How to Wear Your Platform Boots for the Fall

September 9, 2011 • By Karla Mae

Platform boots are very trendy this fall as the pomp and flare of the ’70s is back for some much needed retro touch. Platform boots are part of this groovy era and while the summer already saw us wearing wedges and clogs, styling platform boots is a while new different thing. Wondering how you can wear your them? We help by showing you some basics ideas and a look you can easily edit to make it completely your own.

The look we went for is simple so you can pile on more as the season gets a bit more chilly. We paired the Modern Vintage platform boots with a chunky, multi-colored sweater from AIKO to pull off an effortless autumn look. Blank Denim’s skinny corduroy pants show off those platform boots and highlight the sweater. A large but simple Derek Lam leather shoulder bag completes the look and balances large pieces together. Simple but textured jewelry such as this Bone Armor ring gives your whole look some edge.
