No matter how hard you try, you can't ignore the trend for platform shoes. Every designer worth mentioning was showing them for Summer, and even stiletto stawarts like Gina have admitted defeat with their own takes on the trend. The trick is to find something that manages to be feminine and chunky at the same time. Those of us born without the shrinking violet gene could try these gold leather Casadei heels for £114. It's either these or wedges, ladies!
