Question: I am wondering about buying the new Aldo platform stiletto in black. How do I wear it more often than just in the evening?

Answer: Platforms can be worn day and night with ease. For day, there are numerous chic options. For a luxe grunge look, pair the heel with a black opaque tight (plain or textured) and wear with a turtleneck knit dress- patent instantly gives a chic touch to knits and other textures. The heel also works with sophisticated silky jewel tone blouses and slouchy wide leg trousers.

Patent platforms add polish to 9-to-5 looks as well: A slim-fitting gray pencil skirt and little jacket get an instant update with a patent heel, just be sure to wear them with a nude leg or black tights. For a hip downtown look, wear the heels with a skinny grey denim jean, topped with a voluminous white cotton blouse and a cropped jacket.
