Have to say, this wasn’t a trend I saw myself getting on board with. For starters, I’m 5’9 and while I love being tall, I tend to try and stay away from shoes that are going to have me towering over my friends. Secondly, platforms always reminded me of bad 1970s disco films. That is, until I saw the ones from Stella McCartney. Pictured above, they just scream chic while still remaining eccentric and quirky, which means that they have my name written all over them. I saw a pair at Bloomingdales this past weekend and couldn’t help but squeal with delight. One thing I’m not all about though, is the $1,000+ price tag that they babies have – eeps! Luckily for me (and you!) I was able to snag a great pair of lookalikes from Dolce Vita for only $90.
Really comfortable (I did have to go down half a size though due to my feet slipping in the back), the flatforms add a certain chic-ness to any outfit. Skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans both look fantastic with them, and if you’re really ready to get on the 1970s bandwagon, a pair of flared jeans would be right on trend!
