Whatever the time of year, we’ve come to rely on platforms to provide a chic – not to mention comfortable – take on heels. For evenings where dancing into the small hours is on the cards, reach for a pair of platforms in velvet, suede or satin. Team with sheer denier tights or a fresh pedicure, depending on the temperature. Not just for after dark, the platform’s walkability means it works equally well for daywear. Reach for leather or linen styles to pair with romantic dresses.
