Chunky Heels Are In Fashion For 2011 Hey there fashionistas! Don’t think twice about it, get to those vintage resale boutiques and start rummaging for some authentic platforms or grab yours from Prada YSL this summer! Consider yourself in the know – the chunky, high heels are back and smoking hot fashion for 2011 this Summer! Feel free to put those stilettos on the shelf and get into the new fashionable retro heel. The chunky platforms which used to be praised back in the 60s fashion and 70s fashion have made a powerful comeback. Colorful platform high heeled shoes should definitely be on your radar right now.
We’ve spotted Diane Kruger sporting some pretty awesome strappy suede platforms on the at a recent Hollywood event. We also spotted Fearne Cotton wearing some thin strappy wooden heel platforms with red soles that worked perfect on the red carpet. And last we caught MaryKate Olsen all sporting chunky Summer heels paired with colorful bottoms that we love — we loved the look so much we added them to our own wish list. Thanks to strappy details, they have sexy appeal, while the thick platform caters to both our fashionable and functional selves. The thicker heels are more supportive — forget that kind of teetering that seems to go hand-in-hand with stilettos.
Nobody wears a trend like Kim Kardashian and the blue velvet strappy flatforms are no exception. The reality mogul paired her retro heels with a neon yellow, peasant sleeve mini dress and hair tied in a high bun. Something about Kim just makes you want to stand up and take notice. She is polished pulled together and one of favorites to watch working a trend. Right now we’re loving the safari-inspired versions by Proenza Schouler and the espadrilleinspired YSL version. You can find this latest fashion and others like it at Heels.com. Are you fashionable enough to sport this throwback trend from the seventies fashion? We certainly hope so, besides there’s nothing like trying a new fashion trend during summertime. Short shorts, mini dresses and lot’s of color is just what the doctor ordered. It’s a fun time for fashion, so express yourself!
