STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Put Some Spring in Your Step

Sometimes, particularly when you're deep into a season, a product or trend can be in so ubiquitous that it's hard to know where to start. Such can be the case with spring summer sandals. With so many variations out there, from gladiators to this season’s newest flatform style, choosing sandals isn't as easy as wearing them for a walk in the park. But fear not, this Fashionista shows just how the wedge can strike the right style note.

While I agree that Havaianas flip-flops and flat strappy sandals are quintessential summer necessities, investing in a pair of neutral-colored wedges is just as important. Like a blazer or floral frock, wedges are a nice way to incorporate some quick and easy polish to your look. After all, a couple extra inches of height has never hurt anyone. This Fashionista makes the smart choice of keeping her color palette filled with blues and browns. The cropped jeans are a great way to show off the shoes and the leather jacket adds a little of the edgy, urban style that has come to define our generation.

To aid you in your shopping process, I would like to offer a few suggestions as to what wedges may be excellent additions to your wardrobe. Because this year is all about nude tones, stick with the basic white, tan or brown. Ash offers some stylish options to jumpstart your way into the warmer weather, such as their ‘Lucy’ Sandals and their ‘Marilyn’ Wedge Sandals. Another one of my go-to retailers for quality shoes is Nine West. Since meeting the company’s creative director, Fred Allard, last year, I have been obsessed with the line’s young and tasteful aesthetic. Check out their ‘Nacia’ Wedges, which will give you a fresh confidence as you walk through campus, the park or the boardwalk.
