STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Get Down With '70s Platforms

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Get Down With '70s Platforms

Hippie huts, Farrah Fawcett, Rolling Stones and afros are all markers of the ‘70s. While some of these symbols may be ephemeral, others, such as platform heels, are everlasting emblems.

 Wooden platform heels give an instant boho vibe to any look. Platforms can be dressed up and down so it is no surprise they are on point this season. In warm weather, platform heels can easily be paired with a summery romper just as this Fashionista models. Staying true to ’70s-chic, a tie-dye printed romper enhances these shoes by attesting to one of the most iconic trends from the decade.  By adding a slight twist such as a midline cutout to the simple tie-dye print, the outfit of the day no longer hints hippie but dictates Dior. This black and white romper complements the black open-toed platforms.

Furthermore, this Fashionista bridges history to the present with her floppy hat. Additional trendy accessories, such as a white lace bralette and the black velvet choker, provide the finishing vibe that completes the look from head to toe.

The revolutionary decade of the ‘70s brought forth radical trends that we are still paying homage to today. The stylish era of bohemian babes and haute hippies is back and better than before. Trends are recycled and revamped to give them a modern appeal. Step out in style this summer by purchasing a pair of platform heels.
