It's that time of the year for spring formals, outdoor concerts, and al fresco dining. The first time I slip on my favorite pair in the warm weather I feel like Cinderella putting on her glass slippers. Minus the fact that I make sure I don’t lose the other one at a party! Here are Her Campus's 20 favorite wedges:
Beach Bum: These Forever 21 wedges come in a tan or charcoal color that will look incredible with a simple cover-up for an outdoor patio party.
Forever 21, $27
Pop of Color: Now that it’s spring it's time to mix up your wardrobe with fun colors and patterns. This color orange is unique and on-trend and will look amazing with a floral pattern.
Charlotte Russe, $30
Sky High: These are for the girls who can strut their stuff in extremely tall wedges. They may not be ideal for class, but perfect for a formal event.
Classy Cork: This very simple black canvas shoe with a cork wedge isn't too high, so it's manageable to trek to any party.
Wet Seal, $20
Simply Straw: The high buckle and the straw material make this 5 ½ heel wedge too adorable to pass up.
Ravishing in Red: I adore these red jelly wedges. Red is all the rage this season, so wear it with a LBD or even an LWD.
Plenty of Platform: As a child, I desperately wanted shoes like the Spice Girls wore. Now my dreams can come true with these adorable gladiator-like platforms from H&M.
Fancy and Formal: I love the simplicity of these gorgeous suede wedges. They will complete your outfit for an elegant affair.
C LABEL, $46
Utterly Unique: These wedges scream Nicki Minaj. The colors are fun and they'll make your day brighter!
Awesomely Aztec: This is another Aztec-inspired piece for the season to add to your closet. The toe and ankle strap give these wedges an unusual yet stylish look.
No Nonsense Neutral: The low wedge makes these neutral daytime shoes easier to walk in than most heels. Since they’re a neutral color they will go with almost anything!
YOLO Yellow: You only live once, so why not incorporate some sunshine yellow into your wardrobe? Dress the shoes up with a skirt or down with a simple pair of jean shorts and a plain white tee.
I Heart Hardware: The structured look makes these wedges classic. Choose the gorgeous brown or go with the simple black.
Candy Colored Footwear: One of my favorite pairs of wedges on the list are these pink and blue strappy sandals. This is the perfect combination of colors for a great spring shoe.
Crazy Cutouts: I adore the cutouts in these adorable wedges. If you're not a fan of blue, they also come in pink, black, white, and nude.
Totally Toms: Who knew that Toms makes wedges too? They're absolutely chic, and your purchase gets a child a new pair of shoes as well.
Perfectly Plum: These wedges are particularly special because of the interesting purple that will make your outfit pop. If you don't like purple they also come in black, grey, and nude.
Steve Madden, $100
Basic Bandage: For a comfortable and simple pair of shoes, these Zara wedges will look great for any party whether it's a cocktail party or a graduation party.
Cool in Closed - Toed: These powder blue closed-toe shoes are perfect for daytime with an adorable floral dress or even boyfriend shorts and a simple shirt.
Stunningly Simple: As I said before, I'm a tall woman and I'm not very good at walking around in heels. So I like to stick with shoes closer to the ground. My favorite wedge is this simple Nine West wedge with a slight ankle strap. I plan on wearing my pair during the day, for graduation, and even after parties!
Nine West, $79
