After being cooped up in socks and boots all winter long, we’re definitely eager to slip our feet into some fabulous sandals this spring.

Wedges are still a really important trend in footwear this season, and we’re big fans of Matt Bernson’s latest collection of wonderful wedges. The stacked wooden heels give these shoes a laid-back and effortlessly cool vibe.

1. “Sahara” Quilted wedge peep toe: This is a great option for dressing up a daytime look that transitions into date night.

2.“Pan Am” wedge pumps: A leopard print shoe should be on your must-have list this season.

3. “Exeter” low wedge oxfords: It’s no secret that oxfords are huge for fall and into winter. These have a slight wedge to add a bit of femininity.

4. “Dune” wedge ankle boots: We can see ourselves wearing this from the office to that trendy new restaurant without skimping on style.

Even though we’re seeing a comeback of shorter heels and kitten heels, there’s still a special place in our hearts for the leg-slimming, leg-lengthening brilliance of sky-high platform wedges. For those of us who are on the shorter side, or those who just refuse to be seen in flats (you ladies know who you are!),  it’s  comforting to know that this season still boasts quite an impressive crop of height-amplifying platform shoes for us to lust over.

Here are a few of our must-haves for the summer:

Steve Madden Wissper: This nude-colored sling-back platform really lengthens the legs!

Via Spiga Eve: With a flair for the ‘70s, this stunning platform really makes a fresh statement. It’s definitely better than anything Marcia Brady could ever dream of!

Nine West Bottos: There’s a lot to love about the versatility of this casual wedge. Wear it with anything and everything!

Pelle Moda Jamba: The gladiator-like straps coupled with the cork and espadrille combo make this one fabulous wedge sandal!

MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille: The braided strap over a nice, tall espadrille wedge gives this such a boho flair.

It’s no question that the sandal is quintessential spring and summer footwear. Whether you prefer something with high heels and a platform, or go for something more down to earth and sleek, a pair of strappy sandals will definitely take you through the season’s hottest trends.

Today, we’re putting the spotlight on the wonders of the neutral sandal, both in a platform wedge and a flat ankle strap. The Stuart Weitzman Alex espadrille wedge is a fabulous and versatile example of this popular shoe trend. It works perfectly with a multitude of things, from jeans to dresses. On the other side of the spectrum, the Stuart Weitzman Cuffed is a modern take on the classic flat sandal. The rich metallic accent gives it just the perfect dose of luxe, without overpowering a more dressed-down outfit. Try it with a sexy maxi dress or a pair of flowy linen pants.

Whether you go high with a platform, or low with flat sandals, both looks will prove indispensable in creating chic ensembles from the ground up.

Trend: Wedges For Spring/Summer

One shoe trend that keeps popping up each spring/summer season is wedges. There are plenty of renditions of this wearable trend from chunky platforms to sleek, slim wedges, to more casual espadrilles and wooden wedges. Not only are wedges more walkable than say, your average stiletto heel, there’s one (actually a few!) to suit literally every kind of style.

The first ensemble above is a fun update to a going-out look featuring the uber-versatile Aldo Edvalson wedge sandals. The pairing of a beige shoe with the muted moss color of the BCBGeneration Triangle Back Romper really sets a gorgeous neutral backdrop for the brighter accessories to pop!

The second look is a modern take on the bohemian ‘60s vibe. What better sandals to pair this breezy look of than with the retro-style Frye Carlie Huarache Ankle. This earthy wedge is not too high, making it perfect for walking around at music festivals or beachside lunch dates. The lovely Lucky Brand Dakota Crochet Button Back Top is given an of-the-moment touch with the Rich & Skinny Boyfriend Shorts.  The Fossil Vintage Reissue II Drawstring hobo and the delightfully natural beauty of the Lucky Brand Kindred Spirits Multi Stone turquoise necklace rounds out this modern love child look.

Need an outfit for date night? Wedges are definitely the perfect casual date shoe because they give you both height and comfort. The gorgeous rose coral shade of the Ella Moss Loveland Sleeveless Cinched Waist Dress makes the perfect counterpoint for the versatile Aldo Affina platform wedge sandals. These shoes are perfect for dancing, strolling and flirting the night away!  Add in the cute Aldo Fitzmorris woven clutch and a pair of Kendra Scott Lucy earrings, and you’ve got a totally sexy, but not-too-sexy date look.

The final look in this wedge-stravaganza is definitely the most playful and whimsical of them all. The nautical vibe of the red O’Neill Hurricane striped top plays up the same sailor-esque vibe of the Steve Madden Sailor Shorts. A pair of neutral woven wedges like the leg-lengthening Aldo Happer captures the overall summery feel of this ensemble.
