After Versace’s famous pink platform shoe took the Fall 2022 Runway by storm, the trending platform silhouette has made it’s way into our summer outfits via the platform sandal. We love platform sandals for the magical leg lengthening effect, adding a unique silhouette and a bit of cheeky modern trend into our outfits.

Thought platforms were uncomfortable? Or maybe the silhouette just wasn’t for you? Not anymore. We’ve got our favorite platforms in every shape imaginable ranging from the casual comfort of Dr. Martens to the ultraglam event faves from Reformation. Check out our favorite ways to wear platform sandals with the following outfit ideas!

The Classic Platform Sandal

Let’s start with the most classic, versatile platform sandal. This is our #1 pick for essential platform shoes! If you’re just wanting to dip your toe (pun intended!!!) into this trend, you’ve GOT to try a basic slide-on platform sandal in black. It’s easy to match with your outfits and gives you the leg-accentuating effect without being too trend-forward.
We love how this piece is simultaneously laid-back and elevated. Great for date outfits, outings and in casual work spaces such as startups and creative offices – this isn’t the pair of shoes that will stay in your back closet.

Strappy Urban Platform Sandal Outfit Ideas

We love two-strap platforms for their urban street-style appeal! Balance casual with chic by pairing this piece with a dress or trousers, or keep the look ultracasual in jeans or shorts. Many variations are known to be comfort first – making this platform style more accessible to those who aren’t used to the platform shoe style. If you’re a city walker, this may just become your go-to weekender shoe!

Party Ready Platform Sandals

A fabulous ode to the Spice Girls is afoot in recent outfits everywhere… Summer 2022 is YOUR time to strut into the party wearing chunky, colorful platform sandals!!! Perfect for date night, outings with friends, social media postings and parties alike – these shoes were made to be seen.
Are loud shoes not your thing? For a more subtle twist (yet unsparing on all the fun), we’ve got your back. Selecting a platform shoe with unexpected, subdued colors or interesting ridges still provides that added pop of texture or color to an outfit that is perfectly right for summer!

Espadrille Platform Sandals

Espadrille platforms are the quintessential summer shoe for beachside city walks, resorts, beach weddings, date night and summer outings! We love this shoe paired with a sundress and straw bag. These shoes are also great with jeans, jumpsuits, flowy shorts and linen trousers!
