When was the last time you busted out your platform heels? The shoe trend definitely saw a major resurgence in the early 2000s, but Jennifer Lopez is here to tell you that it can look thoroughly modern in 2020. Photographed in Los Angeles, J.Lo wore a patterned coat and matching wide-leg trousers with a simple white tank top, but it was her shoes, in particular, that caught our eye. She wore the sky-high Charlotte Olympia Dolly Plateau Pumps ($486), which renewed our interest in the trend. 

In case you need more convincing, this isn't the first time Lopez has endorsed the platform trend. Last summer, she wore the warm-weather version of the look: platform wedges. (Reese Witherspoon and Dakota Johnson are also fans.) If you're ready to jump on board, plenty of brands are churning out cool options, from Schutz and Rachel Zoe to Prada and Giuseppe Zanotti. Scroll down to see how J.Lo styled her platform pumps, and shop the look for yourself.

Erin Fitzpatrick
Senior News Editor

Erin got her start as a Who What Wear intern over 12 years ago—back when the site only published a single story per day. (Who What Wear has since increased that number twentyfold.) She graduated magna cum laude from USC, which is how she ended up moving to Los Angeles from her hometown of San Diego. In college, she also interned at Refinery29, where she was promoted to editorial assistant and then assistant editor. After nearly three years at R29, she came back to WWW in 2016, where she currently holds the title of senior news editor (as well as the unofficial title of resident royal expert—in case you haven't noticed her numerous Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton stories). She spends her days trying to incorporate her idols, Anna Wintour and Roger Federer, into as many stories as possible. Outside of work, she loves tennis, classic rock, traveling, and smothering her dog with affection.
