Platform Boots

WEARING PLATFORM BOOTS

Finding the best boots is essential at this time of year and platform shoes have been on (and off) the runways for several seasons now.. Platform boots can be a treasure for people who are a little bit on the extravagant side. But also for those of you who prefer the classy look you can find something suitable for you. Platform boots come in such a variety of styles and so they can fit many different looks. I prefer the platform to be high enough to equal out the slant of the foot so I get the height but not the angle of extreme discomfort you get from traditional heels.

Platform boots look especially good with light dresses or skirts. I like wearing platform boots with knee high socks or tights. It will add some rock’n’roll accent to your feminine image. Also you can wear them with shorts and jeans, jackets and pullovers. Keep it simple: The boots are striking on their own and don't require much else. 

What I will tell you is this. If you are considering, try them on. They are basically heeled slippers. Block heel, minimal foot arch and hefty platform plus a narrow ankle that disappears under your clothes. They make us look taller and our legs look slimmer, which is why we're taking tips from fashion bloggers and street style stars on how to style a pair for an edgy look.

How to wear Long sleeve Dresses


Long-Sleeve Dresses Are Still Cute

Whether you’re a fan of the trend or not, there’s no denying that long sleeve dresses are everywhere this season. I love them because you can skip an extra layer like a cardigan or blazer, it is also a versatile addition to any woman's wardrobe. The long-sleeves are ideal for winter, as well as for transitional weather days. 

Long-sleeve dresses make for automatic outfits, keep you warm, and cover your arms if you happen to dislike them. Paired with tights, a chic coat and a pair of booties, a long-sleeve dress (or three) is essential for a balanced winter wardrobe. Check out my favourites here.

Metallics seem to be remaining strong for spring/summer '17. These high-shine shades look amazing with a tan and give you a seriously sexy poolside look. 

There's no shortage of slinky silver swimsuits, sexy gold bikinis, and streamlined sporty options on sale. The metallic sheen will reflect just the right amount of light to capture other people’s attention without totally blinding them.
