Wedges – a summer staple


I recently discovered the beauty of wedges so this is probably going to be a summer full of them. I’m just dipping my toes in the sea of possibilities! I've seen so many beautiful pairs I feel  a bit overwhelmed! But I would wear any of these babies! Hell, I want them all!:)




Why women love wedge shoes?
It is a well known truth that women love shoes. From five-inch stilettos to a pair of ultra-comfy flip-flops, knee-high boots to casual trainers, women love to browse around the shoe shops, looking to take home another pair to join the other 30, already dominating their wardrobe space. I think wedges are a summer staple because they are so laid back, effortlessly cool, pretty and practical. No wonder women can’t resist them.

Add height
Unlike stilettos, platforms and high heels in general, wedge shoes are deceptively high. Not only does wearing a pair make us appear significantly taller – a desirable trait for most – they’re also easy to walk in. You won’t have to totter along, unnaturally and comically in a pair of five-inch stilettos that didn’t quite master walking in. With wedges, your feet are just as elevated in the air but remain at the same level – no balance or skill involved. This means you can walk naturally and comfortably down the road without running the risk of breaking your neck! 



Versatile
Another reason why women love wedge shoes so much is because they are highly versatile. When worn with a pair of jeans, wedges look great and are fantastic for more casual occasions such as shopping or going to the cinema. When worn with a short dress or skirt, wedges make legs look longer and slimmer and are guaranteed to turn heads on a night out. Wedge shoes also look great when worn with a long dress, giving you extra height and a touch of glamour – perfect for a dinner party or more formal occasions.

Summertime is here!
Wedge shoes are one of those items in your wardrobe that are synonymous with summer. And because of this, it’s hard not to love them. Shoved to the back of the wardrobe for eight months of the year, wedges make a genuine comeback as soon as the weather begins to warm up. Summer is here, and so are the short skirts and wedge shoes. Let the fun begin

 So, how do you feel about wedges?

I've always been a fan of wedges because they're more comfortable to walk in compare to any heels. I definitely have a few wedges in my shoe collection.

Lovely photos of wedges. =)
