Although the shoes look great, it is completely unrealistic to caption open- toed shoes with 4-6 inch heels as work shoes. Unless you are working the streets after dark. We do love to look fashionable at work, but I cannot even sit for 5 hours wearing shoes that bend my feet into an unnatural shape, let alone walk three blocks to lunch in them or walk back and forth to the copying machine all day. Would welcome some great styles and colors for work that have no higher than a 3 inch heel. And don't suggest flats--they make my legs look short and fat. Already warm here in Florida, but heading to Chicago in April.

Similar to the wedge sandal, the standard wedge heel is a raised shoe with a completely solid heel that runs the length of the style, meaning that there is no gap between the front and back of the shoe. The block nature of the wedge makes it a great, stylish walking shoe that is both comfortable and totally cute. Women's wedge heels can be made out of different materials such as raffia, wood or cork, and add behomian flair to any ensemble!
Keep reading for some suggestions from the JustFab Style Experts about how to wear your fave new wedge heels!
How to Wear Women's Wedge Heels
Kimora Lee Simmons, President & Creative Director, wears this style with jeans:
“I love pairing wedge heels with high-waisted, wide-legged jeans. When you walk, the cuff of the pant will flow a little, revealing a playful sneak peek at your striking new wedge heels! Wear a fitted top to really flaunt your figure, and carry a large tote for a sharp and sophisticated statement.”
Angela Fink, Style Expert, uses wedge heels to give off a feminine appearance:
“I suggest wearing wedge heels with sundresses for an unbeatable feminine appearance. You can pick styles in pastels, patterns or solids - all will look great depending on your outfit. I really love pairing wedge heels with a nautical-themed outfit. For example, match a striped sundress with solid white or navy wedge heels with raffia details, or reverse it and try a solid sundress in white or navy with a striped wedge. Use your bag or jewelry to add a hint of red to the outfit for a fun, flawless look.”
Nina Lenders, Style Expert, goes for a more carefree look:
“Wedges are great with white jeans! You can pick any color or material, and they will pop against the clean white color. Pair with a flirty top in a bright hue for a bold, carefree look, and add chunky jewelry to complete your outfit.”
Daisy Lewellyn, Style Expert, loves the mix of style and comfort offered by wedge heels:
“Wedges are every girl's shoe savior! No matter if your'e pounding the pavement at the mall or headed to the office, they are a stylish comfy shoe dream come true. I love pairing them with flirty skirts or bohemian embellished ethnic tunics. You're sure to look free-spirited and fabulous!”
Dos and Don'ts:
DO: Try wedge heels in different patterns and textures to create fresh, fantastic ensembles!
DON'T: Wear heavy wedge heels with a floor-length ball gown. The chunky quality will clash with the elegance of your look.
We'd love to hear how you rock this style! We welcome everyone to post a comment below with their thoughts and advice on how they wear women's wedge heels.
Love your shoes but how about putting in some wide width and listing the separately for those of us (and I'm sure there are many) that do not have a slender foot. We love to wear cute heals as well....very much a lacking in the shoe industry!!
Hey! I also have wider feet. I use the reviews quite a bit - a lot of people post very helpful ones. Good luck!
@kapys13 We appreciate your feedback and will share it with the rest of the team. Feel free to check out the member reviews on each product for more fit info.
@kapys13 I also have wide feet, which makes it very difficult to find cute flats to wear.
