Besides being practical, these shoes are beautiful and have a pretty modern look. These types of shoes are perfect to wear with short skirts and dresses, but also with shorts, as they visually make your legs more slender and elongated.

Moreover, platform shoes are perfectly combined with an evening dress. When going to the beach, choose platform sandals because you will look taller and thinner thanks to them.

Long dresses and skirts combine very well with shoes, sandals, platforms, especially if the outfit is made of thin translucent tissue.
