Mention the platform heel and there are two things that likely come to mind: a) the glam swinging '70s and their disco-dancin', floor-sweepin' bell bottom pants; or b) that awkward bracket sandwiching the late 2000s, not quite far off enough to be retro-cool, where stacked round-toe pumps and chunky stiletto sandals were all the rage. Either answer, we don't blame you for considering them, well, a tad too old-school.

6. No better teacher than Italian label Miu Miu for a crash course on how to rock patent Mary Janes. Tame their kitschy, pinup-girl connotations in full acid-washed denim!

7. Margaret Zhang has the simplest advice: just throw on a slouchy, oversized suit and go already. Jeez.
