If you think that being uncomfortable in a sky-high towering heel is the only way you can really nail your party ensembles, think again. Bringing the better of two worlds together, where the sophisticated elevation of heeled footwear meets the seamless comfort of flat sandals - are our platform wedge sandals. They’ve ruled the runway charts, they’ve been spotted on every A-list celebrity and now, with CAI doing an entire range of them, you can wear them everywhere - styled in different ways. Here’s how.
What: Pooj in Grey Platform Sandals
With: Palazzos and a fitted top
Perfect for a lazy meal at your favourite restaurant or a long-drawn errand run, these platform wedges make you feel like your feet are enwrapped in a comforting hug. So well cushioned, streamlined and strapped, these pair of women’s platform shoes stand out because of their minimalist elevation that lends your frame a flattering edge, and the unique grey hue that looks more elegant and chic than ever.
What: Black Tie-up Platforms
With: Denim jeans and a silk/linen shirt
Very few footwear styles look as dainty as tie-up sandals, and when they’re available in a platform sandals style, you know you’ve found the trump card. So supportive because of the sandal strap as well as the tie-up element, they delicately balance between looking fashionable and formal at the same time. With a block heeled tie-up heel will look best with outfits that show off your legs just a tad bit, these women’s wedges blend well with pretty much everything, but our favourite combination is to pair them with jeans and an oversized, solid coloured shirt. Wear them to work, or use them as your airport look accessory - you’ll be walking around in them everywhere.
What: Beige Rope Wedges
With: A maxi dress, or a cotton midi, paired with a corset
The perfect way to enjoy sunny days (and pictures) at the beach without feeling short and un-stylish, platform heels are a lifesaver when you’re looking for something stylish on uneven terrain. The rusticity of the rope texture makes these platform wedges our go-to pair for every trip. Throw on your favourite maxi dress or pair a midi skirt with a cute off-shoulder or puff-sleeved corset, and a sunhat and these platform slip-ons later, you’re ready to set major vacation goals.
What: Cushy Strapped Wedges
With: A mini dress
If you’re a fuss-free kind of girl who loves wearing cute dresses that are easy-breezy and comfortable at the same time, we’ve found the perfect pair of wedge shoes for you that will match your vibe. The beige-going-on-tan hue, the rounded double pair of two straps, and the stylish elevation - what’s not to love in this shoe? From a day at the mall to a night of heavy dancing, to an afternoon with your girls - you’ll find yourself reaching for this pair more times than you can count.
What: Peach Raffia Platform
With: Co-ord Sets
No matter which co-ord set you choose to wear, rest assured, these platform slip-ons will look stunning with them.
