As we look ahead to the future of fashion, the S/S 21 couture and F/W 21 runways are predicting some major trends that are about to unfold. Many of them, such as party fashion and saturated shades, are a step away from comfort dressing and really bringing on the fun. Another item to add to your future shopping list? Platform shoes.
Spotted in the collections of designers including Versace, Valentino, and Erdem (to name a few), platforms are really taking hold as a key trend for the coming year, with everything from tall, strappy heels to flatform-style shoes in the mix. Fashion insiders are already early adopters, adding approachable puffy slides, ski-high heels, and more iterations to their latest outfits. Ahead, see the coolest versions from the runways and the Instagram fashion scene to inspire your future shoe wardrobe.
