We've gotten an influx of gorgeous summer shoes these past couple of weeks, including many new flats and sandals. This week, we wanted to share our love for a petite girl's best friend: wedge heels.
I love pulling out long skirts and maxis for warm weather, but being 5"2 a lot of them drag around my ankles and have had their hems destroyed from the friction ( *cue the sound of the world's tiniest violin* ). So naturally wedge heels, especially the espadrille variety, are an obsession of mine: they're a comfier alternative to pumps and stilettos, especially for work (because who wants their toes pinched for 6+ hours??) while providing a boost of confidence and height, making you look like you put in more effort than you actually did.
So without further ado, here are some of our favourite wedges in this week:
Tory Burch 'Penny' Slip-Ons (US 7)
Coming in a cheerful summery orange and a modest 2.5" wedge heel, these slip-ons by Tory Burch are perfect for girls who want a little elevation with a lot of style.
ALDO Suede Rhinestone Wedges (US 8.5)
These rhinestone studded nude-pink ALDO wedge sandals make a gorgeous formal shoe you can actually walk in! For the next drawn out shaadi, opt for these instead of a sky-high stiletto heel.
Naturalizer Pale Gold Espadrille Wedges (US 8)
Known for their ultra-comfy designs, Naturalizer brings you these subtle gold espadrilles that pair just as well with casual jeans as with semi-formal Eastern looks. Plus, the insole is wonderfully cushiony: your feet will love you for these.
ALDO Black Wedge Sneakers (US 5)
These ALDO wedge sneakers give you edgy street style with a little height. If they're good enough for Beyonce and Lucy Liu, they're good enough for me; alas, they come in a super petite size 5 which is four sizes too small for me ( *tiny violin reprise* ).
Tory Burch JACKIE Espadrille Wedges (US 7)
Like a rare double rainbow, we've got two of these stylish Tory Burch JACKIE espadrilles in the same size; one in a versatile beige jute version, and the other in black cotton lace.
