Although flats and more modest heels are making a big splash in fashion these days, there’s still a special place in our shoe collections (and our hearts) for leg-lengthening platforms!

There are so many head-turning options out there right now; it was hard for us to narrow down to our favorites. But whether you opt for bright statement platforms or a more subtle neutral, you can’t go wrong with the platform’s abundantly sexy style.

Here are some of our current height-amplifying favorites:

1.Fergie Beenie: These sassy and strappy platforms are thoroughly flirty for day or night.

2. Sam Edelman Niland: When it comes to strutting your stuff at that next party, look no further than these amazingly svelte pumps.

3. Jessica Simpson Maris: The subdued grey or black hue balances the modern shape and tall platform wedges.

4. ALDO Calcagni: The streamlined silhouette tones down the boldness of these sleek platform wedges.

5. Steve Madden Shazzam: Leopard print isn’t going anywhere this season, and these stunningly bold platforms embrace it in a big way.

Even though we’re seeing a comeback of shorter heels and kitten heels, there’s still a special place in our hearts for the leg-slimming, leg-lengthening brilliance of sky-high platform wedges. For those of us who are on the shorter side, or those who just refuse to be seen in flats (you ladies know who you are!),  it’s  comforting to know that this season still boasts quite an impressive crop of height-amplifying platform shoes for us to lust over.

Here are a few of our must-haves for the summer:

Steve Madden Wissper: This nude-colored sling-back platform really lengthens the legs!

Via Spiga Eve: With a flair for the ‘70s, this stunning platform really makes a fresh statement. It’s definitely better than anything Marcia Brady could ever dream of!

Nine West Bottos: There’s a lot to love about the versatility of this casual wedge. Wear it with anything and everything!

Pelle Moda Jamba: The gladiator-like straps coupled with the cork and espadrille combo make this one fabulous wedge sandal!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille: The braided strap over a nice, tall espadrille wedge gives this such a boho flair.
