In the past, celebrities wearing wedges were everywhere. The golden age of wedges is over, but these versatile and comfortable shoes are back in a big way, just like everything low-rise and Boho. The wedge has changed over the years but the rules of how to wear them have remained the same.

Wedges come in so many styles that are walkable, from strappy sandals to chunky block and sleek wedge pumps. There are so many styles of wedges to choose from, including chunky block wedges and stylish wedge pumps. Each of these timeless and trendy looks features wedges that deliver both style and comfort. Add a little of your own aesthetic to the #OOTD and you’re ready to go.

Add Color

You can spice up your casual denim outfit with a pair of wedges in an intense summery color. Even the most basic outfit of blue jeans and a white tee can be elevated with a pop of color, paired with a platform or stacked heel. Finish the look off with an oversize blazer, and a matching purse.

In summer, no one wants to sweat in a tight-fitting suit. This is why slouchy separates made of lightweight fabrics are ideal. To add structure, pair a boxy jacket and relaxed-fit pants with wedge sandals.

Lean into Mixed Prints

A mixed print ensemble that extends past the ankle can create a stunning cohesion. The perfect way to finish off an outfit with a mix of patterns and embellishments is by wearing wedge sandals in high contrast that combine fabrics and finishes.

Opt for Sharp Angles

Wedges are not just sloping sandals made of cork and raffia. They can also be as sharp as stilettos. Pump-like wedges with a closed toe are more vampy than espadrilles. Wear them with a tank and midi skirt for a stylish look that balances between being sophisticated and edgy.

Even at high altitudes, wedges make it easier to walk than other styles of high heels. This comfort should be taken advantage of as much as possible. We love the look of a maxi or midi sundress paired with woven wedges that are sky-high.

Try Sporty Sandals

The versatility of wedges extends to chunky athletic sandals and classic pumps. Wearing wedges with an A line mini dress for a stroll in the park is a good idea. These shoes are up to the task.

Embrace Vintage Vibes

The warm weather is the perfect time to wear cottagecore, vintage dresses and Bridgerton-inspired dresses. However, it can be difficult to accessorize these styles for a modern look. The woven wedges and classic espadrilles that have ribbon ties will add energy to the most Victorian girlie outfit without going into costume.

Go for Bold Jellies

If you are more eclectic or experimental in your style, then classic wedges made of wood, cork, woven or a combination might not appeal to you. There are many rubber-soled and jelly wedges available. These styles are futuristic and street-style, which work well with silk or satin separates. Want even more impact? Consider a pair of sleek, metallic shoes.

Wedges aren’t as serious as pumps or slingbacks. Their eclectic style pairs well with funky accessories, such as colorful socks frills or patterns. We recommend that you choose a pair of wedges in leather or suede to create a contrast.
