If you love the way platform shoes and platform boots can create a longer look but have always felt like the style didn't fit in with your fashion sense, then you need to give hidden platforms a try. They are the perfect choice in shoes for adding height and creating a leaner look.

Sometimes known as covered platforms, hidden platform are styled with at least a half inch platform inside the shoe. Regular platform shoes build the shoe on top of the platform, but hidden platform disguise the extra height by covering it with material to match the rest of the shoe. The result is a subtle increase in over all height and leg length.

The hidden platform is found in a variety of styles, from pumps to platform knee high boots. One of the added benefits of hidden platforms is that they make it easier to wear taller heels. Adding a two inch platform to a four inch heel adds so much height, creating a look that is long and sexy. Needless to say, regular platforms also do this, but some people feel the typical platform is too scandalous a look - there's a reason that platform shoes are sometimes called "stripper shoes".

But with covered platforms, it's often impossible to tell there's a platform at all, so even good girls can have the gorgeous height and sexy leanness of a platform shoe. There are so many different options, not just pumps and boots but also varieties of material and heels. Wear chunky heeled platforms or try one with a sexy stiletto - the choice is up to you.

Pumps with a covered platform and a wedge heel goes great with wide bottom jeans or pants - the style will balance out wide hips and shoulders creating a longer and leaner look. Or you can pair tall boots with a hidden platform over leggings or skinny jeans. Or maybe you'd like to wear stylish covered platform pumps to the office with a skirt suit. There are just so many different styles that work!
