It’s hard to think about a time where platform ankle boots didn’t rule the fashion scene. Jumping from one decade to the next, platform boots are the one signature style that seems to keep cycling through. Platform ankle boots styles are always being redefined and revamped, which makes it extremely difficult to resist a shoe that is not only in tune with what everyone is wearing with a blast from the past. In fact, it makes us want to go ahead and reach for platform ankle boots even more!
It’s no wonder why every A-list celebrity from Margot Robbie to Hailey Baldwin is rocking platform ankle boots in such a cool girl way. So what better way to jump on the boot bandwagon than by opting for the coolest, It Girl-approved style? For those looking to step up their shoe game with an option with a little bit of ’90s grunge but made modern for today, these L.K. Bennett booties are the obvious choice!
It’s rare to use the words cute, chunky and comfy all in the same sentence. Call it the perfect trifecta because the Kimberly ankle boots perfectly mash up all three features fabulously.
The L.K. Bennett Kimberly Black Platform Ankle Boots are the solution to adding a bit of height while staying comfortable — and trendy! One of the most problematic parts about wearing stiletto-like sandals or heels is the simple fact our feet ache in pain for days to follow. While our feet will never understand why they suddenly start to hurt, our brains surely do! When it comes to shoes with thin heels, they lack the necessary support our feet need.
But these sleek L.K. Bennett stunners don’t sacrifice style for comfort because these well-crafted platforms are nothing short of an ideal solution.
Crafted from Nappa stretch leather, the super-soft material is just as comfortable as it looks. The chunky, thick sole is the ultimate two-in-one. Besides giving an added element of edge, the platform sole actually works double-duty to provide the necessary support our feet actually needs. It goes without saying that when it comes to these ankle boots, we’ll definitely be on trend and strutting in style.
With a total resurgence of all things ’90s on the up-and-up, there surely is no other era to follow when looking to style these perfect platforms. In fact, when executing an ensemble to perfection that reflects the period where grunge reigned supreme, the avenues are endless for styling.
For those looking to make this blast from the past just as fashion-forward in present day, the most obvious pairing would be a turtleneck, leather skirt and a plaid flannel on top. Reach for a pair of sheer tights to wear underneath the leather skirt. Add a pair of all white socks that are scrunched up over tights. Continue to layer on the look with a longer coat or jacket, like a trench or even a tailored peacoat. Finish off the look with a medium or oversized pair of sunnies! Talk about effortless edge and elegance in seconds!
For those looking for a more classic and modern twist on these otherwise edgier boots, we’ve got it covered! Why not turn to Duchess Kate for a classic, more modern style. After all, L.K. Bennett seems to be one of her favorite shoe brands!
Look for more tailored pieces such as a well-fitted pair of denim or even a casual (but tailored!) pair of pants. Continue to create a consistent classic style by opting for a silk blouse, button-up top or even this always chic cardigan! Honestly, any one of those options would be nothing short of regal. Keep it simple with a camel-colored trench coat on top! By pairing the platform ankle boots with a much more toned-down ensemble, it instantly creates some balance throughout the entire look.
Best of all, these perfect platforms can be paired with just about anything. In fact, when looking for nothing short of a last-minute, fashion-forward item, these boots are the secret to styling success.
