These gold platform 6 inch heels are not for the faint of heart. When I first received them in the mail as a surprise from Femmes Sans Peur, I admit that I was a bit intimidated. I’m not a 6 inch heel kind of girl, mainly because I have a high “stripper radar,” and never want to wear anything that resembles a stripper uniform. Not that there’s anything wrong with being a stripper, it’s just not my style from a fashion standpoint. But these shoes are so exquisitely made that I had to take them out for a spin. So I decided to incorporate them into a casual Friday outfit and make them more wearable. Read on for my tips on how to dress down a pair of 6 inch heels.
Essential Pieces to Dress Down 6 Inch Heels
A white shirt – There’s nothing more classic than a white shirt, and this is a great way to dress down 6 inch heels, especially gold platform ones. I love the simplicity of a white shirt contrasted against a statement piece.
A cool pair of jeans – Nothing says casual chic than a cool pair of jeans, especially when they come with floral embroidery and a split hem. A split hem is perfect for lace-up heels as it allows the laces to peek through the hem.
A leather tote bag – A staple in any closet, a leather tote bag effortlessly completes a casual Friday outfit. The one I’m carrying is from Dooney & Burke and is a great size for everyday, plus it comes with a strap so you can also wear it crossbody or on the shoulder.
