Working class women will definitely love this trend, it is so lovely and stylish, and I know young girls will not fall for this outfit, because it looks more mature and formal. The lady in the picture above has pulled off a floral print long skirt; it is a free style skirt which you can wear to work or church. When it comes to choosing a top, you have to wear something slim, just like that white tank top, in most cases, when you wear a heavy skirt; you need to match it with a slim top so that you don’t look overweight. The brown wedge sandals have durable upper leather and a snug fit, their sole is raised enough so you will get some extra height, when it comes to comfort, the flat sole will give you all the comfort you need.


  • Young girls, I will not let you down, you can wear these brown wedge sandals with a short leather mini skirt. If you love brown color, you can opt for a brown leather mini skirt and complement it with a cream / tundra yellow blouse, tuck in the blouse just a little bit so that you look fashionable. Also, open the last two buttons of the blouse and fold the sleeves of the blouse, accessorize the chest with a chunk necklace. If you love shades, you can go for dark brown round sunglasses, for the sake of the bag, a brown leather tote bag will be the best option.




Unlike pumps which seem to be complicated and uncomfortable to wear the all day long, you will love this idea of wearing shorts with wedge flats. When it comes to fashion, you should always opt for outfits which are comfortable, please. Before you dress to impress the public, make sure you’re comfortable and impressed, because the people you mind to impress might not even care. In the picture above, I have featured a beautiful woman wearing blue shorts with stripped white & blue wedge sandals. She complemented the blue shorts with a white shirt sleeve lace top which features a deep v-neck, and for the bag, the white handbag matches very well with the top / shoes and the shorts.

Sometimes you don’t need to match so many colors, in our example above, the lady played with only two colors and she looks pretty and simple.


  • On the other hand, you can alter this style and go for a different color. In this case, you can wear brown khaki shorts, complement the shorts with a cream sleeveless blouse which has ruffles, and then match the all trend with brown suede cages wedges, the best bag for this kind of outfit should be a brown leather mini saddle bag which you can hold from the shoulder. Remember to tuck in the blouse, and then accessorize the shorts with a brown leather trendy belt.
  • This option will work for ladies who love white. Instead of the blue / brown shorts, you can wear white sailor shorts and complement them with a steel blue scoop neck t-shirt. Match the outfit with blue wedge sandals, however, you can as well replace the blue top & wedges with red top and stripped white & red wedge sandals.

These blue and white stripped wedge sandals are trendy and comfortable, they have colorful stripes, you can wear with a simple plain outfit. You can choose any color of your choice because they come in yellow & white / blue & white / red & white / pink & white.  So, let’s take a good example on how to style these shoes. Simply wear white lace shorts and match them with a blue sleeveless ponti peplum top, the blue top will complement the blue stripes in the wedges, now you can conclude the outfit with a brown mini suede handbag.

On the other hand, if you love yellow, you can fore-go these blue & white stripped wedges and opt for yellow & white stripped wedges, you can match them with the same white shorts, but at this time, go for a blue peplum top, please….  Don’t forget to accessorize with crystal necklace which matches with your outfit.

Without doubt, all types of wedge shoes can match with skinny jeans. It does not matter if you have sneaker wedges / pumps / flats; they will easily go with these skinny jeans. So your choice is very wide with this option. In the picture above, I have featured a beautiful lady wearing white skinny jeans and an off brown sweater shirt, she complemented the jeans with classic full leather ankle strap wedge sandals which I think is a lovely trend. If you want to wear skinny jeans to work on a Friday, this will be a cool option for you.


  • White jeans are not easy to maintain especially when your environment is full of dust, however, this should not stop you from wearing skinny jeans with wedge sandals. In this case, you can wear denim blue skinny jeans with a simple fade / damage, and then complement them with a white tank top, add value to this trend by wearing grey wedge sandals and a mint wool jumper that is if the weather is cold. When it comes to choosing a bag, a white shoulder strap bag will be the best choice.


Change your style this weekend and rock the streets like those trendy models you always see on TV. There is something trendy with slim girls; they tend to look good with almost any fashion trend. However, this should not scare you; every woman has their unique beautiful body structure.  So, don’t stress yourself on those dry diets simply because you want to slimmer. In our featured photo above, the lady pulled off black glittering leather pants and she matched them with pure black wedge sneakers.  Since the leather pants are tight on the body, it is okay to wear an overweight jacket / sweater / cape. This is a cool fashion trend for winter seasons, because the wedge sneakers will stop around the ankles and the leather pants can store enough warmth. However, in summer, you might consider fabric leggings because it will be very hot.

These red wedges are quite different from the black wedges featured in the above post. You can either go for the red color or chose a color of your choice. You can wear these wedge suede sneakers in so many ways and these include:

  • Wearing them with skinny jeans: – There is a small difference between leggings and skinny jeans that is why these two outfits can be styled in a similar manner. To look beautiful, you need to tuck in the jeans into these wedge sneakers and then complement the jeans with a slim top or a round neck fitting t-shirt. Red shoes look better when matched with white / black skinny jeans. Denim blue jeans don’t look nice with red wedge sneakers, so should avoid blue with red wedge sneakers.
  • You can as well wear shorts with these sneaker wedges: in this case, you can try Capri shorts or short denim skirts. Shorts tend to balance this kind of trend, all eyes will flow upwards and downwards, so each piece will get its own attention.
  • Try high low skirts with sneaker wedges: – Now someone might be wondering how this can happen, do you mean to say you have not seen ladies wearing sneakers with casual dresses? If not, I’m sorry to ask, but yes, you can wear these wedge sneakers with a high low dress. Choose a color which matches with the dress, avoid over mixing colors, you might end up clashing them.



Cropped pants have their own style which makes them unique and fashionable; you may wear cropped pants to work in a trendy way depending on the type of work place. Hope the dress code is not too strict. In this case, you can wear them with caged flat wedge sandals, let’s take a simple example from the lady in the photo above, she pulled off black cropped pants with black caged wedge sandals and then she complemented the trend with a knit sweater. It is a lovely trend which looks both casual and formal at the same time.

Color matching is very crucial when it comes to fashion, so always remember to dress in appropriate manner, choose and balance your colors basing on your skin tone, because ladies with bright skin colors look better in dark colors like black and vise versa.




In position 2, we talked about this point of wearing shorts with wedge sandals; however, this time I’m putting the all emphasis on high waist shorts, which are no doubt trendy and fashionable. If you’re a great fan of shorts, I’m sure you will fall for this style. The striped snake-effect leather wedge pumps featured above are classic in style, so you need to complement them with a super fine outfit. In this case, you can use the example featured by the lady above, or you come up with your own style because fashion is all about creativity. If you have a casual date or a movie date, this is the best outfit you should opt for.
