Add fashion-forward edge to casual denim with a pair of printed platforms. A standout shoe is the most accessible way to safely incorporate colours into your wardrobe. We have seen the best styles at Stella McCartney, Gucci, and Victoria Beckham (platforms were the Spice Girls trademark, obviously). Apart from clours, platforms of spring 2016 feature contrasting graphic prints and cutouts.
Gladiator sandals of the season wrap around your calf and are punctuated with studs for plenty of attitude. Most styles we have seen on the runway including Dolce & Gabbana and Giambattista Valli feature a flat sole but the silhouette stops high on the calf. Balance the Ancient Greek sandals with mini skirts and dresses.

Simone Rocha, Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger prove that sneakers are not just for the gym anymore. The new white classic sneaker is perfect for teaming with a variety of pant styles. All in all, the sneaker is a #1 accessory to refresh your spring off‑duty looks with a touch of sportswear glam.
The most beautiful flat shoes were seen in Wes Gordon and Edun. Maybe the new styles of spring 2016 made Victoria Beckham ditch her favourite heels as she is seen more and more in flats nowadays. Some styles feature eyelet cut-outs, some pointy toe and all of them feature tons of stability and class.
