Which Platform Trainers You Should Buy According To Your Star Sign, Because There Are *Options*

Guille Faingold / Stocksy

Life is full of struggles. Ugh don't even get me started. Sometimes even things on the lower end of the importance scale can get you down. Like making wise fashion choices. A lot of people look to star signs to point them in the right direction so why not give it a go when dipping your toe into the latest trends. Like say, platform trainers? Because guys, deciding which platform trainers you should buy based on your star sign is definitely some science I can get behind.

There's no denying that platform trainers are so hot right now. Yes, another blast from the nineties past popularised by mega stars and personal friends the Spice Girls. OK maybe not actually personal friends but let a gal dream for god sake.

The platform trainer provides not only an extra bit of height and some sick steeze but guys: comfort. Is there anything more important in this world than a shoe that affords you elegance minus that stabbing post-heels agony?

Luckily for fans of the sick AF shoes, there are so many options for every occasion and for every desire. And as their popularity increases, so does the difficulty in picking just one pair. Luckily for you, it is already written in the stars which ones to get. Well, kind of.

3. Gemini

The gentle and curious Gemini is super adaptable. One of the traits of these air signs is the strong ability to learn quickly. So for that reason, why not have a little bit of a challenge. Let's just say, the sky is the limit here.

10. Capricorn

Capricorns are extremely disciplined and known as being in control as much as is humanly possible. Which makes them excellent managers, but also at times a little contrary. For this reason, they need to err on the side of more neutral styles so they don't go off their purchase super quick.

Whether your decision is driven by the stars, your bank balance, or an outfit that needs completing — make sure you take extra care in sizing as in my personal experience, platforms often come up a bit smaller.
