Summer wedges and heels for every occasion

Warm weather means sandal season, and we bet you can’t wait to reintroduce these shoes to your wardrobe after a long winter. While flats are always a good choice, it’s smart to have some dress heels for summer in your closet as well. These selections are perfect for various events throughout the hotter months. Here’s how you can wear summer heels and wedges for every occasion:

Wedding time: Dance the night away in block heels

Sky-high shoes have a place and time, but if you’re looking forward to the dance party that comes with a summer wedding, a lower option may be your best bet. Block heels are all the rage this season, offering height and style without forfeiting comfort. Try a strappy sandal to set yourself apart from the crowd or go for something basic in a nude color to elongate your legs. The best thing about block heels is that they’ll never go out of style! Commuting to work is easy in this type of footwear, as is transitioning the shoe to an evening out.

Pomp and circumstance: Go for the kitten heel

May and June mark commencement time, when children, nieces and nephews are graduating from high school and college. These ceremonies can be lengthy, requiring you to stand for long periods of time. For maximum comfort, try a kitten heel. No, it’s not the 80s! This type of shoe is trending yet again and is the perfect choice for graduation fashion, where being chic and ladylike is the way to go. Kitten heels are incredibly functional, easy to walk in and won’t hurt your posture.

Garden party: Slip on some mules

When the weather is so lovely, friends and family will want to be outside. Outdoor parties are common in the summer, especially for holidays like the Fourth of July, but you’ll need an appropriate shoe option that’s easy to walk in – no matter the surface. Mules or heeled clogs are perfect for events taking place in grassy backyards and are simple to slip on and off as need be. Try a pair in a bright color to really play up your look!

Date night: Try an espadrille wedge

You and your significant other have been looking forward to being able to sit outside, have a glass of wine and enjoy one another’s company. Date nights, especially those that last an entire evening, require heels that aren’t too difficult to walk in. Colorful wedges are perfect for these occasions! Wear them to dinner and a movie before finishing your night with a stroll around town. An espadrille version can be a bit more casual, so go with what works with your outfit.
