i get the whole wedge sneaker thing like i get the whole isabel marant thing. which is to say je l'adore. height without pain? sign me up immediamente. and you don't have to be a rock-it scientist to see how easily this trend translates to skinny jeans. but the real genius is that the wedge works wonders with other pieces: a floaty, long dress, for example. add a slouchy, lightweight sweater, layer a couple of long necklaces, and you'll see why wedges are made for all pursuits, trivial or otherwise.
