Greetings from the past
But first - a bit of history. Putting a pair of shoes on a high platform, we can not imagine how many centuries ago they invented such a sole. The actors of ancient theaters wore curbs on the cork soles, so that what was happening on the stage could be seen from the far rows. It was light shoes, in which you can quickly move around the stage.
In the Ancient East, such shoes were made from wood and called geta. In European countries, shoes with thick soles were worn in the Middle Ages. In France, until now, national costumes are supplemented with wooden clogs. In Venice, the beauties simply had to walk on a high platform. The city on the water was famous for its terrible mud in the streets. The height of the socles( the so-called Venusian shoes) reached 40 cm. The mods moved on foot exclusively accompanied by cavaliers.
Always at the peak of the fashion
Later, the platform for a long time gave way to the heel. Only in the XX century, unusual shoes with thick soles returned to fashion. It has evolved and improved. There were models on a wedge, on a solid thick platform or on a heel.
Various models have found their admirers among women of different ages and tastes.
In a fashionable appearance, everything is balanced, balanced. Bright details are compensated for by the muffled shapes and tones of other accessories. A large platform is a challenge, a desire to attract attention. This step imposes responsibility on the woman of fashion - everything must be conditioned in accordance with the laws of taste and norm. First of all, women choose low shoes because they give them confidence. But the tall slender builds are more suitable for wedges without thickening or low hairpins.
With what and how is sandals combined on the platform?
You can safely wear trousers of any cut with shoes and sandals on a platform or wedge. But a skirt with such shoes will not suit everyone. Full legs on a massive platform will look even bigger. The gait will lose its "flightiness".
The basic law of fashion is a sense of proportion and a sense of beauty. To comply with these postulates, you need to remember some tips for choosing sandals on the platform. This shoe is popular because it is comfortable. Smooth outsole adds growth, and distributes the load on the foot evenly. The legs are less tired also because the models on the thick sole are wide, do not squeeze the leg like graceful boats.
If you want to wear them in a formal setting - at work or at a business meeting in a summer cafe, pick up a platform not higher than 5 cm This is the neutral version, which is suitable for girls with "good" growth and shapely legs..In addition to office clothes, you can complement them with a light sarafan or modest shorts.
If a girl has short legs or a small height - do not despair. All can be fixed with a high platform with a heel of 8-10 cm. Sandals are suitable for a long party or a long walk. They are more stable and more comfortable than high pins.
All models with a heel above 10 cm refer to shoes for evening ceremonial exits. For each day, they should not be chosen. Remember the sense of proportion!
Remember the importance of color
When choosing a pair in a store, you need to determine when to wear it. If it's casual shoes, then neutral colors should be preferred. Agree, under each summer kit it is difficult to choose the appropriate footwear. And sandals on a platform with a heel( photo) or without it, made in classical color, will harmoniously complement any ensemble.
Beige, the color of the body will make the shoes the continuation of the foot, and lengthen it. All shades of white are welcome in the summer. They are more appropriate on a warm day than black or blue.
black platform sandals are more suited to the evening together, and even then, not to everyone. They give the image an effect, a charm, even some extravagance. But such legs, for sure, will not remain unnoticed.
You can sum up what was said - in everyday summer clothes, shoes should be of high quality, but should not attract special attention to themselves. Hence, the colors should be light, without a pattern. This pair is suitable for work, for shopping, walking around the city.
If you want to emphasize the beauty of your lovely legs, you want the looks of men to be attracted to them, safely wear brightly decorated sandals. Choose models with applications, crystals, other accessories. Bright blue, yellow, red wedges or high sandals will be the highlight of your image.
Tip! Remember the simple rule - a thick heel is suitable for the full legs. Thin legs look better on stilettos!
