Weighing in on Wedges

‘Tis the season for wearing wedges! Wedges pair perfectly with almost any summer outfit, and they flatter all figures as well. An outfit adorned with a posh pair of wedges ignites instant style, and embraces comfort. The fact that such a cute shoe can efficiently elongate the leg is wonderful. For those who are slightly height-challenged, these shoes are perfect for you, because of the fact that they add inches onto your natural height. In addition, they are extremely versatile in the sense that they can appropriately be worn during the day, yet they can comfortably be worn during evening hours.

There are several styles and shapes of wedges that work with specific styles. Some tend to be more on the simpler side and can go with a more casual, day-time outfit, and others are embellished with rhinestones and ribbons ideal for a more formal occasion. Here are some of the wedges outside of my personal collection that epitomize style and vogue:

Maxi Dress Madness

Good Morning Fashionistas, incase you didn’t know, ITS MAXI DRESS SEASON! Here are some different types of maxi dresses that you can search for in the desired store you wish to shop at, as well as some maxi dress wearing tips. Maxi dresses are the absolute trendiest apparel item that you can wear to a more-than-casual but less-than-formal occasion. For example, last Saturday was my friend’s graduation party, and I wore one of my maxi dresses to the event. Since the dress is cotton, it definitely dresses down the look, however, the fact that it is a dress spices up the femininity, establishing the ideal look.

There is only ONE rule when it comes to donning a maxi dress: DO NOT PAIR WITH WEDGES!

When pairing this elongated dress with elongated shoes, the look becomes completely warped. The shoes do not compliment the dress (or vice versa), because they both are huge fashion statements that do not work well together. So keep the shoe game simple wearing flat sandals, and you can never go wrong.

The following are a few different maxi dress styles that are up for grabs under several various brands. Take your pick!
