Wedges are one of this summer’s must-have heels and we couldn’t be happier. Not only do they add height and lengthen your legs – a big plus when rocking some of summer’s shorter looks – they’re fun to wear. And with the plethora of pretty styles available, the hardest part is choosing which pair to wear. Let us help you narrow down your options.
6 Stylish wedge sandals for summer
If you’re stumped on what kind of sexy summer sandal to sport this season, may we suggest the wedge? Here we’ve picked some of our current favorites for fashionable hot weather footwear.
Take the stress out of deciding which sandals to where with which outfit by opting for something neutral. We love these stacked platform wedges in camel, a soft creamy beige (Aldo, $70), featuring stitched straps that crisscross over the foot, peep toe and fabulous 4-inch heel. Dress up denim shorts or make your legs the star of the show in an a-line mini.
We have a soft spot for pretty pastels and these Nine West wedge sandals (Nordstrom, $100) are no exception. Canvas straps in subdued shades of blue and green lie across the top and around the ankle, while the platform and heel are wrapped in jute for a natural-looking finish. Wear these with basic black or bright white to really emphasize the pretty, pastel hue.
Add some on-trend sailor-inspired style to your summer wardrobe with these navy and cream Tory Burch espadrille wedges (Bergdorf Goodman, $175). The elastic straps cross over the foot and around the ankle and we love that these slip on easily for added comfort. We’re picturing these sophisticated sandals with a tea-length skirt or wide leg trousers.
Just try not to smile to yourself as you wear these sweet Steve Madden wedge sandals (Bloomingdales, $90) featuring a gingham fabric knot across the toes and thin ankle strap. We love the fun, flirty vibe and can’t resist the fashionable, feminine charm. Pair with swingy skirt, large-frame shades and retro, 50s-style accessories.
Sometimes all you need is a great style that’s simple, but offers a fashionable option for going from the office to a post-work date. These 7 For All Mankind soft grey suede wedges (The Shoe box, $195) fit the bill. We love the slight peep-toe and stacked wood platform, and the fact that these chic sandals will compliment everything from denim to floral to basic black.
Bring the bling
Go glam for a day in these Stuart Weitzman cork wedge heels (Neiman Marcus, $335) featuring subtle glitter on soft leather straps. We can’t resist a bit of stylish sparkle and these sandals get it right. Not too much, not too little – just enough to add a fun twist to an otherwise neutral shoe. Bust these out when you’ve got somewhere fun to go and want to get noticed.
