Shoe Trend We’re Loving: Flatforms

2 years ago written by

The Spring 2016 runways were a stampede of chunky-soled shoes, from disco-inspired platforms to bohemian wedges and clogs. We’re all on board with the ’70s revival that’s happening of late, and these flatforms (with the height of heels and the comfort and practicality of flats) will take any haute hippie style to seriously chic heights.

Though they might not look all that much at first glance, but they definitely have a tendency to grow on you. And there is literally no limit to the ways you can wear them – dress them up, or dress them down, flatforms will be up for any challenge! Like platforms, but with a uniform height across the sole, high flatform shoes can feel a little kitsch, chunky and crazy to the more minimalist and classic among us. Luckily, fashion bloggers are paving the way for Spring’s cool new shoe, inspiring easy ways to make the style chic.

For a 70’s inspired look, pair your playful flatform sandals with a fringe skirt or wide-leg pants, and finish it off with a breezy bohemian top (or an ultra femme crochet top).

You can get a pair of cool flatform sneakers like Miley Cyrus. These are the height of effortless chic, believe us. And sneakers never ever do go out of fashion, so you’re safe on that account too!

Or you can go for the perfect “boy meets girl” look and wear your flatform kicks with a cute skirt.

For a formal look, wear your flatforms with well-fitted cigarette pants and a crisp blazer or a tailored dress (plain or printed is entirely up to you!).

It can even be the go-to pair of shoes when you’re dressing up for a night out – leather jacket and the works.
