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!

Say ‘I Do’ To Wedding Guest Footwear

Wedding season is underway and whether you’ve just saved the date or you have some weddings coming up this summer, thoughts will no doubt turn to what to wear for each occasion. With the British summer, can you rely on good weather? Can you trust your heels to get you through the whole day and night? So many questions! Here at Ravel we have some amazing wedding guest footwear and occasion footwear options on offer to pique your interest and hopefully solve those footwear concerns. So read ahead and get some inspiration for your summer weddings. Disclaimer: we cannot ensure sunny weather!

Party shoes

Once the outfit is planned, then it’s time to ask yourself: what shoes do I wear for a wedding? The answer is entirely what you will feel comfortable in – we all know how painful feet can kill the glamorous vibe! Feeling dressed up from head to toe as a wedding guest can put us in a good mood and ready for a full day of celebration. Whether you’re naturally a high heel gal, or want to wear something different from your usual footwear choices, our range of women’s heels vary from low heel to stiletto heel depending on how daring you feel on the big day.

We love the slingback design of the Ravel Kinney heeled pumps and the mid height heel, ensuring a comfortable fit so that you can happily dance the night away!. The snake print upper adds an interesting texture to the shoe whilst the pointed toe keeps the look sophisticated and reliably on-trend. Choose from tropical coral or versatile gold for a heeled shoe you can wear time and again. This court shoe style has had a total revamp courtesy of the striking faux snakeskin upper and would finish off a mid length dress to perfection.

Nude shoes are always a fabulous option for weddings due to the elegant appearance and total wearability. Our Ravel shoes offer a range of nude heels suitable for summer weddings, and can be teamed with floral dresses, offering a feminine footwear look. Opt for suede or a patent finish with the Ravel Newton pointed court shoes or the Ravel V&A Helena patent shoes, which feature a beautiful floral lining. A classic court shoe silhouette is a failsafe design that you can wear for multiple special occasions this summer!

Flat wedding guest shoes

If heels aren’t your thing, flat occasion shoes will come to your rescue. With flats you can ensure that you can carry on partying through the night! Go for the easily styled neutral tones or opt for patterned flats to inject some vibrancy to your wedding guest outfit.

A fabulous way to add some style to a flat wedding shoe is to look for embellishments to elevate the shoe design to special occasion status. We love the Ravel Winthrop flat pumps in silver lurex which feature a beautiful brooch style detail on the toe, making them an excellent wedding day alternative! The elegant ankle fastening and overall shiny appeal of these women’s shoes will no doubt perk up an outfit for a summer wedding. Sticking with the impeccably on-trend metallic look we also have the Ravel Medina flat pumps in silver with moc-croc print and delicate cut-out detailing surrounding the toe. The metallic silver shoe is a great all rounder that you can team with virtually any wedding outfit you pull together, and can be worn all summer long!

Matching shoes with an outfit

Neutral coloured dresses or skirt and top combinations can be livened up with a statement heel or heeled sandal. Not only does a bright colour or fancy embellishment on the feet draw attention to your legs, you can also successfully co-ordinate accessories this way, for example by opting for a bag in a similar shade or wearing earrings in a corresponding hue. Outfits which feature busy patterns or an all-over print would suit a more neutral shoe in order to not overwhelm the look completely.

We’ve got so many options of Ravel shoes that you’re bound to find the right shoe for your wedding guest outfit, so browse the selections of expertly designed women’s shoes to find the perfect fit for you this wedding season. Whether you’re after a flat wedding shoe or something more glamorous, discover the sublime wedding guest footwear options on offer here at Ravel and enjoy free UK delivery with your order!

Fabulous Festival Footwear

Festival season is almost upon us and as expected, our thoughts are all about what footwear to take to an outdoor festival. With British festivals, it can go both ways due to the unpredictable weather we are accustomed to; will we be trudging through the mud to see our favourite band or frolicking in the sunshine beside the stage? We’re praying for dry weather this festival season so we can bring out our favourite flat sandals from Ravel! We’ve put together a festival footwear guide to cover all bases, just remember to pack your wellies in case of inclement weather!

These boots are made for walking

A comfortable pair of boots are the perfect footwear option for festivals; not only do they look fashionable, but they can be useful when the weather isn’t too great. Opt for an ankle boot with a low heel for a comfortable feeling all day (or night) long. Our range of flat boots here at Ravel include some classic designs, such as the Ravel Johnson ankle chelsea boots available in black and brown leather. Crafted with Micro-Fresh technology, these boots will stay odour free for longer – just what you need when you’re facing a few days sans shower! The pull up tabs on the back of each shoe makes them easy slide on. With a supple leather upper and stunning tweed detailing on the elasticated side panels, this ankle boot oozes quality in every way. For an updated take on the Chelsea boot, we have the Ravel Roseburg ankle boots in black suede with double leather strap and buckle detail. Effortlessly chic, these boots are a sound alternative. The Chelsea boot is a timeless festival footwear option that can be worn with skinny jeans and a long sleeved shirt for a gig-ready outfit.

For a feminine touch, we love the Ravel Turner ankle boots which has beautiful floral embroidery on tan coloured soft suede. With the wooden block heel and wide top, this style of women’s boots has a definite Western feel to it. Pair these suede ankle boots with a maxi skirt or dress with a denim jacket for a bohemian festival look.

Ravel Johnson Chelsea Boots £65, Ravel Roseburg Ankle Boots £90 & Ravel Turner Ankle Boots £80

A pair of knee high boots can also be a stylish alternative to wellies – providing that it isn’t too muddy of course! Knee high boots look fabulous teamed with a pair of shorts and long socks, as seen on festival queen and supermodel Kate Moss. Again, it’s a good idea to opt for a flat boot for comfort. For a classic over the knee boot option, we suggest the Ravel Floyd in black suede with a simple round toe, or go for a versatile tan leather knee high boot such as the Ravel Markham. Knee high boots are a great investment as they will last long past the festival season and will become your go-to footwear choice for autumn.

Ravel Markham Knee High Boots £125 & Ravel Floyd Over The Knee Boots £99


Believe it or not, sometimes it’s not all mud and rain at British festivals. If you’re heading to the infamous Glastonbury festival in June, take a break from the wellies and add some Ravel Moab flat sandals to your rucksack for those days when the land is dry and the sun is shining. The flat sandals in silver leather are in tune with the popular metallic trend that is everywhere this season with it’s distinctive reflective finish. Plus, the razor tooth effect sole provides extra grip for walks over unsteady terrain back to your tent! For a total fusion of current trends, we recommend the Ravel Rockwall wedge sandals which display two trends in one – metallics and animal print. Opt for classic leopard print or zebra print in pony leather for a simple, slip on sandal that will lend itself to plenty of different outfit options. Show off your summer pedicure with our collection of women’s open-toe flat sandals which are bang on-trend for the warmer season.

Ravel Moab Flat Sandals £55 & Ravel Rockwall Wedge Sandals £55

Whether you’re heading to the countryside for a family friendly festival such as Latitude, or opting for a big stage on a city green like the Parklife Weekender, at Ravel we’ve got all of your festival footwear options covered with our fantastic ranges of women’s boots and flat sandals.
