1) New Neutrals 

To kick off the platform shoe round up, Alyssa shows how neutrals are always resilient. No matter the trend, when opting for head-to-toe neutral, your look is immediately elevated. She styles her sensible strappy platform sandals in a warm sand shade with a ruffled top and soft midi skirt. Neutrals have simply never looked better.

3) Slip Dress & Utility Flatforms

What’s not to love about the stark contrast between a delicate slip dress and edgy, utilitarian shoes? Despite being such an unexpected pairing, both pieces yield a feminine, yet practical ensemble fit for summer. We highly recommend flatforms if you love the platform trend but ultimately want something that is comfortable enough to wear for hours on end.

4) Cozy Cardi & Low-Waist Denim

There is no denying that all platform shoes have that nostalgic aspect to them. With the continued emphasis on Y2K trends this season, consider double dipping into the throwback style bucket. We love how Tin pairs her comfy platform sandals with low-slinging denim and a colorful cropped cardi. This is an effortless formula you can implement with the pieces you probably already own in your collection. Complete the summer vibes with a straw tote and colorblock bag.

5) Catsuit 

The cat is out of the bag. Platform shoes make a great pairing with any catsuit outfit. The one-piece works overtime to elongate and slim the body but the final touches of the ultra chunky shoes finishes off the look. Just add a textured handbag for extra dimension and you are ready to head out the door in style.

6) Column Dress

For those balmy summer nights, one cannot go wrong with a column dress and platform shoe pairing. We are huge fans of these types of maxi dresses because of their ability to hug you in all the right places. For more relaxed occasions, a pair of platform flip flops is the picture perfect accompaniment to take your basic dress to another level. It’s trendy without being over-the-top and is wearable all season long.

7) Varsity Bomber Jacket & Platform Loafers

You can inject a preppy vibe into all of your summer outfits by investing in a pair of chunky platform loafers. Academia inspired looks are still on the rise and this smart shoe is a great way to make just about anything look polished. Kate styles her platform loafers with an oversized varsity jacket and pleated skirt, giving us the ultimate collegiate vibes. Note that this combination works even if you trade the skirt for longer shorts or cropped trousers.

8) Pajama Dressing & Bright Platforms

If summer was an outfit, we are convinced it would look something like this. Without fail, there is a larger emphasis on brighter and bolder colors during this season and nothing gets us in the mood for summer love than saturated shoes. To add to the carefree mood, pajama-like base layers will do the trick. Think plisse pleated pants, knitted trousers and button-down shirts of any texture.

9) Cargo Pants

Cargo pants, which are inherently more masculine and casual, are completely revamped with sky-high platforms. This further proves that even the most pared-back pieces within our wardrobe can be heightened when you opt for these towering shoes. Whether it’s cargos and a crop top or parachute pants and a tank, we love how they breathe new life into our closet staples.

10) Dare to Bare

To finish this roundup with a bang, we suggest you up the ante with the above head-turning combination. Dare yourself to go bare with intricately placed cutout pieces. This midi dress with the not-so-subtle keyhole detailing down the side is a match made in heaven for some uber chunky platform shoes. It’s just chefs kiss in our opinion.
