I Thought This Shoe Trend Was Over, But Now I'm Here For It

And just when we thought we'd seen it all, yet another trend we thought was buried 6 feet deep is slowly coming back to life. I never thought I'd see the day when I got behind wedge sandals again, but that day has arrived.

Gen Z would call the wedge sandal we once knew and loved "cheugy" but the 2022 rendition is anything but that. Blending together Y2K motifs like PVC, baby pink colorways, and sometimes even animal print—the wedges that have been gracing my Instagram feed are none like we've ever seen before. Fashion girls have caught on quickly because it didn't take long for me to see all of them wearing the trend at once. Scroll below to shop the chic ways that they've been wearing them. 

Effortless summer outfits are taken to the next level when you finish them off with a pair of wedge sandals. I'll be wearing my matching sets over and over again with a simple switch-up of accessories.
