SS06 Shoe Trend: Wedges Updated

Wedges: Some people love them and some people hate them. Well, at least that's how I feel -love them because no matter how high they are, they are still comfortable. But no matter what outfit you match them with, they just don't look as fabulous as heels. Anyways, wedges are really just a leftover trend brought over from last summer. This season's wedges are more modern and compliment better with this season's plain clothes.

Only Prada can make this kind of wicker basket material look classy!

Canvas Rope Sandals by Miu Miu. So cute and pretty! These will match perfectly with a plain white or white & red dress.

Another pair of super pretty wedges. This one is by this season's IT shoe brand, Christian Louboutin.

For something just as casual but less credit-damaging, this pair of Eyelet Ankle Wrap Wedges from Urban Outfitters is definately worth buying.

OK, so those were the very summer-y wedges. This pair of Embroidered Wedge by Miu Miu is very sophisticated, which is a quality not often seen in wedges. (Wedges usually give off a chunky and funky vibe.)

Another pair from Miu Miu (yes, I do love Miu Miu shoes,) but this pair is more funky and artistic.

By Charlotte Ronson. I like the small buckles at the front and back -they make the shoes more fitting and add style to the shoes! The baby blue colour also makes the shoes cute instead of serious.

And of course, how can we forget patent leather this season? I'm getting a 'royal court' vibe from the Ria sandals by Bebe.

Surprise! This tres chic wedge pump is not by Chloe! This one is actually from Aldo, and most importantly actually affordable. Love this one. Just FYI, the one by Chloe has a leather bow at the ankle instead of a buckle.

Lastly, I just want to remind everyone what NOT to buy when selecting wedges:
(Left) The shoes should not have the same patent leather material at the upper 'shoe' bit and the lower wedge bit, especially if the shoes are of such a shocking colour. It just looks tacky. (Right) Another thing to avoid is cork material wedge -it just look cheap!

I love wedges, I still remember the summer (about 1998?) that Prada came out with the branded (is that the right word? designs were burnt onto the leather covered wedge part of the shoe) wedges.

one word, INCREDIBLE!

Cool! I'm always looking for a way to get a lift for the summer and wedges always look bright and summery. I have a couple of pairs by Christian Louboutin that I love~ they go really well with summer shorts.

However, I think I'm breaking your rule. My absolute favorite pair are the Marc Jacobs patent leather wedges that were featured on his runway show. (picture) I think if it's done in a tasteful color and has some texture to it, you can wear a wedge that is all one fabric. ;)

how could you leave out the pretty, pretty Chloe wedges all throughout their runway show?? i LOVE all of those!! :)
but thanks for putting in the aldo ones, ive been looking everywhere for wedges like those that were (obviously) less money. like $60-100.

I have to disagree with the cork wedges comment. I think it can be done if it is in a neutral color.I also think that the color could be done with a neutral outfit or a pant. The more outrageous the outfit the more tack the shoe looks.
I have a pair of cork screw sandals and I love them! The straps even have the cork theme with tiny bits of gold material intertwined.

I love a pair of white Versace wedges I saw in a magazine...the straps were silk and they were all white. Not at all practical but oh-so glamorous compared to some of the cork/espadrille/wooden wedges you see in knock-off stores.

I don't have a really good shoes taste, but I think that that collection of shoes are pretty nice, and that's why I won't show this post to my wife because if I do, she will want these shoes!
