As we eagerly put the winter months behind us and look ahead to spring the season, you’re probably not alone in already planning out your warm weather outfits in your head. While the trendiest clothes of the moment are shrinking in fabric used (think micro mini skirts, tube tops and barely-there stringy halters), the It-heels of the season actually require more shoe than the average. You guessed it – platform shoes are the footwear trend primed to take over this spring and summer.
Nostalgia is in (just look at the current Y2K fashion trend boom), and it appears ’70s footwear is up next. Take references from the Spring 2022 runways for example: There were bubbly platforms at Acne Studios – some with wooden heels while others appeared fully suede. At Versace, similarly clunky shapes doused in satin, alongside platform leather slides. Meanwhile, Saint Laurent welcomed sky-high peep-toed pumps, and Coperni, revamped iterations of its chunky flip-flops. Of course, there are plenty of brands to shop the trend from on a budget as well. Whether you’re in need of stand-out shoes from the dance-floor, or easy slip-ons for added height on a beach day, shop the best platform shoes on the market right now ahead.
