Updated on July 15, 2009

Wedge shoes are fun and very trendy, and when the weather warms up, they are hard to resist. Even if you don't normally wear heels, it's easy to add a bit more height when adding wedges to any outfit. Whether you want to dress up or dress down the wedge is the way to go if you want to make a trendy fashion statement. You can wear them with flowing skirts, dresses, or you can even dress down in a pair of jeans.  Wedges are very popular, not only because of their versatility, but because they have a moderate heel, and are more comfortable to wear then your typical high heeled shoe.

Dressing-up with Wedges

Dressy Metallics Lumiani "P1994" Wedge Shoes available at Zappo' is another way to go if you want something a little more dressy.  They come in a variety of colors, from pink, purple, orange, green, blue, gold, and silver. 

How to wear wedges with jeans

Adding style to your favorite wide-legged jeans is easy when you pair them with the perfect fit of the popular wedge shoe. Since the wide-legged style tends to make some look shorter then they are, the wedge shoe can be the perfect answer, because they can help anyone look better by giving them the appearance of longer legs. If you're looking for a shoe to go with a more fitted style of jean, then the wedge is to be used with caution if you have narrow legs. Wearing a wedge in this situation, especially if you have larger feet, can make you look too foot heavy.

      I just bought a pair of wedge shoes, they are so cute and my absolute favorite would have to be the VOLATILE Celebration Womens Wedge Platform Shoes mostly because of the fun high bottom.
