Our obsession this spring is platform slingback pumps. A ‘must have’ trend mingles with a classic style. A slingback lends a look of sophistication and class while the platform takes the style to the next level. The good thing about choosing a shoe with a platform is that you can reach for that 5” heel without breaking your back; the platform aids in style without sacrificing comfort.

When heading to the office or an important meeting, think about keeping it simple. Choose a pair with a closed toe in a neutral color to wear with a tailored pant suit or a wrap dress. A perfect example would be the Aria by Pour La Victoire in black patent leather. Adds some serious height with a 4 ¾” heel but refines the look with a 1 ¼” hidden platform.

We all know that the spring holidays are around the corner and we have to look our best in front of our friends and family. When zipping up that floral dress or putting on that asymmetrical skirt, don’t leave the house without your platform slingbacks! Add a burst of pastel color with the Pour La Victoire Aria in Aqua or Sand or try the Gastone Lucioli 2016 in Lavender Suede.

Dining out on a Saturday night is the perfect excuse to strap on a pair of slingback pumps! For an edgy look, wear the Sam Edelman Novato with a pair of dark wash skinny jeans and a bold top. With so many colors to choose from, pick the Novato that best complements your style.

Whether they are open toe, closed toe, peep toe, suede, leather, patent leather, linen or glitter, it doesn’t matter! Remember to go for that higher heel when there is a platform involved. For sophisticated occasions, select a pair with a hidden platform, for a refined look. And when heading out for a night on the town, go for a bolder style and color. Don’t be afraid of this sky-strapping trend.
