They’re baaaa-aaack! Platforms are making a huge comeback as the 1970’s take center-stage for fall 2015 as the most important decade of influence over fashion for the cool weather season. As flare jeans, boho-chic, and long, straight hair return for fall, platforms and chunky heeled shoes take center stage as the “IT” shoe trend of the season.
There are two distinct shoe styles in this fall trend; the chunky heel with a flat sole, and the true, 1970’s platform. Chunky heeled shoes are being shown on sandals, pumps, booties, and boots for the fall 2015 season. Chunky heels are paired with a traditional flat sole, and round toe. This is an easy-to-walk-in version of the 1970’s shoe trend we are seeing hitting the streets from the runways for fall 2015. If you don’t want a broken ankle this fall, this is the ultimate way to rock the 70’s shoe trend. Chunky heels can be found in varying heights ranging from 1″ to 5″ depending on what you want to wear! Love that!
If you are feeling more retro and daring, platforms are back with a vengeance for the fall 2015 season. These vintage-styled shoes will look fierce with flare jeans, midi-skirts, and a-line mini-skirts for fall. Platforms are being shown on pumps, sandals, booties, and boots for fall 2015. Many soles are wooden, or made to look like wood. The color to look for is medium-dark brown. This will give off a true, 1970’s vibe. Groovy!
When it comes to platforms, be ready to practice walking in your shoes! These shoes are not for the faint of heart. If you need to do a lot of walking, or chasing of children, platforms may not be the right shoe for you. It is definitely worth owning one pair, which can be worn to events where you don’t need to walk up hills, or walk long distances. They are the ideal shoe to pair with your flare jeans this fall season! So hip 😉
