The Hottest Neutral Wedge Sandals this Season

By Melissa Meyers

I’m seeing wedges everywhere these days; there are so many chic choices!  If you’re going to add one wedge sandal to your wardrobe this summer, then why not add a neutral pair you can wear with everything? Check out six of my favorites to choose from whatever your budget.

Alexander Wang Kasia Whipstitch Wedge
I spotted (and splurged on) these when I saw them at Edit Boutique.  They are the perfect dress up or dress down wedges and super chic—love the details. I recently paired them with a pale pink Ramy Brook dress and then the next day with jeans and a tee shirt.

Ash Wedge

Ash “Lucy” Wedge Sandals
I am a big fan of these 5” platform wedge sandals (being that I am a petite 5’4).  Check out the vintage studded accents—so hip and retro-cool. They look great with a pair of wide leg jeans, a white tank and a long chunky necklace.

To capture the look of the 70’s, these boho chic wedges are perfect.  The macramé detail is on trend and feminine.  Looks great when paired with a simple sheath or worn with cut off jean shorts.
