The platform wedge is making a comeback for the spring 2015 season. Just when we thought platform shoes were fading into obscurity, lug soles raised the bottoms of shoes and now the platform wedge has dared to return! What is going on?! Obviously the shoe world is confused. 😉
Consumers have not completely abandoned platforms; despite the fact that they faded out of fashion two years ago. Due to this fact called consumer demand, designers and brands have quietly shipped platform wedges to stores for the spring season.
Although scarce on the runways, platform wedges are being spotted on store shelves for the spring season in droves. Almost every designer and brand has produced at least one platform wedge style for the spring season. Platform wedges are being spotted in various styles from flatform to styles with a 4″ pitch. There is something for everyone when it comes to platform wedges this spring 2015 season.
Platform wedges are also being shown in every color of the season; as well as neutral and black tones.Designers have opted to design platform wedges for casual dress this spring season. To make the style casual, spring 2015’s platform wedges are being shown with cork, nautical rope and wood soles. This makes the style easy to pair with breezy pants, flowing cotton skirts, jeans and shorts. It is the “IT” weekend and casual shoe for spring 2015. Love it!
What do you think of the return of the platform wedge for the spring 2015 season? Are you ready to rock a pair of platforms again? Or, is it too soon to go sky-high?
If you saved your platform wedges from 2010-2012, you can easily shop your closet this spring season and save your shoe budget for other styles. If you already donated those platform wedges, or you just want new shoes (doesn’t everyone?!), then here are a few of my favorite spring styles from around the web: happy shopping, and stay fabulous 😉
