This year it is all about the platform, the extra height and the added sass.
The actual idea of platform shoes dates back to Ancient Greece where they were used mainly in theatre to give extra height. However, it was not until the 60’s that we saw an influx in platform popularity. Dare we forget Studio 54? It was not all about the shimmer and shine; it was about the comfort and ease of wearing your platforms and strutting them as the next big thing.
This summer we see a lot of designers introducing the trend of platform on the runways. Whether you are on the petite side or actually carry some height; platform shoes are your best choice. With a pair of flared pants, jeans shorts or even your favourite pair of jeggings; your platform shoes are guaranteed to turn heads.
These are my favourite picks for the season.
