Comfortable yet slimming, sporty yet sexy — the wedge sneaker is one of those ingenious designs that makes you wonder “Why didn’t I think of that?” But while the concept is simple, styling the hybrid shoe can prove to be a bit tricky. Fortunately, we have some easy tips for creating both casual and eye-catching looks.
If you’re going for a laid-back look with a little lift, sporty styling is the place to start. Think skinny jeans (in dark denim or black) paired with updated sweatshirts and slouchy graphic tees. Throw in delicate jewelry and a structured bag to hint at your femininity.
For a look that’s more unexpected, seek out girly silhouettes that contrast your sneaker’s informal vibe. We love fit-and-flare or bodycon dresses, full skirts and tailored rompers. Check out our favorite duos below.
