mary-Jane platforms with some worn boyfriend jeans rolled at the bottom. Add a white cropped muscle t-shirt, black leather jacket and some black and silver jewelry to finish off the look.
Pair textures like a lace dress or skirt and a fringe scarf with your favorite pair of platform sandals, boots or wooden platform clogs. Add a pair of tights to match your shoes to polish off your look. You can also wear a flowery dress with tights, brown suede platform boots or oxfords and a suede hat to match.
Take your platforms to the office with a black mini skirt, black tights and an over-sized sweater. Wear your favorite pair of black platform heels and a black leather bag to finish the look. Keep your hair pulled back and simple with this look.
Pull an all black look together with a pair of black platform shoes. Wear black skinny jeans or pants, black platform booties, black blouse with a stylish chunky necklace. This look is guaranteed to give you the illusion of height.
Bring the grunge look to the future by pairing black platform combat boots with black skinny jeans, a striped sweater or plaid flannel and top it off with a faded jean jacket. Top the look off with a beanie on your head.
Yes, sneakers come in platforms too. Pair your favorite pair of sneaker platforms with a pair of destructed skinny jeans and a leather jacket. Dress up your sneakers with a simple black dress and bare legs, or wear a pair of printed sneakers with your favorite suit jacket and matching pants.
Pair platform wedge sandals with a pretty sun or maxi dress for warmer weather. Look for platform wedges made with jute or light brown leather to give them a beach feel. You can also pair platform espadrilles with rolled white skinny jeans and a simple top.
If you're having a hard time finding platform shoes that you feel comfortable wearing or walking in, look for simple platform wedges or heels with a thicker heel. These are both easier to walk in, while still giving you the height you're looking for.
Stick to slim pants when wearing platforms, anything with a bigger leg opening will make your look a little too hippie-chic.
