When it comes to seasonless footwear, out of all sneakers for women, wedge sneakers are one hybrid every woman should have in her wardrobe. Not only do they make you look taller, but they also elevate any ensemble.

If you're wondering how to wear wedge sneakers, you're in good hands. Believe it or not, this sporty heeled shoe style is more versatile than it seems, with endless outfit combinations for every occasion. You can get inspiration for cute outfits with sneakers or even how to wear sneakers with jeans so you'll always have outfits to style them with. 

Let's get started on a few ways you can style wedge sneakers.

How to Wear Wedge Sneakers for Any Occasion

Love elevated trainers but not sure what to wear them with? The footwear aficionados at TOMS are here to guide the way. Ahead, we’ll get into how to wear wedge sneakers in six different ways.

Go Casual in Jeans

The beauty of denim and sneakers is that both are seasonless—you can rock them year-round, no matter the weather, with nearly endless ensembles. And with sneakerized wedges, you're just adding a few inches of height. Not to mention, the wedge heel makes it comfortable to style with many outfits. 

Whether you prefer wide-leg, high-rise, skinny, flared, boyfriend jeans, relaxed, cropped, or distressed jeans, you've got tons of styling possibilities. In the fall and winter, throw on a button-down or an oversized sweater, and in the warmer months, wear a simple t-shirt or crop top for more casual outfits.

What Wedge Sneakers Go with Jeans?

You really can't go wrong with wedges and jeans. We love the look of platform sneakers for a sleek yet sporty appeal, as well as waterproof sneaker booties when dressing for cold or wet weather.

Show Some Ankle in Cropped Pants

As the name implies, ankle boots guide attention to your ankles. With this in mind, you might consider wearing cropped pants with sneaker booties to show off your lowermost leg.

As long as you have a few inches of skin exposed, nearly any style of trousers will do. Fitted pants look great with loose shirts, whereas relaxed fits pair best with slightly tighter tops.

Supportive suede or leather wedges are a stellar choice for this ensemble. Cushioned wedge booties are an excellent pick as well, especially if you plan to do some walking.

Flatter Your Figure in a Maxi Dress

Flattering women of all shapes and sizes, maxi dresses are among our favorite ladies' wardrobe staples. Perhaps the best part about a long flowy dress, however, is that it's a complete outfit in one. Just slip into some wedges, throw on a jacket if needed, and you're good to go.

What Wedge Sneakers Go with Maxi Dresses?

We adore the look of platform espadrilles sneakers with maxi dresses. For something a little more elegant, you might want to rock a pair of wedge booties.

Look Polished in a Skirt

Can you wear wedge sneakers to the office, a job interview, a networking event, or another professional destination? You bet! Opt for a midi cut, such as a pencil skirt, A-line skirt, or pleated number. Then wear a blouse, mock-neck, bodysuit, or fitted tee on top. Or, you can even dress up wedge sneakers and a skirt for a summer night out.

What Wedge Sneakers Go with Skirts?

As for your shoes, go with simple platform booties, suede closed-toe wedges, or sneakerized lace-up wedge boots for a little more edge.

Go Laid-Back in Leggings

Wedge sneakers and leggings are among the choicest contemporary looks for the ladies. This laid-back combo pairs best with somewhat long, loose-fitting tops. Think slouchy sweaters, drapey blouses, extra-long cardigans, and oversized button-downs. Like mentioned earlier, the heel of these wedge shoes makes them perfect for casual outfits.

Offering rugged practicality and warmth where you need it, lace-up wedge booties are a superb choice in the fall and winter. For something a bit sleeker but still plenty practical, consider platform Chelsea boots.

Lean into Athleisure

From yoga pants and jogger sets to running tights and performance tanks, athleisure apparel appears to be taking a permanent place in women's fashion. We appreciate that you can combine everyday streetwear pieces with athletic clothes, like cable-knit sweaters, denim jackets, and wedge sneakers.

What Wedge Sneakers Go with Athleisure?

When it comes to athleisure, you can't go wrong with weatherized sneaker booties. On the other hand, low-top platform lace-ups lean into the sporty vibe while elevating your up-for-anything outfit.
