Fashion Editor's Picks: Elevate Your Style With These Flatform Shoes

In this bi-weekly column, we spotlight the most covetable pieces to add to your wardrobe.

Welcome to a season of long legs or at least the illusion of having them. Cue the lanky silhouettes seen at Miu Miu and the floor-gazing column dresses that walked the runway at Fendi – they all seem to suggest that spindly gams are a prerequisite. The good news is that designers are offering an instant style hack in the form of towering and chunky flatforms this season that instantly elevate your stature while promising you comfort. Plus, the footwear’s sophisticated and glamorous details this season – from pearls at Simone Rocha to raffia braiding at Stella McCartney – mean the look is more chic than riotous ’90s raver. Browse the gallery above for the various flatform styles to match your outfit.
