Yay or Nay: Flatforms

There is only two types of people in the world; the ones that love flatforms and the ones that don't.  But I'm a 'try new things' kind of girl.  That my friends, is my failed attempt to incorporate Britney Spears into my post.  I guess I tried? .. Anyways, the topic of choice is flatforms.  I remember when I was about four years old and the biggest trend was to have flatform shoes!  I envied my sister because she owned a pair with a black platform and rainbow straps that she would wear e v e r y w h e r e.  That is until the strap ripped off while she was walking during a family trip to the ROM and we had to make an emergency stop at Bi Way to buy her a new pair.  Now that is a story I will save for later.  Don't have a clue what I'm on about?  Think Spice Girls.  Yes, those shoes that were two or probably more inches high with very little arch.

Worldwide, bloggers and fashionistas alike have been strutting them everywhere they go.  They have been seen on catwalks for many designer brands like Prada and Celine.  It is one of those items that you can wear casually or to make a classy outfit look modern.  That being said, it is very easy to make them look horrid and very unappealing.  It all depends on how you style it.  

I love how Kavita has styled her sandal flatforms, it ties the whole outfit together and she definitely makes a statement with the metallic shade.
Rihanna is definitely a fan of flatforms as she incorporates it into her everyday outfits. 
Various street stylers wear them immaculately and definitely add their person touches!

My verdict: Yay!  Perfect way to get some height comfortably and look stylish at the same time. 

What do you think, is this just a reoccurring fad or do you think it is here to stay? Yay or Nay?  Let me know in the comments below!

I like platforms when they're in sandals but not so much in sneakers or anything that's close-toed
