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.
