I must admit that while I am not an advocate for sneakers, the concept of platform sneakers has grown upon me. If you are like me, you may be a bit stumped when it comes to applying this aesthetic to your wardrobe. You may also have questions as to how to make this look a bit more ‘seasoned’ while avoiding looking like an extra from a Disney movie.
My personal favorites (regarding style and overall design concept) stem from Jeffrey Campbell’s version; a platform heel that shows more shoe and less sole.

For those who love the concept of obvious display in sole height, these perforated sneakers are your ideal.
Jil Sander $340 (www.saksfifthavenue.com)
They can be paired with jeggings, skinny jeans, skirts and casual jumpsuits. Mix and dress up before stepping outside. As with any other trend, I encourage to experiment, edit and above all else, make it your own.
