How To Wear Wedges | Summer

how to wear wedges

Us cherri girls love a wedge heel for a number of reasons – and chances are you are the same! First up, it’s a comfort thing. The entire base of the shoe in contact with the ground which means more stability, less pain for the balls of your feet and way (way) easier to walk in than a stiletto. Secondly is how well they go from day-time style to night-time chic. Breezy and casual throughout the day then jazz them up for dancing all night. This type of shoe works hard! Lastly (although we could go on forever), the wedge was made popular in Italy thanks to the amazing Salvatore Ferragamo in the 1930’s. Seriously, can Italy get any better at this whole shoe business? We love Italian shoes!

Babes like Nicole Warne, Lily Kwong and Blake Lively love wedges in summer!

So we all love the wedge and we all know about their versatility, but what exactly can you style yours with? They tend toward the more casual side, but can easily work for cocktails, garden weddings and dates. Read on for our styling tips for one of the most versatile shoes in your wardrobe….

Maxi dresses and skirts: Easy to style and effortlessly works with the casual but stylish ways of the wedge. Amp up the boho feeling with bangles and a necklace. This look works for daytime but also looks lovely come cocktails or garden maxi tan wedges red dress tan wedges closeup

Skinny Jeans: A wardrobe staple themselves, skinny jeans will pair perfectly with a nice wedge heel. Both casual enough for daytime antics, like shopping and coffee dates, or go the wax look denim and a silk shirt to dress the whole outfit up! We like to layer our jeans and wedges too – like this baggy dress in a nice neutral cream to go shopping.

Middi length callots or skirts: One of the coolest lengths this season is the ‘middy’ or mid length skirt – or in this case, callots. Flowing and feminine, this silhouette works well with a bit of extra height which wedges will add, and also help anchor the floating feel of the look. Summery and fresh!

Tapered pants: A chic casual look: wedges will pair perfectly with your tapered pants. Whether you are going for a compliment to a print, like this lush tan and jungle print combo or different colour schemes, wedges look beautiful with pants. They also help to make a corporate pant look daytime casual, or help dress up a pair of harem pants. An elegant day time look, that will have you looking good for sporadic evening drinks.

Overalls: Rep one of the best trends to come back from the 90’s – the overalls. Overalls will overpower a dainty shoe like a kitten heel, and a stiletto will ruin the casual ease of baggy denim – the perfect solution? The wedge! We love this bright red against the blue of the denim – summer perfection.
