For an even more bold look, pull out those platform boots and throw on a dress for some nice contrast – so you can feel girly and grungy all at the same time.

3 Patterned pants, collared shirt and knit sweater

If you are feeling the sweater weather, but still want to style your platforms in all your vintage glory, go for a bold, patterned pants with a collared shirt under your comfy, knit sweater.

And if you want more color, you can always throw in those red platforms you have shoved in the back of your closet, just like this look above.

4 Overalls

Overalls are hot right now and super comfy. But how can you jazz them up a bit so you don’t look quite like a hillbilly redneck wannabe? Platforms. This look above screams throwback, but it also screams style.

Pairing your overalls with a striped undershirt gives it a more classic look, and you can pair your colorful platforms with it to have just a tad more fun with your throwback Friday inspired look.

If you would rather go beautifully bold with your clothes, go with a simple, black platform boots to pair with your ensemble so your clothes can stand out even further.

Pairing them with thigh high socks gives them a more casual, fun look, yet still allows the focus to be on your outfit.

8 White platform wedges

9 Black and white lace dress and black tights

If you love classic looks – lace, dresses, crochet, or just an understated dress that hugs your curves, throwing on some strappy platforms adds just that little extra pizzazz to put your outfit over the edge.

10 Oversized sweaters

If you love big, baggy sweaters like me, this one is for you. You do not have to always wear jeans and Vans with your huge, fuzzy sweaters, you can strap on some platform heels after you throw on a pair of leggings and look just as good, but probably even better.

11 Mixed textures

Feel free to mix textures. If you just want neutrals, but still want to have some fun with your black platform boots, pair them with textured skirts, tops, and jackets like this blogger did. It will still be simple, but it will also help you stand out from the crowd.

12. Graphic bomber jacket, ripped jeans and t-shirt

Everyone loves good platform sneakers, but a lot of us just sit and stare at ours lovingly because we have no idea how to wear them – we just bought them because they are cute. But honestly, you can wear them with almost anything. But the best look for them is something like the casual look above with ripped jeans and t-shirts.

13 Sweater and mini skirt

Pair your grunge platform boots with a mini skirt, tights, and some casual tops or sweaters. You can make this look bolder like she did by wearing a leather mini skirt, textured or patterned tights, and a colored top. This look takes major guts, but the end style is over the top cute and will definitely boost your confident from all the compliments you receive.

14 Go all black

Going all black is always an option in my look, especially with platform heels. Your all black ensemble will help you seem taller and thinner, and if you want to stand out more you can just throw on a colorful jacket, necklace, or paint on a bold lip.

15 Denim shorts

Be daring and bold with some short shorts, sparkles and platforms. Even if you do not want the sparkles, you can still throw on some cute denim shorts, or really any pattern or material short. Pairing them with your platforms will make both pieces stand out.
