Final Touch: Platforms. Not just for parties.
It wasn’t just Cinderella who wished she could wear her princess gear on non-ball-going days. Perhaps the Fairy Godmother finally heard our prayers. Say hello to 2014’s answer to the ultimate question: “When will I ever wear it again?”
It goes like this: invited to a formal event, wedding (or 5) this summer? Got a dinner date (hopefully 5)? Here’s a way to blend the two – handsome prince, optional.
1) Take your favourite culottes or can’t-live-without-them skinny jeans.
2) Add a pair of pump-up-the-volume, white t-strap platforms.
3) Top with a casual “haut” – a favourite T, floral blouse or basic men’s tank top.
5) Complete with chain-strap purse in summer white, worn cross-body.
Get inspired with a page from Taylor Swift, Alexa Chung and Kate Beckinsale’s high/low looks, and in no time, you’ll master the art of the mixing casual with anything but. Better yet, shopping for wedding #4 (or is it #7?) will be 10 times the fun.
