The Essential, Comfortable Wedge

28 Mar

Every fashoenista needs a great, comfy wedge sandal to pair with her sundresses, capris, skirts, and shorts. Wedge sandals are an absolute spring & summer fashion staple because the heel helps you achieve a more chic look, while adding length to your frame, and a sassy confidence to your step.

From Nicole to Gwen, we pride ourselves at LP on designing stylish wedge shoes that are both versatile and comfy. Belle - brought back by popular demand – is a core wedge  shoe for the woman who wants a “hip” lift as I call it. Belle is an also EVA wedge. EVA is a thick, environmentally-friendy foam with great shock absorption, which is part of the reason Belle is so super comfortable. So you get the height of a 2 1/2 “ heel, with the comfort of a flip flop. Genius, don’t you think? ;)

Belle’s signature strap this season features polka dots, and as I shared in my Spring Fashion Trends blog, polka dots are huge this season! With colored jeans and patterned pants being so popular this spring, the contrast of polka dots really helps you achieve that pop of color you’re going for.

 

Here I’ve paired Belle in black with pink straight leg jeans, rolled up so you can show off your wedges, and a simple white tee  matched with a spring-friendly neutral cardigan. I’m all about utilizing your closet staples, so any neutral-colored top and light-weight cardigan or jacket that you have will help achieve this look.  Add a whimsical scarf like the Sunburst Coral scarf shown above or even a funky pair of earrings in a different color family than your bottoms. If you’re really looking to experiment with color, pair Belle with a different strap – either one that brings out the color of your pants, or a complimentary color (Shown above are Celia & Sally). This look is fun, classy, and best of all –EASY!

 

 

I love this ensemble featuring our Brown Belle! This is a great example of how you can take a bright, spring-colored dress (like this season’s emerald green), pair it with a fun belt (I went with coral, but any other color or even neutral belt you have in your closet will look just as fab), add some funky, seasonal costume jewelry, and a wedge sandal like Belle.  The color palette that you choose is honestly up to you, but the idea is that you can create many different looks using the same dress and shoes! Keep Belle neutral with a strap like Cassandra OR, go for something more colorful like Lani.

 

If you haven’t used our mix and match feature @ www.lindsay-phillips.com, you’re really missing out. There are dozens of fun looks you can achieve, whether you’re going for a Classic, Glam, Urban, Sporty, or even Vintage look. Happy matching! xoxo

 

PS: If the Belle wedge is just a little too high for your taste, consider Taylor wedge, which features the same comfortable EVA footbed, with a smaller  1 1/2” heel.
