Black, White, Espadrille, or Straps. Any way you slice it, platforms add a funky (yet classic) heel to an otherwise meh outfit. Platforms also have the oh so sexy height and still crazy comfortable. My favorite this summer is my TEVA platform style. I wear sparkly to add the much needed “shine” to my everyday life! You can also try a pop of color or pattern variety.
Also, I love the classic espadrille platform for a timeless appeal. Please remember that although an espadrille is perfect for summer, please don’t wear to weddings. They are great for casual and date night, but not quite dressed up for a wedding. Last, to update your summer casual look, try a platform sneaker!! They are fun, modern and give you some height!
Just like clothing, when you layer it, you immediately add more visual interest. I often talk about the third piece: most people just wear a first piece, a top, and a second piece, a bottom. The third piece adds dimension, personality and lots of optical excitement. Add a third piece to your neck, ears or hands, too!
