The Platform Style You Need To Ditch (And What You Should Be Wearing Instead)

It’s an undeniable truth that platforms are officially back. After disappearing for a  few seasons, this comfy retro-inspired shoe has made a return to the fashion scene in so many new and fresh silhouettes. However, this particular shoe style runs the risk of looking tacky if not styled properly, or if the wrong silhouette is chosen. Generally, the higher the platform, the cheaper the shoe looks. Try to keep the platform on your shoe no taller than two inches to avoid becoming a fashion faux pas.
