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!

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
