For spring and summer 2018 the heel trend can be summed up in one word: chunky. Yes, it’s good to be thick and the thicker, the better. (Hallelujah!) This year you don’t have to teeter on stiletto heels to be on trend. New from designer Tory Burch, the “Camilla” platform sandals ($358) are indicative of the style of shoe that will be popular for this year’s warm weather looks. First, you’ve got that chunky platform heel that has come back as the hot and current trend. Next, the sandal has a buckled ankle strap that goes a step further and is adorned with red dyed calf hair. This adds an element of texture to the shoe. The color is a vibrant red; the warm color adds some spice to the sandal. Overall, the shoe will add 4 inches to your height, but it feels like you are wearing a 2.5 inch heel. This is how a platform with a chunky heel gives your ankles, knees and back a slight break. So if you want a tall shoe that barely feels like you are wearing a heel, choose a shoe like the Tory Burch “Camilla” platform sandal.
