Wedges are an incredible shoe for the summer, since they are still very dressy but comfortable at the same time. To show off your killer-tan, choose a colour such as brown or black (since this can also go with almost any outfit).

If you plan on wearing wedges for a long time, choose a pair which has a tiny platform – this will keep your feet happy all night long!

There’s no doubt about it that espadrilles are definitely staying in trend for summer. They come in a variety of different shapes, sizes and styles, all of which are flattering on every foot!

If your outfits are mostly monochrome, choose a fun pattern which will remain as the focal point of your entire outfit.

Every girl needs a pair of thick heels in their life – they’re easy to walk in, flatter the foot, and are appropriate for almost any time of formal event. Choose between gold and silver hardware if you shoes have an ankle strap, and make sure to match it with your other accessories.

Last and not least have to be mules. Love it or leave it, but this trend has been resurrected from the late 90s, and it’s not going back anytime soon! Not only are mules extremely versatile, but they are a subtle and secure way to dress up your outfit without going over the top.
