Hello fashion lovers!
The spring weather is slowly making its appearance this season, but soon it will be here to stay! And don’t forget the summer heat is just around the corner! Time to drag those spring fling dresses out of your closet and pack up the heavy sweaters and boots for the season! What a relief!
As I was recently flipping through some recent trends in fashion magazines for the spring, I came across a trend that broke on the runways of many designers for Spring 2011 collections, and I have to say I’m not sure what I think? Take a look…
It’s called the “Flatform.” A cross between the beloved ballet flat and the easy-to-walk in platform wedge heel. It allows the average woman, who may be afraid of donning the ever-tricky stiletto or platform heel to give herself a little height without the fear of falling over. It has a flat bottom, just raised a few inches to give the wearer height and add a little feminine flair to a spring dress.
Now while you may be thinking, “What’s the difference from my wedge platforms??” Well, the Flatform has a more “ballet flat” feel to them, giving the bottom of the shoe a completely flat look, just on a platform. It still makes the wearer feel as if she’s wearing her favorite ballet flats. Many designers such as Derek Lam, Michael Kors, Prada and Chanel have given their flatforms different looks ranging from a wedge look to a sandal, to even a regular boat shoe.
The easiest way to wear a Flatform is with a flirty skirt or lace top, or even a cotton dress…all from Joey Eric boutique, of course!! JE has also got some FABULOUS new jewelry in for the spring, so check it out! You need some bright, funky jewelry to accompany your fashion forward Flatforms!!
So, what do you think?? Ready to rock your Flatforms for spring and summer?! Let me know what you think..are these a Fashion DO or DON’T??
Until next time…LOVES
