Hands up if you’re totally digging the 70s revival trend for spring/summer 15. When the warmer days finally come round, you’ll want to start channelling something new, and that’s always a perfect excuse for a little wardrobe update, but for now we’re talking new shoes. And I’m sure you’re all up for that.
High street favourite Topshop have answered our prayers in possibly the best selection of platform heels we’ve seen in a long time. And the best part? Any woman can snap up a pair because they have styles to suit all tastes and needs.
So whether you’re still stuck in spring/summer 14 pastel haven, or want to channel your inner hippy in some psychedelic wedges, you needn’t look elsewhere because Fashion North have selected the top five platform heels to see you into a seriously on-trend 70s summer.
First on the list are these WALLFLOWER Wedge Sandals, £52, which will have you dreaming of summer beach holidays the moment you put them on your feet. These tan beauties are 100% leather too, so don’t be afraid to make the most out of them.
Next up are the WALLFLOWER Print Wedges, £52, in the most kitsch of floral prints. Unleash your inner 70s style in these platforms by teaming them with the new season’s flared jeans, and maybe a clashing flower power blouse to throw in the mix.
But fear not plain Janes, as the LEMONY Chunk Platform Sandals, £50, may just be right up your street. Who needs a popping print anyway? when you have these patent burgundy platforms that’ll do all the talking? Wear these day or night, dressed up or down – they’re a staple for your warmer wardrobe ahead.
Our fourth pick were truly made for summer nights out with friends. The LIMBO Snake-Effect Platform Sandals, £52, could be practically camouflaged when worn on a picturesque beach somewhere sunny – they combine splashes of aqua, bronze,brown and gold perfectly in three inches, the perfect height for those who aren’t the most confident in a pair of heels.
Lastly, all you pastel fans can rejoice because the LAUNCH Platform Sandals, £48, bring a refreshing take on the 70s trend in the cutest of powder pink hues. With a 5.5 inch heel, big and bold really is beautiful this season.
