The espadrille wedge is a key trend this summer, but for many, wedge shoes are a no-go zone in ladies footwear. Why? Because they don’t know how to wear them. While they certainly look gorgeous in shop windows and fashion magazines with their bright colours and abstract styles, not many women have the confidence to try and pull them off.
But having spent hours scouring fashion magazines and websites, we have concluded that wedge shoes can be worn with just about anything: you just need to know which style suits which outfit. Below we’ve devised a wedge mini-guide so you girls can finally step out with confidence.
Tanned or nude wedge shoes are a great choice of ladies footwear, as not only do the neutral hues mean they go with almost anything but they are a fantastic way to add length to your legs. Moda in Pelle have some lush tan wedge shoes which would be perfect for creating a cute but casual daytime look like Jennifer Anniston, who teams hers with little shorts and a tee.
This simple style of wedge also looks great with a maxi skirt: Hilary Duff playing down her look with beige and mono-tones for daytime elegance, while Anne-Lynne McCord wore hers to enhance her stripy maxi-skirt.
Inspired by this summer’s colour-popping trend, celebs like Pixie Lott and Leighton Meester have mixed their floral and animal prints with super-bright hues for playful glamour. Team your printed dresses with neon-brights like Moda in Pelle wedge shoes in fuchsia and turquoise to get the look. And for chic holiday vibes, wear red wedges with an oversized tee and denim cut-offs.
Another favourite this summer, the tribal print wedge shoes make a great statement piece: from zebra-print to Aztec patterns, the range is endless. But as shown by style queens Jessica Alba and Blake Lively, whatever the pattern on the wedges, they look best when worn with simple, black, understated clothing.
Blake Lively adds femininity and flirtation to her black outfit, teaming her skinnies and wide-brimmed hat with leopard-print wedges, while Jessica Alba’s vibrant green Aztec pair livens up her whole casual attire.
As Kate Middleton has proven with her own well-recycled pair, classic black wedge shoes go with virtually everything. Maxi dresses, playsuits, capri-pants, skinny-jeans and tea-dresses in loud prints, ditsy floral patterns, vibrant shades, pastel hues or neutral tones: you cannot go wrong with this item of ladies footwear. Whether you want solid black suede or an espadrille-style cork wedge, Moda in Pelle have plenty of black wedge shoes to choose from.
Alternately, you could work with this season’s pastel shades. Going on holiday? Opt for a wedge with a soft mint, lilac or lemon hue and wear with denim cut-offs or a pretty dress: not only will you be bang on trend but the pastel shades will look amazing with a golden tan!
Whatever style you choose, don’t forget to paint your toe nails!
