One of the most exciting things about summer fashion has got to be the shoes. After months of keeping our feet hidden in warm socks and chunky boots, it’s a refreshing feeling to slip on a pretty pair of sandals, and it’s a sure sign that summer has arrived!
If there’s one type of shoe in particular that has taken over our wardrobes for the past couple of summers, and even found its way into our 2010 winter wardrobe, it’s the wedge. The more comfortable cousin to the killer heel, wedges add inches to our height while spreading our weight more evenly along the chunky platform, preventing that dreaded pain that usually comes with wearing heels.
Whether you want to keep the platform small for extra comfort or supersize it for extra height and impact, there’s a wedge to suit everyone and a huge variety of styles to choose from. So to give you a head start, here’s our pick of the huge selection of wedges at Littlewoods.com.
Starting with a style to suit those of us who prefer a lower heel, these Dune Naples wedges are perfect for shopping trips and days out thanks to the comfortably low wedge and simple yet stylish tan straps. Or this coral pair from Rockport add a splash of colour and integrates the platform into the design by covering it in a gorgeous coral, black and silver weave effect.
To the other extreme, super high wedges are right on trend and look fabulous, but if you struggle to walk in heels they may not be the shoes for you! These Love Label Mackintosh
wedges are true statement shoes and will give a pretty summer dress a bit of an edge and will look stunning on a night out. Or keep the height but go for an ultra feminine design with these Love Label Maretto wedges. The bright colour, peep toe style and corsage detail make these the perfect shoes for summer weddings and barbeques, just pair with a floral dress or roll-up shorts and they’ll be the statement piece of any outfit.
And finally, if you’re looking for a pair of wedges to become your summer staples, these Dune Note shoes will do the trick thanks to the go-with-everything taupe colour and sturdy wooden wedge heel. Or these Love Label Newcomb Bandage wedges are slightly more glamorous but will still go with nearly every outfit and suit every occasion this summer.
So whether you’re looking for some stylish comfort, or some extreme height, there’s a wedge for everyone this summer, so don’t miss out on the season’s hottest shoe style!
