Forget diamonds—heels are a modern girl’s best friend. (But perhaps
not always the most practical one!) Meet the wedge: It gives you instant height,
but is way easier to hit the streets in. Want options? We have five different
wedges for five different summer looks, so you’re never bored.
Look 1: Black wedges
Pair black, chunky, velvet wedges with girlier pieces to
make a perfect outfit for any summer night. Try a bright colored blazer with
lace shorts, and to dress it down, some homemade rainbow friendship bracelets.
Look 2: Tribal-print
Don’t shy away from fun, printed wedges. These tribal kicks
from Chinese Laundry go great with simpler pieces, like a shirtdress and a
classic accessory like this chunky gold watch.
Look 3: Nude wedges
Natural, skin-toned colored wedges add length to the leg and
can be worn with practically anything. Try a colored jean, like these pretty
pink skinnies and a cute floral tank.

Look 4: Neon wedges
Pops of neon color are, err, popping up all over the place!
And a cute neon wedge is a perfect hint of color with your LBD. Try layering a
couple chunky necklaces to make a statement up top.

Look 5: Bow wedges
To add a touch of girly to your outfit, look no further than
a wedge with a cutesy bow. To keep your ensemble from being too princess-y,
wear a graphic tee with some bold shorts and a woven belt.
