|Four Outfits With Platform Boots: Fashion Inspiration by gabriellad(f): 4:13pm On Aug 13, 2022
The platform boot was created in the 1970s but had a resurgence during the 2010s. The love of the 70s style became the backdrop of the next couple of years in fashion. Until it slowed down again.
In recent years, love for the iconic platform silhouette has returned, and does not seem like it is turning back anytime soon. You cannot walk down the street and not see someone wearing a platform boot of some kind.
This is ultimately because of the versatility of platform boots. With hundreds of ways to style this icon of a shoe, let’s discuss just four outfits you can wear with them.
Do You Want to Rave?
Who says you can only wear rave attire to a festival? There are tons of rave styles that can be twisted into something street worthy. Usually festivals and raves have a theme, but now the creativity can be in your hands.
Rave style has changed over the years, the 80s styles were different from the 90s and 2000s. This gives you a playground of decades of material to choose from. Lets create an outfit now, the setting is a glow in the dark festival and you want to stand out.
Let’s start with the platform boots, of course, they will not be just black. There needs to be some sort of color on them, preferably a rainbow design or fluorescent highlights. Usual rave attire includes some sort of crop top or bikini top. So we’ll go with a glow in the dark two piece bikini to fit the theme.
Silver jewelry will be a good complement to these but the star of the show will be the glow in the dark makeup. Lastly to finish off the look will be a fanny pack, big enough to fit some personal items while you dance your heart away.
Lets Keep It Casual
Sometimes it is best to keep it comfy and casual and that is okay. Thanks to the versatility of the platform boot it does not matter. Since we are going to keep it casual this one can be simple.
Starting with an all black platform ankle boot, and a nice pair of blue jeans. These two staples work great together and can not go wrong. The jeans can be baggy or tight and should work, but let’s go with baggy.
For the top, your favorite cropped hoodie that you wore hundreds of times. Not much to this fit, but it is not a fancy dinner or a party you are attending trying to impress. Running to the store or completing some errands fit that could be worn everyday.
Who Wants Some Color?
It’s time to pull out that dress, and shake it up with your platform boots. Luckily these boots don’t only come in black and it is good to add some color to your collection. A pinkish platform boot will be on your feet.
This paired with a floral knee length dress, or polka dot will stand out. If the pinks do not match that is okay. As for the jewelry, silver rings and necklaces would be adequate, but if you wanted a bright color to stand out from the monochromatic look that is alright as well.
If this is too simple, throwing on some black or white stockings could add a color break in between the two pinks. When starting outfits with your boots it is easy to look at the trends that are currently going on. Once you figure out the silhouette you want to recreate, looking in your closet and picking clothes should be fun.
It’s Getting Cold
Even when it gets cold it can be a platform boot moment. Thanks to the different shapes and sizes platforms can get, your foot can always be warm and not too cold just in case your area of the world is freezing during the winter.
This outfit will be a little more grunge than the others, sporting all black with silver details. The platform boots this time, have metal chain accessories attached to them for an extra pop. Match that with black skinny jeans to keep with the black monochrome look.
A black sweater or hoodie will be the top but will not be the star of the show. The main piece will be a black trench coat over the top. Trench coats are a great layering piece that completes the monochrome fit. Finish the outfit with a black purse and your favorite sunglasses then you are done.
Creating outfits should be a fun process, whether you are creating a new one from scratch or you are trying to match new pieces in your existing closet. Everyone has a certain piece of clothing or a pair of shoes they never get to wear.
Sometimes just trying on clothes gets your creative style to show. Platform boots have the ability to go with many outfits and combinations. Making it one of the most versatile footwear in style right now.
Adding a pop of color, if never bad or maybe you want to rock a monochrome look. Switching up your style and showing off your wardrobe is the most fun about dressing up.Read more at:white formal dresses australia | black formal dresses australia
