Topshop has consistently climbed the fashion charts to become one of the hottest online apparel and accessory stores. Based in the UK, Topshop is now considered a trendsetter with the chicest designs. Their most popular styles of wedges are large, chunky shoes with very little skin showing and plenty of texture.
These massive wedges have a soft suede exterior, gigantic 5-inch heels with about a 2-inch platform, an upper with tiny diamond cutouts and a lace-up front. For this fall, be sure to get it in the dark emerald hue to match the trends. It also comes in black and crimson. The wedge bootie is all over the runways for the fall and adds a statement to a skirt, dress or shorts (pair with black sheer tights to keep your legs warm!). A similar shoe, also by Studio, is the Black High Vamp Wedge shoe that has the same platform and heel with a peep toe, cutout front ankle and high ankle strap with a silver buckle.
A hallmark of summer, these are chic enough to come out year after year. The Black Patent Ankle Strap Espadrille Wedge by Wicker has a braided rope wedge heel of 5 inches with a short platform. The top is a strappy, glossy patent leather with a silver buckle on the side of the low ankle strap. The front is a peep toe and the back of the ankle is covered. The arch of the shoe creates a sensual silhouette for your foot while the combination of braided wedge and shiny upper creates couture texture.
The heavy, wooden (or faux-wood) wedge heel is a sophisticated, polished take on the braided and raffia wedge heel. These are more appropriate for fall, so pick up a pair of these to carry through into the new season. Lion makes the Wedge Heel Ankle Strap Sandal, which has a very wide ankle strap with a buckle wrapped around it, a peep toe front, and 2 top straps. The heel is, once again, 5 inches and the platform about 2. The bottom is a dark wood finish while the upper can be a rich burgundy, black, or off-white.
