10 Perfect Platforms Under $200!

If my mom could’ve predicted the fashion future, I’m sure she would have liked to save me a few hundred dollars that I now spend on vintage trends that are back in style. In 2011, we got a little taste of the platform’s arrival in the form of a flatform; essentially, a platform with a sandal on top. Perfect, if you ask me. And even though the flatform is still around, this fall the original platform is making a comeback … a huge comeback. From Steve Madden to Forever 21, the platforms are a trend not to be taken lightly.

With its high demand this upcoming season, the prices for this beloved ’70s trend are pretty steep. For those of you who are holding on tight to your wallets this fall but also want to join in on this high wave, here are 10 perfect platforms for under $200!

    I love how these are sky-high platforms with a modern twist. The white platform makes them funky, but the black leather makes them perfect for the work place.

    I have to say, when it comes to the platform trend, Urban Outfitters is leading the pack. Flatforms by title, I love the ankle strap with the buckle; it gives the platform the sophistication it needs.

    This silver pair would look great with a leather-pleated mini and a button-up shirt.

    I love the idea behind this velvet pink platform. It looks kind of  like an oxford, but also like a boot. 

    Available at Modcloth for $98.99

    With a straightforward view, you can't even tell these are platforms. They are casual and sweet — perfect with a pair of jeans or a simple dress.

    I love that you can be casual and trendy with these lace-ups.

    I've seen these in person and even tried them on. They are comfy and come at the whole platform trend at a different angle — by splitting the platform. 

    Available at Forever 21 for $32.80

  • Daphne Platform 11 of 11

    I love these Daphne platforms an insane amount. These look great with a funky pair of tights in the chillier months, with knee-highs and shorts, or with bare legs next spring or summer. 

    Available at Free People for $69.95
