Wedges for Summer

There’s no better shoe to wear in summer than a wedge (unless you are a true blue Aussie and always reach for your trusty pluggers before leaving the house).

Wedges are great because they give you the height of a heel with the comfort of a flat. A winning combo all round!

With a fit that is simple and a look that is stylish, wedges are an instant summer staple to add to your wardrobe. 

Depending on the height of the wedge, it is a style you can certainly wear to school. Wedges also make the perfect shoe for an outdoors event on grass too.


Wedges and a summer dress are an instant winning combo. They flatter the legs and can provide a slimming effect while making a statement. Opt for dresses with a high-low hemline, maxi or short length (anything really). Just make sure your dress isn’t too formal or blockish, since some styles can be more on the casual side.


If you want to dress up your denim, wedges are your go-to. Skinny, ripped or boyfriend, the right wedge can add a statement.

Opt for open toe styles when wearing denim to elongate your legs. .

For your top, consider a crop top, graphic t-shirt, or a lightweight blouse. If you’re heading out in the evening, go with a blazer.


A wedge is an easy way to dress an outfit up when wearing shorts in summer. A wedge goes with denim shorts, high-waisted pleated shorts or linen shorts. Once again, opt for an open toed style to elongate your leg.

The perfect wedge style depends on the type of shorts you’re wearing. Less structured shorts would be great teamed back with a cork or espadrille style. A more fitted pair would work with an ankle tie.
