Looking for a comfortable yet stylish shoe for summer 2021? Look no further – these 5 wedges are perfect for the warm weather ahead & are all inspired by Reese Witherspoon’s fabulous style.
Summertime is all about fun dresses, swimsuits, floppy hats, and, of course, shoes! Wedges are definitely a timeless staple to have in your summer wardrobe. They’re a “heel”, but without the common discomfort from a stiletto or strappy sandal. Celebrities are often spotted strutting in wedges during the summertime, especially A-list actress Reese Witherspoon. The incredible actress, 45, is known for her signature girly style that usually consists of sun dresses, skirts, and wedges. Pictured below, Reese was spotted out on a sunny day wearing a denim jacket over a basic t-shirt, a floral skirt, and a pair of navy blue wedges. Totally cute!
