For a fashion editor, there is no better feeling than watching a trend start to simmer and then erupt to a roiling boil. Over the summer, I started to spot more platform boots in the market and was anxious to see if the runway trend would actually come to fruition this fall; sure enough, it did. This iconic style from the '60s, '70s, and even the '90s adds just the right amount of character to any fall look you have hanging in your wardrobe. Take it from the street style set and accept that when it comes to how to wear these boots, the sky is really the limit.
Enhancing everything from fancy cocktail dresses to leggings and back again, platform boots have proven there isn't really an ensemble they can't make cooler, and one look at the outfits from fashion month below will confirm exactly that.

Style Tip: Make a formal dress feel a bit more casual by pairing it with platform boots. Finish off the look with a contemporary handbag and you're pretty much set for any outing under the sun.
