sasha-open-cut-wedges_083009We asked: Would you wear Wedge Heels?

You said:  Yes to Wedge Heels, with a landslide 81% to 19% vote.

Style tip? Heels, as always, are big on the trend radar.  The twist this time around is Wedge Heels, which provide a stable platform on which to walk (great news for those of us who want a few extra inches without the pain that comes from high heels).  Because Wedge Heels give you that stable platform, they also visually weigh the foot down.  If you want the stability without all of the visual weight, try an open wedge, like the shoe shown at left.

Next question: Roomy, Pleated Pants are a big trend for Fall.  But what do you think?  Tell us, would you wear Pleated Pants?  Cast your vote on the sidebar!

    I keep missing the polls! That’s what I get for taking weekends off … I live in fear of the pleated pant. NOT a flattering style for my bod.

    Yay- I just bought 2 pairs of wedge heels!
    But pleated pants? If you can find anything without a mom-jeans vibe!

    The pleated pants I’ve been seeing have been more avant-garde - not only are they roomier at the waist, they’re also more loose fitting elsewhere. It’s an interesting look, but certainly not for everyone.

    Butterbee - wedge shoes are great for anchoring a look. As such, they’re wonderful with pants and other solid feeling bottoms. I’d recommend against pairing them with delicate feminine dresses, unless you’re going for a deliberate contrast.
