We are falling head-over-heels with all the incredible shoe trends that we’ve been seeing lately. If you’re not confident on a pair of skates or too minimalist for pearl pumps, there’s still a way you can get in on the latest in flamboyant footwear fashion: platforms. 

We thought Gucci’s epic platform sneakers were just a fad, but with the revival of ‘70s trends across the board, the stacked shoe style has remained on the rise thanks to certain fashionistas embracing the look to keep the momentum up: from Cardi B’s monochrome take on the Gucci look to Chiara Ferragni’s cool-girl silver sneakers – even Princess Olympia of Greece celebrated her 21st birthday in a pair of rainbow platforms tucked beneath a full-length tulle gown. 

Other brands have been very creative with their designs as well, adding the ‘70s sole onto everything from ballet flats to sandals, proving, in more ways than one, that this is the ultimate style-elevator. 

Without a doubt our favorite pair are the glittery ones from Gucci that will add a sparkle to any day-to-night look. Dolls Kill designed an all-pink version which are perfect for adding a pop of color to a monochrome ensemble, while Prada’s offering will inject a playful element into one of this season’s must-have plaid suits. Zara put a platform finish on simple sandals: pair yours with long socks and a mini skirt for a real retro finish, or beneath a flow evening dress paired with a biker jacket for that princess-turned-badass look.
