If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good pair of shoes. Cool shoes can elevate any look and they have the ability to dress up or down your outfit without much effort. Lately I’ve been on a shoe buying craze, and admittedly I’ve picked up too many pairs of sandals this summer (sorry mom). But more is more and I can’t get enough! Recently I’ve been obsessed with platforms.

Platforms are amazing because they lend the height of a heel without the discomfort. They’re awesome to walk in and are insanely comfortable; they’re basically the lovechild of a wedge and a sneaker. I really like their modern look and I think that they add an unexpected twist to any outfit. They go great with everything and anything and I wear mine all the time.

This Fashionista decided to pair her Dr. Martens platform sandals with a black romper for a monochromatic look. The edginess of her shoes complimented the feminine silhouette of her romper perfectly. Though black on black may seem unbearable to wear during the sunnier seasons, choose pieces like dresses or jumpsuits that are made of lighter fabrics for a breezier feel. To complete her casual look she kept her accessories minimal with a pair of unique glasses and pulled her hair up into a half-up half-down style.

This summer mix up your shoe game and try slipping into a pair of platforms for a look that’s #RAD and on-trend.
