Dress Like Kate Middleton: Black Patent with Wicker Platforms

platforms for a princess - kate middleton


I adore Kate Middleton's style, and I love that she is loyal to wearing her same favorite pairs of shoes, especially her L.K. Bennett nude pumps.

But probably my favorite shoes of hers are the black patent shoes with a wicker platform heel. I found almost a carbon copy by Franco Sarto at the Nordstrom shoe sale earlier this year, and I love that they are a touch fancier than regular summer shoes, but the wicker platform heel lets them work for summer.

She also had a slingback pair that she wears often with her less formal outfits, and they are just as versatile.

I also recently bought a pair of Christian Siriano for Payless strappy black platforms that fit with the trend of black patent and wicker.

Both pairs are going to be my go-to upgrade from flats when I need to spruce up and outfit.

These shoes were less than $50 each and will hopefully give me a touch of Middleton in everything I wear with them.

There are many options available out there and the platform is so much more comfortable than a regular heel.

So get your Duchess Kate on and find yourself some platforms that are perfect for a princess.
