How To Style Summer Wedges


Wedges are undoubtedly the shoe of the summer season, with their wonderful supportive wedge heel that brings a more casual approach to the stiletto heeled shoe. Many wedges have the open toe look which is the perfect chance to show off a summer pedicure! Here at Ravel we have some fashionable ladies wedge sandals available in various patterns and designs that we think you’ll love.

Not only do we stock the means for you to be footwear ready for summer, we’re also keen to show you our favourite ways to style wedges to give you some inspiration when it comes to teaming your Ravel wedges with a summertime outfit. We’ve got some wonderfully designed wedge sandals for you to work into your summer wardrobe, created from high quality materials such as supple suede and faux leather with the distinctive cork effect wedge. An absolute ladies footwear classic; the wedge is ready for it’s close up this season.

Statement patterned wedges

What better time to make a floral statement than summertime? Here at Ravel we have some excellent patterned wedges from our collaboration with the V&A museum which are statement making and on-trend. There’s a choice of a red petal floral pattern or a 70s inspired print that is ideal for bohemian fashion loving ladies.


Patterned footwear or shoes which demand attention work best when styled with toned down clothes. These shoes need their own space to shine! A good way to work out how best to style a patterned wedge is to pick a colour from the pattern and incorporate that shade into your outfit, whether it’s by opting for a matching bag or top in the same colour. This will make your outfit look a lot more refined, and will also jazz up the look if you’re not keen on going with a totally plain outfit. With our Ravel V&A footwear, select the summery orange shade to work into your look, or the light blue from the 70’s print. Look for a camisole in these shades and pair with a linen pencil skirt to perfectly coordinate your summer outfit, all ready for a weekend BBQ or an evening date night.

Plain wedges for easy styling

Styling a pair of plain wedges means there’s much more freedom when it comes to choosing a complete outfit; your look won’t be competing with the pattern on your feet! Too many prints or patterns can appear overwhelming, and if you’re not about that vibe, one-colour wedges will be ideal for you. They can be your go to pair of summer shoes this season due to their styling versatility, so just one pair of wedges will be all you need to pack before jetting off to warmer climes.

Another shoe that returns for it’s summer appearance is the quintessential summer shoe – the espadrille. Here at Ravel, we love design innovation which is why we can’t get enough of our espadrille wedge sandal hybrid! Taking all of the best design points from each shoe style – rope wedge and suede or leather upper – you’ve got a ready-made summer shoe just waiting to get it’s chance to see the sun! These light shoes are ideal for teaming with maxi skirts or halter neck dresses of any pattern due to their plain finishes. Opt for the summer coral shade for holiday adventures, or stick with an on trend blue shade for a subtle injection of colour.

Neutral wedges that go with everything

A neutral coloured wedge sandal is an essential footwear addition due to the ability to style them with patterns and different coloured clothing. Opting for a tan sandal or a neutral coloured wedge is appropriately on-trend, ensuring that they look modern season after season. We have the gorgeous Ravel Cutler wedge sandal in tan suede that has metal stud detailing for an edgy look, the Ravel Gratz wedge with a woven pattern high heel and the Ravel Westport in a python print with a classic T-bar fastening to get you on board with this look. The various shades of tan and nude work well with just about any coloured dress, skirt or pair of trousers, but we love the contrasting look of tan and black, so team your pair of tan wedge sandals with a black maxi dress or jumpsuit and finish with a patterned tote bag for effortless summer chic.

Pop a pair of Ravel wedges and wedge sandals into your suitcase for your summer holiday this year or simply make them your go-to shoe for the warmer season. Offering a bit more glam than the regular flat sandal, a wedge heel can take your look from drab to fab in seconds. With our range of fashionable wedges there’s plenty of styling options to be discovered!
