I. Love. Wedges. I adore this Ashish pair by Topshop, but, alas, they've been sold out for months. I've been coveting a black leather pair, also from Topshop, but they only come in half sizes. I need a pair of wedges before the warm weather season fully kicks off!
With putty-colored toenails and a good leather bag, there's nothing chicer than a solid wedge. They can be dressed up or down, paired with shorts and a nautical-themed top or even a long jumper (if you dare!) to stay on trend. Only a long one, though. Those short rompers just look like onesies to me... I'm thinking of getting a few pairs as the perfect summer sleep/loungewear.
As heavy-duty footwear, you can also always rely on your wedges to keep a diaphanous dress from being too sweet. Make them work appropriate by pairing with a sleek, skinny pant and dressy blouse, but just make sure the pant isn't too tight. Don't worry about how high the shoe is, either; wedges support the entire foot and don't have the scare factor of a pair of towering high heels. This is definitely THE shoe of Spring 2010.
I'm thinking of wearing t-strap wedges, ankle socks, and a light, pastel dress with cardigan for my mothers wedding, which will be held in June. A belted skirt-and-shirt combo, like this look from Fendi's Spring 2009 line, could also work:
Those shoes are fantastic!
