2. Gold Embellished Wedges

Gold is in every collection this summer season but our favorite way to incorporate this illuminating color into your look is by wearing it on your wedges. Designers like Kate Spade and Jimmy Choo have creatively integrated metallic gold into their wedge designs by subtly adding gold fabric and hardware. Since gold remains hidden within the details of the wedge designs, pops of gold seem to shimmer and light up as you gracefully walk. Given that gold is very neutral in tone, gold embellished wedges become versatile because they can be worn with an array of outfits, from capris to bathing suits to peplum dresses. If you’re a glamour girl that wants a dainty sparkle in your step then gold embellished wedges are the perfect shoe for you this summer.
