You might be more of a girl in skinny stilettos, but summer has come, with its mix of backyard barbecues, outdoor concerts, poolside parties and lazy afternoons spent. hanging out in the park, you might want to swap out those high heels for something a little easier to navigate. (After all, there’s nothing worse than ruining a pair of heels by ramming them into the grass.) Our perfect summer shoe silhouette is as chic as it is versatile: the wedge sandal.
A wedge heel provides stability in the grass while giving you a nice increase in height. Plus, they do a great job of lengthening your figure without the pain of a dizzying stiletto heel. Just because you have to put your heels away at certain times in the summer doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style!
