Summer Shoe Style
Wedge sandals are a summer staple in our book and we’ve sourced some of the cutest pairs we could find. Who wouldn’t love a shoe that adds height, makes legs look long and lean and enhances any outfit, from sundress to cut-offs? Check out our picks for five fabulous wedges.
Make it multicolor
Trade neutral summer footwear for this pair of drool-worthy wedge heels (nordstrom.com, $164). The Kate Spade cuties feature a wedge wrapped in multicolored braiding giving the heel a playful rainbow effect perfect for summer. What we love most about these super-cute sandals is the fun, flirty vibe they give off that ups the fun-factor of any outfit.
Add some serious sophistication to your summer footwear collection with this pair of bold, orangey-red leather wedge sandals (jcrew.com, $120). The bold hue and sky high basket-weave wedge ensure you’ll be putting your best foot forward every time you strap them on. Add elegance to a casual T-shirt and shorts ensemble or wear with your favorite flowing summer dress for effortless hot weather style.
For something a little different (but still oh-so-stylish), don a pair of these unique wedge sandals featuring snakeskin across the toe, a wide ankle strap and cut-away heel (anthropologie.com, $258). It’s the cut-away heel that really made us stand up and take notice. Made from cork, stacked leather and jute, it creates a stunning silhouette.
Not all wedges are created equal and this pair – soft suede platforms atop a wooden cut-out wedge heel – definitely offers something a little different (urbanoutfitters.com, $69). Neutral enough to be office-friendly, but intriguing enough to want to show off (on a date, maybe?), these wow-worthy wedges are a summer style must.
Nothing says summer quite like a refreshing shade of blue, which is why we fell for this pair of strappy wedge sandals in a bright shade of teal (aldoshoes.com, $60). There’s no way you won’t get noticed strutting your stuff in these seriously summery sandals.
