There’s something about wearing towering heels that can make a woman feel powerful and, quite frankly, more desirable. It is a source of confidence and style for many of us (especially those under the 5-foot-5-inch mark). Fortunately, shoes are covering every end of the spectrum this season, which means a variety of styles are fair game, but the one that is a must for the stylish mom is the wedge.
Don’t think that being a mom-on-the-run excludes you from wearing these high-stacking shoes. Even chasing after little ones, the wedge heel is a wonderful way to keep your style (and comfort) in tact once kids enter your life. You don’t have to relinquish yourself to flip-flops or Pumas just to be comfortable.
Get double the wear from Sigerson Morrison’s gold-and-black calfskin wedge sandal (pictured above) by wearing them day and night. Pair them with jeans or an above-the-knee casual dress to punch up any daytime ensemble. For a night out, these same versatile wedges look smashing with a little black dress and gold statement jewelry to match.
Two cost-conscious but still-chic options are the Caribe espadrilles in yellow or metallic from J.Crew and the Myth wedges in black from Nine West (illustrated at left). Both have a price tag of less than $100 and are great additions to any shoe wardrobe. These trendy stacked heels can be worn with a wide array of ensembles, cushioning and supporting the entire foot while you’re toting toddlers to and from playdates.
