It has often been debated that wedges aren’t as popular and happening as stilettos, even though these block heels remain in trend time and again. Wedges are high on comfort and great on walking for long, but there are a few reasons why many women would pick a pair of high street heels with the same amount of money. Firstly, wedges don’t tend to accentuate the height or add to the length of the legs, which certainly is not something we want with dresses and skirts. Secondly, many wedges have the same or similar kind of appeal despite the fact that colour choices are as better as other heel counterparts.
Back in vogue for spring summer 2014: This is where one thinks of innovation in the old school, and the smart cut-out wedges come in the scene. Cut-out wedges aren’t something that you haven’t seen or tried, but they are often missed out as the front runners in fashion. Thanks to Jill Stuart, cut-out wedges seem to be one of the interesting trends for spring summer 2014. While there is nothing unconventional about the shoes he has designed, but the use of wood in the design and retaining its natural beauty is what catches the eye. You may surely not find the same design, unless you have the money to splurge in the designer’s collection, but this is something worth taking note.
How to wear cut-out designs? Cut-out wedges work in the same way as wedges do for most dresses, but grab all the attention for sure. While the cut-out designs don’t seem to be doing anything with the slimness and height, they do ensure that you don’t just be a part of the crowd. The best way to team these new age wedges is to pair them with skirts and dresses that will tend to add some look to the lower legs.
Honestly, this is not something that you will wear for office, and that doesn’t mean you cannot wear them to cocktail events and formal parties. Apart from the dresses and skirts, cut-out wedges also look cool and smart with skinny denims and trousers, best with the ones that end above the ankle. Your shoes can be in complete contrast or can be a part of the look colour theme, as it calls for the occasion. Make sure that you don’t add too many accessories or other things, because this is something that will keep getting glares, and obviously you don’t want too much of unwanted attention.
Check for the options: Most of the cut-out wedges don’t come cheap, and only a few brands make these kinds of designs. Even the variety and designs are often limited. None of the designs, at least the ones we have found, compromises on comfort but remains high on style. Pick something for the summer and spring because this is something that may soon come off as a new style rather than just being called a new style of wedges.
In terms of materials and colours, the options are varied, and as always we insist, go for the brands that are animal free. Take a pick!
