Trend: Platform Shoes

Platform shoes really hit it big in the '90s, and now they're back and better than ever. Although I will forever pine for the Union Jack platform shoes that Ginger Spice used to rock (pourin' out a little bit of my Henney for you, Ging), these updated versions of '90s girl band classics are special in their own ways. Plus, they're just a smiiiidge more wearable. —Katie
