Since the 1970s, wedge sandals have been an essential part of a sizzling summer. We regularly spot them on stars who to appear to have adopted summer as their very own season: Chiara Farragani, Olivia Palermo and our favorite Frenchie, Parisian Jeanne Damas. These fashion heroines, whose very names are synonymous with basking in the sun, grasp the opportunity to slip into their wedge sandals at the first sign of warmth.
With their solid sole anchoring you firmly to the ground, wedge sandals are a comfortable and ultra-feminine summer shoe. The sole acts like a platform, giving the shoe great stability. Whether you’re short or tall, slim or curvy, a wedge sandal suits all body shapes. In your Vanessa Wu wedge sandals you’re instantly 9 cm taller, without compromising on comfort, style or the ability to walk.
We love these platform wedge sandals for the slender profile and elongated silhouette they provide. This season, opt for a denim or suede wedge for a natural, unapologetically elegant look. The rest of your outfit should be simple and understated. A more minimalist approach in nude tones allows the wedge sandal to unleash its full feminine potential. You see, you don’t need magic to be at the cutting edge of fashion if you’re on the right platform!
When your legs are slightly tanned, nothing accentuates them more than a pair of rope wedge espadrille sandals. The woman who wears wedge espadrilles is the ‘French Touch’ personified, from somewhere between the Basque Country and the beaches of Saint-Tropez. During the day, wedge espadrilles are perfect for dressing up a casual outfit - denim shorts and a ruffle blouse or white T-shirt. And when night falls, they add a natural and rather poetic je-ne-sais-quoi to your evening look. Like A Midsummer Night’s Dream - in wedges!
