How to Wear Wedge Sneakers

Sneaker Wedges- Olympiaa by Steve Madden
I wasn't really sold on the idea of sneaker wedges. I first spotted the style on celebs and in some fashion magazines and I just thought they were tacky.  Well, now, I love them. I think the biggest problem is that they are a bit intimidating!  I kept asking myself "Am I going to look dumb?"  "Am I too old for these?" "What looks good with that?" and I kept coming up short.  Finally, I forced myself to buy them and now I'm sooo happy I did.  Did I mention that they are SUPER comfortable???

Wedge Sneaker- All the celebs are
wearing these!!

Wedge sneakers can be styled in sooo many different ways.  Here, I share 3 ideas to get you started. A special thanks to my beautiful niece, Victoria, who modeled for me.  You can follow her on twitter where she shares her hilarious and sarcastic thoughts.

Feeling funky and fresh?  Pair up these wedges with some black tights and and fun tank top!  If you want the look to be a little more "put together" try layering it with a denim jacket or vest.

You can also fancy up the look by replacing the tank top with a mesh top and leather jacket!

Another nice way to show off your cool kicks is by pairing them up with shorts!  To add some spice to another wise bland look, pair up your casual sweater with a brightly hued bottom!  Its a classic, casual look but your fun wedges and shorts will give you some edge!

Not really feeling the shorts and sweater look?  No fears!  If you want to ditch the sweater... think about replacing it with a graphic tee.  If you want to replace the shorts -skinny jeans will do the trick!

Being the girly girl that I am, I had to pair it up with a skirt!  For a day look: try a light cardigan over a fitted tank top and a floral print skirt.  The juxtaposition of the boyish sneakers and skirt balances out.

Okay, is it just me or the all black look to the left is amazing?  I think its chic and flirty!  Ideally, I would probably wear that outfit with studded heels but imagine it with an all black sneaker wedge!  It would truly be a fashionably, unique way to pull off a rather sophisticated outfit.
