Flatforms. Now, there is a word that terrifies me alongside superfood, exercise and kale. If you’d have told me that I would have a) worn and b) actually liked a pair of flatforms a few months ago, I’d have never believed you. But fast forward to a time when I actually purchased my first pair of “fashionable trainers” last week, and regularly pick more casual shoes over my heels, and the flatform seems a little less daunting.
Now don’t get me wrong, they are definitely love or hate and I do have to think about what I pair them with so that I don’t look like a clown/straight up twat, but I think the outcome is worth it (although as always, you’ll be the judge of that, please be kind… [insert laughter/”no seriously, I’m a fragile flower, please don’t slate my look” emoji here, LOL]).
Said flatforms, with a side of leather and long loved outerwear….
As always, my faux leather trousers came out to play – as they do at least 2-3 times per week because I’m a basic bitch and not even sorry – and I absolutely love the combination of these and any trainer. Especially these flatforms as the two are the perfect mix of stylish and tomboy, chic. I then paired the look with an oversized shirt – another absolute fail safe item that never fails to look smart and “put together” – my completely ancient 2 year old New Look coat which I’ve kinda’ rekindled my love for, and the following accessories which I’m beyond obsessed with…
A new arrival to my accessory wardrobe is the absolutely stunningAspinal of London large essential pouch which gives me all the heart eye’d emoji’s in the world every single time I look at it. A beautiful maroon, shiny (which makes it pretty darn hard to capture just how lovely it is) leather pouch that really has become an essential. For a night out dinner with the girls or quick dash into town, or, a makeup bag/essentials wallet to slot inside your handbag, this beauty is an absolute must have. BRB, just stalking the entire Aspinal website and crying into my beans on (gluten free) toast because I want everything.
My final accessory is what this whole look is pretty much based around, the flatform. Said flatforms come courtesy of Kurt Geiger – which FYI, have the most frickin, amazing, incredible, beautiful, stunning spring collection that you’ve ever seen – and I can say that I am totally on the love side of the love/hate barometer. Yes, they’re pretty statement and yes, they’re not girly, “pretty”, or delicate, but I just think they’re cool. In a not too try hard kinda cool way. Beautifully well made and ahead of the times (I really sense a resurgence in the flatform) Kurt Geiger have totally pulled it out the bag with the Ladbrook Flatform. What I also love is that from above, they totally just look like a really chic trainer too which definitely makes them more wearable. They have the Ladbrook in a couple of colours but as I am the queen of the navy obsession at the moment, these were first on my list!
So that brings my “hey guys, don’t think I’m crazy but flatforms are officially bae” post to an end. I really enjoyed pulling this outfit together, I think it’s because it definitely brings out my more tomboy/casual side which let’s be honest, is not only much more comfortable, but also a little more cool. (At least it would be if the person wearing it wasn’t such a twat!).
I’d love to know your thoughts on the flatform, are they something you’d wear or would you never be seen dead in them? 😉 I’d love to hear your thoughts!
These are awesome! I remember there were some converse that were platformed with a bit of a heel and I wanted them for ages, especially since I'm so short XD
Ah thank you lovely, glad you like them! Haha they literally make me more of a giant!
That essentials pouch is so beyond gorgeous. In fact, this whole outfit is!
You have such a wonderful written voice, I actually laughed at the bit about superfood/kale/exercise! Thanks for brightening up my morning.

Isn't it so pretty? I'm so obsessed with it! Ahh thank you, so happy you liked it, that's made my day!
I really like them & love the whole look you've put together! They look so comfy! xx
Thanks hun, so pleased you do!
I'm not a huge fan of flat forms but you pull them off pretty well. I think they look gorgeous from the top and personally I wouldn't wear them, but they look effortless on you!
Love from Daisy xxx
Ah thanks lovely, so sweet of you! Totally get that they're love or hate 🙂
I love flatforms they just look so effortlessly cool! I only own flatforms sandals at the moment but I'd love some trainers, yours are so beautiful! They definitely look best with a classic outfit and I love that coat too!

