The Wedge

The wedge is definitely the “it” shoe for summer. And with the height and coolness of a pump, yet with added comfort and stability, what’s not to love? Plus, there are virtually limitless styles to choose from. You can go sleek and chic with neutral shades and a wooden wedge, or fun and flirty with bold patterns and cork or rope bottoms. Here are a few great ways to wear a summer wedge:

  • With jeans and a tee. Want to add some sexy flair to your most casual outfits? Pair colorful wedges with boyfriend jeans, skinnies or shorts, your favorite t-shirt and some cool accessories. 
  • At the office. Pair strappy, neutral-toned wedges with your favorite slacks or office attire. 
  • On the town. Nothing’s cuter than a sundress paired with wedges; or, for more a more sophisticated evening look, wear sleek wedges with your favorite little black dress. 


Pumps are a footwear staple, the entire year ’round. However, during the warmer months, finding pumps to suit your summery outfits (not to mention the sweltering heat) can be a challenge. But don’t give up on wearing heels in the summer just yet. Styles like the following are great for summer, and can take your wardrobe to the next level.

  • Cutout pumps. Cutout pumps are must-haves this season. Depending on your tastes, you can choose simple cutouts, more intricate designs or funky, edgy styles; either way, cutout heels are perfect for a summer night out, and can even work well with office attire and casual outfits. 
  • Strappy pumps. Like sandals, but chicer, strappy pumps are a go-to for great summer style. Go sexy with thin straps, retro with a chunky heel and t-strap or funky with buckles and other embellishments: the sky’s the limit. 
  • Statement pumps. Want to punch up a neutral outfit? Metallic golds and silvers, avant garde designs, bright colors and eye-catching patterns are perfect for adding a little flair to your wardrobe. Metallic statement pumps from Susan Itzkowitz Designs, for example, are just the thing to take an outfit from day to night, in as little time it takes to slide them on. Susan Itzkowitz Shoes are designed to add instant style to any wardrobe, simply and effortlessly. 


It wouldn’t be summer without a great pair (or a few great pairs) of sandals. Perfect for a day at the beach or an evening out on the town, the right sandals can add flirty, casual cool to your warm-weather wardrobe. To stay on top of your summer sandal game, be sure to include the following styles in your collection:

  • Gladiators. Stylish and undeniably sexy, strappy gladiator sandals are the perfect way to accentuate those tanned summer legs. Pair with cutoff denim or a little black dress, and let these chic summer staples elevate your entire look. 
  • Platform sandals. Go for a retro 70’s look with sky-high platform sandals. Great for summer festivals or an afternoon of shopping, platforms are the epitome of laid-back summer cool. 
  • High-heeled sandals. More casual than a pump but more sophisticated than a flip-flop, high-heeled sandals pair well with your entire summer wardrobe: from jeans, shorts and tees to miniskirts, sundresses and date attire, a cute heeled sandal will always leave you looking and feeling your most stylish. 

And there you have it: everything you need to know about this season’s hottest footwear. With the styling tips provided here, you can choose the perfect summer shoes, and feel your most gorgeous, confident best!
