Giveaway: $100 Shopbop Gift Card


It’s time to get pumped…literally.

Shopbop, a premier online retailer for fashion forward women, is giving one lucky reader $100 to shop for the latest trends from top designer collections like Catherine Malendrino and Derek Lam.

And what better way to spend your money than on a great pair of platform pumps? A platform pump puts a trendy spin on a classic trend, a must-have for any shoe wardrobe.

Here’s how to wear this trend:

How to Wear a Platform Pump

The best thing about a great platform pump is its versatility (and its ability to give you legs like a supermodel without hitting the gym). Unlike your sky-high gladiator heels, a platform pump can be office appropriate if you wear it the right way.

For a more conservative look, try a close-toed pump in a neutral color like nude or black, like the Illy Hidden Platform Pumps from Modern Vintage Shoes or the Pour La Victiore Irina Suede Pumps. Add opaque tights and a pencil skirt for a polished and professional look.

For a night out, try an edgier style, like a slingback or peep-toe pump in a bold metallic color. We love the West Open Toe Platform Pumps from the Pelle Moda collection. Wear them with your favorite dress or shop the Designer Sale at Shopbop for the perfect party ensemble.
