ALL IN THE DETAILS: Platforms, Please

Spring style is about taking bold fashion risks that have to wait until sunny skies and melted grounds to be achieved. What I mean is, sometimes it takes that extra 10 degrees to whip out that new bag or great new shoes. And hey, there’s nothing wrong with that! More comfortable temperatures call for more exciting looks, and that’s definitely something to celebrate about.

Now, I’m not saying to grab your credit card and splurge or anything, but if those Jeffrey Campbell’s are calling your name, what’s to stop you from clicking purchase? (In anticipation for those post-Memorial Day rules, am I right?) With that in mind, this Fashionista really went for it with this dreamy pair of shoes. The contrasting little black ensemble really added to her wow factor and we both know your eye is drawn right down to her feet. Plus, the gladiator-style sandals really add comfort in the warm weather that this Fashionista has been anticipating.

Who says you have to go through life at five foot two inches when you can instantly add height in a subtle and oh-so trendy way! That’s the beauty of platform shoes as the greatest part about this trend is its versatile appeal, all the while maintaining a pretty universal statement. You can grab a pair of tall sneakers, sandals or even boots.

How To: Have a pretty standard outfit that needs some sprucing up? Add a spunky pair of platforms to play up the excitement of an outfit. A great pair of shoes can change the whole look. Match with great accessories and you’re good to go!
