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.
Buy Now, $550

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.
Buy Now, $200

Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille

MICHAEL Michael Kors Juniper Espadrille
I love the effortless style of MICHAEL Michael Kors for summer and think these classic wedges are a no-brainer! Pack them for a weekend trip to the beach—they are all you will need when paired with a maxi dress or white jeans.

Steve Madden Riddgge

Steve Madden Riddgge
Steve Madden is the master of knocking off the best designer shoes. These wedges play to the geometric and structured looks I saw on the runway during fashion week.  They are simple and streamlined—easy to wear with all your favorite summer styles.

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.

Dolce Vita for Target

Women’s Dolce Vita for Target® Rope Wedge Sandals – Cognac
I love when great brands like Dolce Vita do affordable lines for Target.  These cool wedges are an updated version of the gladiator sandal combined with a classic espadrille wedge heel.  Plus, faux leather footwear is vegan and cruelty-free.  I like them with simple sundresses or with skinny jeans.
