If you want to stand out in the crowd and make your shoe a statement piece choose wedges in bright, eye popping block colours. They can be worn with almost anything such as dresses, shorts, skirts or even jeans. A bright, bold pair of wedges will look great with any denim and transform a floaty summers dress from day wear to night wear instantly.
If you are naturally tall don't be afraid of wearing wedges, you can still wear wedges just with a small heel and you'll still be following the trend for the summer. On the other hand if you are on the petite side wedges are ideal for you as they add height but can still look casual depending on the shape and design of the wedge you have chosen. Like any other shoe wedges come in a vast range of styles and it can be hard to choose just one pair that can be a staple part of your summer wardrobe! Here's a few of the most popular styles at the moment to help get you started..
- Opt for open toe, strappy sandal style wedges for a casual day time look or those with sling backs if you want a bit more coverage.
- Wedges with ankle straps can look very classy and elegant and a perfect for evenings out but you should avoid them if you have short legs as they will only make them appear shorter
- Full shoe wedges with a slight platform base are at the top of the trend at the moment and probably the best for English weather!
- If you want to go for something different try wedge ankle boots with an open toe, they are being seen on all the celebs and add a quirky dangerous edge to pretty summer dresses
A top reason for buying wedges and adding some more shoes to your collection is the simple fact they are so versatile and will enlongate your legs, especially when worn in a nude tone. They instantly give the impression that you have longer, more toned pins which is always beneficial when wearing your shorts, a skirt or a dress and after all who doesn't want to see a lady being confident and showing off long slender legs?!
