So this may be a slightly controversial post, because today, I will be talking about – wedge sneakers.
When I first heard about the concept I was horrified, and like most fashion trends I come around to them. Granted I started out with a $20 pair from Target, but I really like these (although my mom and sisters are currently trying to talk me out of them – thoughts?!).
Zara Jacket (similar), Grandma’s Necklace, Gap Sweater, Joe’s Leather Coated Jeans (on sale!), Banana Republic Clutch, Target Sneakers
I find these to be the most COMFORTABLE shoes, and while I’m not all aboard the “wear your Nike Frees with your brunch outfit movement,” I am working on introducing them to somewhat classic outfits – because it is very ideal to run your weekend errands in these (not gonna lie).
I have a few personal “rules” when it comes to wearing these shoes:
- Do not pull your wedge sneakers out from the 90’s – you know… this and this pair? It’s ALL about the HIDDEN wedge.
- Dressing is all about proportion (general rule) – but because the sneaker can be a bit bulky on your foot, leggings or skinny jeans are a must. A large sweatshirt, or longer jacket on top helps to balance out the look.
- Use this look for errand running/sporting events. Do not rock wedge sneakers at work, dinners out (unless you are ordering your meal from a counter) or anywhere you don’t want to deal with people commenting on said sneakers (it’s going to happen).
Despite the rules and regulations, I have had some of the most productive days in these shoes. You feel bada**, and it is the joy of wearing heels (good posture, certain body parts look particularly nice, etc.) but with the comfort of a sneaker – what isn’t to like!?
What fashion trend have you been into that no one else seems to be on board with?
