Statement Wedges

Wedges are one of my favorite shoe silhouettes. Never clunky or bulky, wedges elongate the legs and add height. If you’re like me, at 5’4” whose Joe’s Jeans petites are too long, that’s a good thing.

Cork wedges, espadrille wedges, and other materials are among my favorites. And because the wedge’s sole is flat to the ground, they are amazingly easy to wear all day long.

My Calypso St. Barth wedge espadrilles from Target made their debut on this past weekend’s embassy tours. I walked for miles all day and felt like a queen. They were comfortable and stylish. My minnies were impressed!

Here are some of my favorite wedges for spring in all shapes, styles, and budgets.

Tory Burch's
Carnell peeptoe wedge is elegant and stylish. You'll only have to pack one pair of shoes in your suitcase because these are perfect with jeans, dresses, and skirts. This color is so popular for spring. Another fabulous option is a coral color that will match all of your Tory tunics or Lilly dresses.

Summertime means seersucker! These flirty wedges from Sperry Top-Sider are a preppy update to a summer classic. Love!

Pre-order your Lilly Pulitzer Resort Chic wedges now before they're gone! The lattice detail on the wedge makes these worthy of showing off under your maxi dresses this summer.

Now for the pièce de résistance...the Lanvin puzzle peep toe wedge pump is an interesting update on the wedge. I love the puzzle-like look of these shoes.

What is your favorite summer shoe? Which statement wedges do you like the most?


Shopping Guide

  1. I always admire high heeled shoes but at 5'9" I feel like a giant wearing them. My favorite are the flirty Sperry Top-Sider wedges!

  2. I have the Calypso wedges as well as the Lilly Resort Chic wedges and LOVE them both! They both can be worn with so much and they are extra comfy too. Even though I am tall, I still wear these now and then if I want to dress it up!

  3. I am loving wedges right now. I have a pair from Talbots and another gold pair I picked up for Derby and other summer events. So flattering for the legs!

  4. JMW ~ Talbots is suprisingly gorgeous lately! I used to pass it by in the mall, but they've got some great pieces.

  5. Love them all! Seersucker, Lilly, and Tory, oh my!

  6. Love these choices-- especially the Calypso pair!

  7. After seeing Kate wearing them I have decided I must have a pair...they will be perfect with all of my summer dresses!

  8. I tried on the Calypso wedges this past weekend, and I'm so torn about whether to buy them or not. They were super comfortable, but I've always been more of a flats/sandals girl. Decisions, decisions ...

  9. I'm so glad the Calypso wedges are comfy! My fav wedges are kelly green strappy leather with wood soles...look great with white pants!

  10. I want the Lilly Resort wedges!!! They are gorgeous! I may have to invest in a pair!
