Style File: Ditch the Platforms, Wear Classic Heels

Style File: Ditch the Platforms, Wear Classic Heels

Wear these classics from Manolo Blahnik.

Don't wear these.

What is going on in the world of platform heels?  Why?  Why are so many people wearing shoes that, in my estimation, should be only deemed plausible for hookers and strippers?

Talk about aspirational dressing. Is that what we are no aspiring to? Dear.

This is what you look like in platform heels.

All judgments aside (sort of). What is the allure of a shoe that makes your foot look incredibly clunky while at the same time giving the illusion of having some sort of hoof?  Is this what you want when someone sees you coming?  Not saying it looks exactly like the foot of a pig.  But a major women's magazine published Miss Piggy, herself, wearing the shoes.  The snout doesn’t fall far from the hoof.

So I will suggest possibly dropping the huge platform for the perfect classic Manolo Blahnik, seen at top.
