Top Story: A Quick Style Guide For Wearing Wedges

wedges2

Wedge shoes are notoriously comfortable to wear and a lot easier to walk in than high heels or stilettos will ever be, which should make them the perfect choice of shoes if you are like me and still feel just a little bit uneasy and precariously balanced wearing sky-high heels.

Apart from the fact that they are easy to walk in, I still struggle occasionally with the logic of wearing shoes that make it difficult to perform a simple body motion like walking, wedges do an absolutely fantastic job of making your legs appear longer and more lithe.

What more reason do you need to show off some leg than footwear that can make your legs as sexy as high heels do without the discomfort?

Wedges are the perfect excuse to flash those legs in a dress or short skirt. In the Summer you can wear wedge sandals for a casual but sexy look accentuating those calves. Wedge boots and sandals are great for the Summer. I personally like the cut out style wedge boots, all the benefits of a sandal minimizing sweaty feet in the Summer but with no compromise on style or looks. For a really sexy look try wearing them in combination with a cute pair of shorts, if you have the figure go for a pair of cut off denim Daisy Dukes. Think Jessica Simpson but without the cowboy boots. Anyone old enough to remember the original Dukes of Hazard?

Going Retro

Wedges are pretty versatile and can be mixed and matched a lot more than say a pair of high heels ever should be. The Retro look is a true fashion statement that never seems to go out of fashion so try combining wedge heeled shoes, boots or sandals with some flared retro style jeans for a cool and casual look. If you get it just right the jeans will be just long enough to cover up most of your gorgeous shoes( I know !) but will create a really good illusion that you are actually taller than you really are and that is combined with the small lift from the wedge heel too. Try not to cover the whole of the shoe though, ideally you want some or all of the heel showing to really create that visual trickery of increased height. If you are already tall would you like to be even taller?

Staying on the subject of denim and wedge shoes, if you wear a pair of wedges with skinny jeans they can really create that sculpted look for your legs I mentioned earlier. Important to get a pair of skinny jeans that fit well not just because if they are too tight you may lose all movement in your legs but because if they bunch at the bottom of your leg it does not look as clean as when they fall perfectly at your ankle. If you wear wedge boots with skinny jeans this bunching will be hard to prevent and can look a bit messy as they have a habit of not staying in your boots.

Wedge shoes can help give you height and help make your legs look longer so next time you are shoe shopping consider living on the wedge or getting a wedgucation.
