Every summer I look forward to minimalist style that is both chic and functional. The winter months have faded, and it’s time for fantastic finds that scream summer. A fabulous aspect of summer accessories is the comfort you find in a great wedge or espadrille sandal. Even when the sandal’s height is above 4 inches, wedges provide a stylish and comfortable switch up from those pumps and heels. In the spirit of summer’s final month and some serious fashion, I dedicate this article to the wedge.
A great thing about these flattering sandals is that many styles are wearable day or night and in multiple locations. I’ve broken it down below to give you the sandal and shoe for many of your occasions:
Summer Barbeque or Party
Office Jobs and Internships
When wearing wedges to the office keep them classic and try nude or black. If you're in a more casual setting, you can get away with wooden wedges (steer clear of espadrille styles for office settings), or if your office is more polished, stick to a chic, one-color style of wedge like this pair from Enzo Angiolini. Pair it with a knee-length pencil skirt and you have instantly updated standard office attire for summer.
Date Nightthis pair from Timberland with a hot mini dress or a shorts outfit and you have an instant bombshell look, all along NOT torturing your toes.
So as those summer days dwindle down, rock some wedges - your feet will thank you!
