There was a time in recent history when it seems everyone had a pair of Christian Louboutin Daffodile Pumps.
The hoof like contraptions came in boot, pump, and Mary Jane form, in innumerable colors, fabrications, and patterns.
Starlets were stunting in Daffodiles (and lower priced iterations) until early 2013, but then there was a seismic shift, when platforms were switched out for sole crushing, toe constricting pointed toes, worn flush against the ground.
So are platform heels done for? You guys certainly seem to think so!
In yesterday’s Bombshell post, commenters were pretty vocal about this shoe trend! TheFashionistaChic typed, “Ladies PLATFORMS ENDED IN 2012. One thing I love of about my beloved Rihanna you never have caught her in those hooker shoes. That is all.” Jen added, ” I also concur with the platform sentiments. Let those hooves GO.”
Jessica wasn’t with it! She wrote, “Ummm platforms will never go out of style !” Hello also offered, “I believe nothing goes out of style…wear what you like.”
Even Hervé Leger Bandage Dresses?
I’m more in line with FashionistaChic and Jen! Things come and go! Square and round toes used to be hot. Now, not so much! Same thing with platforms. They’re comfortable, and definitely had their moment. But now you’ll see me wearing my Louboutin So Kate Pumps over my Saint Laurent Tributes (though I haven’t thrown my Tributes away–they might come back!).
What say you? Are Platforms Out of Style?
