Jessica Simpson wore black platform boots with jeans


Have you ever risked everything for fashion? This answer is probably yes. Even if you can’t think of a moment in recent memory, chances are you’ve done (or, well, worn) something “precarious” in your lifetime. For me, this piece is a mini-skirt I wore all the time in high school that was way too short for my good; I cringe thinking about it.

For Jessica Simpson, it looks like her risky fashion move involves a boot that’s very on-trend for Fall 2022. I guess some things are worth risking it all – and TBH, those ankle-busting shoes (named that way because that, well, you get the idea) are 100% worth trying, even if it’s an imminent accident.`

The boots in question? Platform ankle boots. The reason why they are worth the risk? They have an inherent cool factor that can be seen for miles (and yes, they can also be heard for miles thanks to that clunky sole that literally makes a statement with every step). We’re not sure of the exact branding of Simpson’s pair, but the DNA of most of these ankle boots is the same: a simple silhouette, a 3-plus-inch block heel, and a platform base. The only thing that seems to vary? Toe shape, which can range from a Simpsons-style 90s square toe to a classic rounded front.

Simpson teamed her platform ankle boots with graphic skinny jeans, a simple white t-shirt and a leather jacket. She completed the look with an oversized black tote bag and equally oversized sunglasses, while turquoise jewelry added a welcome pop of color.

It’s a simple combination of outfits that turned into a standout thanks to Simpson’s shoes of choice. TL; DR? It’s your sign to invest in a pair of platform boots (and you know we’re only half kidding with the part that breaks your ankle). And if you’re not ready to soar just yet, you can also choose your platform level.
