All eyes have been on New York Fashion Week since its kick-off on Thursday. Photos have been flooding the internet and a slew of designer and model interviews have been published left and right. September’s fashion shows have definitely set the stage for up and coming pieces, colors, beauty looks, and of course, shoe trends.
Major Shoe Trends: The Flatform
A prominent shoe trend that showcased during this 2014 NYFW is the flat platform, appropriately nicknamed the flatform. Platforms were first popular during the 1970’s, and then the Spice Girls gave them new life in the 1990’s. Now, their revival will continue into Spring 2015. Several styles are being sold at the moment, most of which can be worn for the current fall season.
Nasty Gal’s Shoe Cult Bianca Flatform is the perfect combination of metallic gold and white. Both shades are always trending in the fall and the spring!
Currently, the Faux Croc Flatform Sandals from Forever21 are only available in black, but the color is so versatile you’re sure to get plenty of use out of them.
If you’re looking for a shoe that promises comfort and a bohemian edge, Romwe’s Geometries Print Casual Shoe is a great option. You can style them with a sheer hi-lo dress or a pair them with a pair of denim shorts.
The higher the platform, the better. Jeffrey Campbell’s Argo Platform Sandals boast a three-inch heel height, and the wheat color makes the pair very wearable for both the fall and spring.
If you’re dying to rock your favorite flatforms at work, Forever21’s Embossed Flatform Loafers could be the answer. They’re black and they’re closed-toe, so they follow common fashion guidelines in the workforce.
The Wolf Flatform Sandals are a subtle way to work in the platform trend. Their one-inch height is on the more conservative side, so if you’re uncomfortable with three-inch soles or if you’re trying to work up to that, these are a great starting point.
Remember, just because the platforms are trending for next spring, doesn’t mean you can’t get a jump on them now!