Thanks so much beaut, so pleased you like them!
I've no doubts why you love these faux leather trousers and you wear them so often, because they're amazing and look like must-have in every wardrobe 😉 What about these shoes I think it could be great option for me, because I'm short and these comfy flatforms can add some centimeters to my height 😉
Thanks lovely, the faux leathers are my absolute essentials 🙂
I love flatforms, despite not owning any! I'm still trying to convince myself to buy the incredible Stella McCartney platforms. Gorgeous outfit as always Ellie!
Oooh those sound amazing, go for it girl!
Loved this post, your blog post "voice" is so friendly and life-like its like chatting to a friend! Off to gaze at Kurt Geiger now!
Ahh thank you lovely, that absolutely makes my day!
I think they look really cool and high end! They definitely add something 'extra' to an outfit. Gorgeous photos as always and thank you for making me laugh too! x

Me too hun, I mean they are £150 I think so definitely not budget but I do think they look designer. Ahh so pleased I made you laugh, hope you're well hun!
I love flatforms, purely because they make my 5'3 (and a half) self a tiny bit taller, and make me feel more like a gazelle, and less like a Hobbit! Those trousers are bae too tbh. The colour of that pouch is to die for! BEAUT.
Meg | A Little Twist Of…
Haha they make me feel a little bit like a giant so I totally get that! I love the pouch too, my fave <3
I love flatforms, I've loved them for a few years now, they add a little something extra to an outfit. I love your Kurt Geiger ones so much!
The Velvet Black | UK Style & Beauty Blog
Totally with you there lovely, just that extra little something something!
Flatforms scare me greatly – These suit you though although I'm still not convinced on myself!
Oh I know the feeling, I was petrified at first but ended up loving the result!
I think these look great on you, it's always good to add extra height. I have a pair of Summer wedges that must be flatforms as the heel doesn't taper, had never realized they were 😉
I LOVE your shoes so much, they're amazing xx
Gemma ♥ | Miss Makeup Magpie
Ahh thanks beaut!
You styled the flatforms perfectly! I don't think I could carry them off! Just a gorgeous and stylish look. The clutch is to die for! Have a great weekend girl!
Thank you lovely, I bet you'd pull them off perfectly! Have a fab weekend too <3
You look killer, babe but I'm not convinced for myself-might have to go in store and see though (you've tempted me). Aspinal of London are one of my faves-so classically chic. Gorge post as always x
Thank you lovely lady, really means a lot!
i absolutely love flatforms, love how the ones you're wearing give the outfit a more cool & casual vibe 🙂

Being 5ft4 I'm all about the flatform, thank you for letting me be tall/comfy!
Britton Loves | Lifestyle Beauty Wellbeing
Haha yes, totally with you girl even though I definitely don't need no extra height 😉
I'm not a fan of flatforms, they just don't suit me however this pair looks fab on you. I love how comfy yet chic your outfit looks! x
Thank you lovely, pleased you still like this!
I love your flatforms and really like how you styled them. I think I should buy one of these, I'm really short so they would be perfect for me haha. This outfit is amazing <3

Thanks so much lovely, hah they would be perfect!
I've never really had the urge to buy a pair of flatforms but you've styled them perfectly in this post! They look amazing on you! xo
Thanks so much Rachel, so happy you think so!
These flatforms are so unlike my style too, but for some reason I love them! Totally adore how you've styled them, that maroon pouch is seriously incredible! 🙂
Ah thank you hun, so glad you think the same!
I always love to wear platforms
It is easy to walk through and paired with any outfit

I like this outfit it's different but so edgy, you pull it off really well Elle! I am trying to be a little more daring lately with my own outfit's, take this jumpsuit I have just reviewed for example my Dad said it looked like I was wearing Pj's 🙂

In love with the shoes! I love platforms. Might actually be because I am kkinda short but either way these are so cute!

Ahh thank you lovely, I cannot wait to see you soon!!
You look fantastic, love this outfit!
Thanks so much lovely, so pleased you do!
Really good outfit
haha it looks great but i don't think i would get them…i think every outfit you wear them with will have to be literally styled around the shoe like you did here.
haha i never think to follow people on snapchat! I may have to now!
you look amazing, i really love your street style
"If you'd have told me that I would have a) worn and b) actually liked a pair of flatforms a few months ago, I'd have never believed you"
Girl, these are literally my exact thoughts. I abhorred them until recently when my flats felt toooooo flat (weird right). I was feeling like garbage, and wanted to feel taller than I was yet the illness prevent me from wearing heel. Thus began the flatform love!
