Comfort is king and sneakers are in, but what about wedge sneakers? Would you wear them? I must admit I wasn’t a fan of high top wedge sneakers when they first showed up a few years ago. They looked kind of chunky and weird, but now they’re growing on me. I’ve seen a few on women our age, and surprisingly, they look kind of cool.
How to Wear Wedge Sneakers
I think I like them more now because there’s more of a variety to choose from. At first there were a lot of wild, bright colors and busy teen looking styles with too much hardware, pattern and shine. Recently I’ve noticed sleeker, more minimalist styles cropping up that are more flattering on mature women.
My petite readers seem to especially love wedge sneakers. Finally, a super casual shoe that’s comfy and gives short gals the height they crave.
BLACK LEATHER WEDGE SNEAKERS
Black wedge sneakers are easiest to wear for two reasons: black goes with everything, and black wedge sneakers kind of look like black ankle booties, which we are all used to wearing.
As for what to wear with wedge sneakers, try leather leggings and an oversize sweater, camo pants + a top, or jeans + a casual shirt. More funky types look great wearing wedge sneakers with jeans + edgy, artsy tops or asymmetrical tunics.
Utility jackets, leather jackets, jean jackets, and boyfriend jackets also look fantastic with these trendy sneakers.
I don’t suggest wearing them with a dress or skirt, or you’ll risk looking like a 40+ moonwalker! They’d be very clunky looking.
Perforated Suede Wedge Sneakers
Perforated wedge sneakers are trending for spring. The suede ones are nice. Above is a weekend look with wedge sneakers that that is casual, modern and ageless. Throw a spring utility coat over a plaid shirt, your favorite jeans and these cute perforated suede wedge sneakers.
These sneakers are sleek and sophisticated. They have no hardware, and the caramel suede is very rich looking. One of the keys to making wedge sneakers work is to keep it classy. This fabulous leather top handle bag upscales the whole look too.
