I am ecstatic that the wedge is in style this season. The wedge is in-arguably the most comfortable type of high heel you can wear. If you are the type of woman who hates high heels, you should try a wedge. They are easier to walk in and a million times more comfortable. Wearing heels elongates your leg, makes you look thinner, and makes your posture better.
This summer, the espadrille inspired wedge is hot. You can wear them with shorts, skirts and jeans of all types and lengths. I have a few suggestions for you today…
This is a classic wedge. You could wear this shoe basically year round (at least in NC). I love, love this shoe (I actually have this one) but this is not necessarily the summer shoe I am talking about.
This is a rope style wedge. I love the gold with the neutral bottom. This shoe would go with any outfit. And by the way, if you do not have a metallic shoe in your summer wardrobe (high and/or flat) that should be at the top of your list to add to your closet.
This is a classic style wedge by TOMS. This comes in tons of colors and is a more casual style to consider. I personally do not think this style is a comfortable to wear as the more strappy type but I love the way it looks.
This is a cork style wedge. Silver this time. I am trying to make a statement here about metallics. It is just a different look than the rope style. This heel is a little bit shorter too which makes it more casual. You could totally wear these to a park or a cookout with shorts.
This is a more funky approach to the summer wedge. I love this shoe (and it is only 39$ on Zappos made by O’Neill). If you go with this type of shoe, remember, the rest of your outfit should be neutral and toned down. (Remember, only one statement at at time).
And finally, one more tip. When choosing a wedge, I find the shoes with more support around my foot and ankle are much easier to walk in than those without. So the brown shoe here would be more comfortable for me than the navy.
