Sky High Platforms Are The Funky Footwear Fad For Fall 2016


While classic pumps will never go out of style, edgy and retro inspired platforms are currently ruling the runways. For Fall 2016, bold and chunky heels are set to quite literally elevate your footwear statements to an entirely new level! If you’re bored by flats and intimidated by stilettos, platforms are a chic compromise which will also give you a boost as you strut the sidewalks. This season, draw your inspiration from the catwalks and sport platforms like a true trendsetter.

Casual Chic

Draw your casual footwear inspiration from the Gucci runway, where black and white was the style the moment. The look of black and white striped platforms can easily bring a dose of glamour to your dark wash denim, while dainty white straps help to maintain a feminine effect.

Work Wear

For the office, look no further than the preppy and polished burgundy leather platforms at Maison Margiela. With their Oxford inspired design, towering funky heels and contrasting white stitching, these shoes are sure to make a fierce and stylish first impression. Add a pair of woolly tights as the temperatures drop, in order to showcase your toned stems into the autumn months.


As day turns into night, turn to the brilliant snakeskin print platforms at Mary Katrantzou. The combination of bright pink and blue is sure to illuminate any dance floor, while the quirky multiple straps and high platform heels complete the look. If you’re ready to embrace vivid shoes for the after hours, swapping your cage heels for a pair of platform pumps just may be your style solution.
