How to Style Platform Converse Sneakers

I love shoes. Not only do they keep our feet toasty and warm, but they complement whatever we wear them with. Platform converses are my favorite sneakers. They're super trendy and a bit edgy at the same time, not to mention comfortable. I've never owned a classic pair of Converse, so I can't compare these shoes to those, but I think that because of the platform, these shoes have a lot of extra cushion, and they make me feel like I'm walking on marshmallows. I'm going to show you six different ways that you can style them.

Blazer chic

This outfit has a super cute, edgy, chic vibe. It is great for either going out to dinner or a night with the girls. The dress is actually a black maxi dress folded over to make a mini dress, and on top of it, I'm wearing a black blazer. The Converses give the outfit an even more chic look, and the fact that they're platform already means that you don't have to wear heels.

Everyday cool

This is a more everyday look, something street and casual. I started with these jeans (which did I mention make my butt look amazing!) and threw on a white tank top. The outfit is a really simple look that is easy to recreate. You could always dress it up by adding a hat and a long trench coat or a chunky cardigan.

Mini dress

The outfits in this lookbook are either all black or have a lot of black incorporated into them. I feel that black and white clothes work the best with these Converses. Here I'm wearing a cute mini pinafore dress with a little slit at the bottom and tie straps. You could always throw an oversized jacket over the dress as well. This combination of platform shoes and a mini skirt makes my legs look super long, which I love.

Boyfriend hoodie

Here I decided to go with a classic all-black look. Black is my favorite color, and I'm a bit obsessed with it. I think that it looks very flattering and I feel very confident in it. I started with an oversized boyfriend-style hoodie which is super comfy and cozy, and I paired it with these split hem leggings.

I wanted to style an outfit that was a little more sporty and athleisure. Here I'm featuring biker shorts which I'm wearing with a crop top and a white sweater. I think that this outfit is a super cute way to make Converses sporty. The Yankees baseball cap is a perfect accompaniment to the outfit.

Black trench

With this look, I went with a black ankle-length trench coat, black leather pants, and a black cut-out bodysuit. I love floor-sweeping trench coats; they're the best to bundle up in. The triangle slit neckline of the bodysuit highlights my chest area and gives me a bit of cleavage. 

That's the six looks that I have for you. I'm 5'1,' and as I mentioned, a great thing about these platform converse sneakers is that extra bit of height that they give you, which means you don't have to wear heels. Whether you want to go for a casual athleisure look, something a bit edgier, or something dressed up, these shoes will complement whatever you wear them with. They're comfy, practical, and trendy at the same time.
