Wedges are an essential kind of footwear when summer rolls in though there are plenty of styles that keep popping up all year round. From wedge pumps to sneaker wedges, there are so many trends that you have almost limitless options to wear from morning till the night.

If you’re looking to make a style statement with wedges this season, here are 5 types you should consider:

Cut Out Wedges

Cut out wedges essentially are the kind that have some sort of cut out pattern to them. This cut out may be in a laddered pattern, it could be geometric shapes, floral patterned, or something more abstract. Cut out wedges may have other variations to them as well.

Some cut out wedges have lace up fronts that give them some more personality. Cut out wedges in neutral colors such as beige may well be appropriate for everyday wear. Other styles such as laser cut outs and metallic colors are more apropos for formal wear and clubbing as they made more of a rowdy style statement.

Studded Leather Wedges

Studded clothing and accessories are the rage in the fashion industry. It’s no wonder that wedges have caught up with this trend as well. Studded leather wedges are most popular in styles that have the sides of the wedges covered entirely with studs rather than the front of the wedges.

However, if that’s too edgy for you, there are several more options depicting ‘tame’ styles of studded leather like Minnetonka Moccasins wedges available.

Sneaker Wedges

This style of wedges is a classic and has no chance of getting old. Mary Janes are mostly plain with an ankle strap to give off a school girlish kind of look.
