Trend Report: Platform Sandals

Every girl loves to wear heels, and adding even just a few extra inches can transform an outfit from blah to glam. However, high heels are insanely hard to walk in; nobody wants to walk through the city in them or stumble all over themselves at the beach. Luckily, there's a new way to get those few extra inches while still maintaining your ability walk: platform shoes!
This winter, we saw a ton of them; creepers were all the rage, ankle boots grew higher, and people were sporting sneaker wedges everywhere! That trend's translating into summer wear beautifully with platform sandals. Everywhere from Target to Miu Miu is coming up with new designs. There are so many different ways to wear this trend as you can see from above. Tan and cork platforms look amazing with funky outfits whereas black creepers complement grungier outfits perfectly. White strappy platforms look super cute with girly ensembles, but they're casual enough to go with an everyday leggings-sweatshirt combo.

Here are some fab platform options for you guys to browse:
