How To Wear The Wedge Sneaker Trend


Wedge sneakers have a tendency to raise many eyebrows. People usually love them, hate them, or they just don't know how to wear them. Today, I am going to talk to you about ways that you can wear this controversial trend and the perks that come with it. If you are looking to add a couple of inches to your stature, but you don't want to wear traditional heels, wedge sneakers may be for you! These shoes give you the height of a high heel with the comfort of a sneaker.

Wedge sneakers come in a wide variety of colors, with some having embellishments such as studs or diamonds.  You can find wedge sneakers on the market for as high as $600 or as low as $39.99 at places such as Tj Max and Marshalls. If you are new to the trend and want to try it out, I suggest purchasing a pair with a lower price tag. That way if you end up not liking them or they go out of style, you didn't break the bank.

So how do you wear this trend you ask? I have seen wedge sneakers paired with skinny jeans of all colors, leggings, shorts, dresses and skirts. The most popular way seems to be pairing them with skinny jeans or leather leggings.

A slim pant leg works well with this sneaker since they can often be a bit bulky. Try pairing your skinny jeans with t-shirts, sweaters, and jackets.

Wedge sneakers add a sporty edge to outfits. They are definitely out of the box, but they are a fun and stylish trend worth trying. For more ideas on how to wear wedge sneakers check out our Top Button's Pinterest board here.
