How to Wear Wedges
Wedges are one of the most versatile shoes a woman can have in her wardrobe. You’ll be forgiven in thinking that wedges are limited only to summer sandals, but in fact, wedges come in a variety of styles that will step you through every season of the year. They’re so versatile, you won’t feel guilty for owning more than one pair!
Wedge shoes and wedge boots can be a real lifesaver in winter, not only are they a stylish footwear option, but they can also add a boost to your confidence whilst adding extra height to your looks, which in turn, will lengthen the appearance of your legs. A wedge sole will help you to navigate the spells of bad weather that winter will bring, from rainy or frosty conditions a wedge heel provides a greater surface area than a heel, providing greater traction and stability.
Considerably more comfortable than a heeled pair of shoes or even a flat pair, a wedge sole is designed to redistribute the weight of your step across your entire foot, reducing painful pressure points on areas like the heels and balls of your feet, while providing support to your arches. So, if you’re on the hunt for shoes with statement heels this winter, wedges are the winning choice!
How to Wear Wedge Trainers
Wedge trainers make a great addition to casual outfits like your jeans and jumpers, perfect on the days when you have errands to run, they’ll pull your outfit together effortlessly while keeping you steady on your feet. Easy to slip on and comfortable enough to wear throughout the day, trainers with a subtle wedge heel can give a little extra boost to your height without feeling too dressy.
If you really want to indulge in some winter luxury, wedge trainers lined with fluffy faux fur offers comfort, warmth, and plenty of fun to your outfit. Get creative by matching the cosy fur linings with winter accessories like a thick woolly scarf and a hat.
How to Wear Wedge Boots
In winter, wearing your wedges in boot form will not only give your cold weather looks a stylish twist, but they’ll be the star of your wardrobe throughout the season. Super versatile, wedge boots can go with jeans or leggings for a casual look, or thick tights and dresses for a smart and elegant option.
Wearing Wedge Boots with Jeans
Of course, the appeal of wearing wedges is to make a statement and wedge heeled boots will be a safe bet for when the cold weather kicks in. A great winter outfit involves plenty of cosy layers, so slip on a pair of ankle boots decorated with a cosy ankle cuff and wear them with your jeans or trousers tucked in.
Tucking your jeans into your boots will not only keep your feet feeling warm and snug, but it will make a sleek line of your leg, which will complement bulkier layers like your knitted jumpers and woolly coats.
If you have boot-cut jeans let the hems of your jeans sit just above your boots, this will avoid any bunching around your ankles and will lengthen the appearance of your leg, plus if you choose a pair with fluffy faux fur cuffs, they’re the perfect remedy for chilly moments.
Wearing Wedge Boots with Leggings
The chunkiness of a wedge heel is the perfect complement to slim-fitting leggings, this is a great base for a wide range of outfits, but also a range of different boots too, from ankle to calf, and knee-high boots.
Leggings are a great option if you love to layer! For a quick and easy outfit that looks elegant, pull on a pair of wedge boots with a roll-neck jumper dress and chunky socks for cosy, comfortable and casual finish. To keep things smart go for a black pair of boots, or for a more relaxed look, introduce neutral shades into your knitwear and coordinate with leather boots in rich colours of chocolate or tan to add rich, to warm up even the coldest of days.
Wearing Knee High Wedge Boots
Knee high wedge boots are the ultimate choice for ladies who want stylish shoes that they can pull on at a moment’s notice. These are the kind of boots that will make a statement whether you’re dressing them up or down.
A knitted jumper dress is a great option to have in your wardrobe when the weather gets chilly, it’s a smart ready-made outfit that you can throw on quickly, no extra thought required. A jumper dress can easily be dressed up with accessories like a waist belt, or even worn with a collared shirt underneath for a chic, stylish twist.
When wearing knee high boots with a dress, it’s important to pay careful attention to where the hem of your dress falls on your leg. By following a few simple style rules, you can help elongate the appearance of your leg for a flattering finish.
Knee high boots are great for layering, wear them tucked under a mid-length dress and finish the look with a waist belt to break up the length of your dress and accentuate your figure.
Knee length dresses are also a super flattering when worn with knee boots, pop them on with thick woolly tights and don’t forget to match the colour of your boot with the patterns on your dress or accessories.
