are fun, and when warm weather hits, they become nearly irresistible; wedges
are also one of the hottest trends in women's shoes
again for 2013.
Even women who don't normally wear heels can opt for a bit more height with wedge sandals and shoes
, because wedge-shaped heels offers more stability than their stiletto
Check out these top picks in women's wedge sandals and shoes for 2013.

In addition to being stylish and contemporary, these wedge sandals from Jessica Simpson have wearable heels that measure in at 2.75 inches, and they come in four great colors: black, tan, coconut, and canary.

Priced at just under $45 per pair, these thong wedges come in black or brown, and have a slew of positive reviews at Zappos.com. The heels are 3" high, so most girls and women will find them pretty wearable height-wise, and they'd be great for pairing with shorts or jeans. (Buy Direct)
DOLCE by Mojo Moxy 'Edie' - Wedge Shoes in Trendy Colors
In addition to wedge heels, one of the hottest summer shoe trends

With 5" wedge heels and .75" platform soles, these pretty shoes would look great with skirts, dresses, or shorts. Available in white, cream, and pastel shades of pink, lilac, mint and blue, these wedges are currently priced at just under $40 per pair. (Buy Direct)
Franco Sarto 'Hetty' - Pretty & Versatile Wedge Pumps
I adore these pretty wedge pumps, and they are easy to wear in more ways than one. Given that the heels are only 3 inches -- and wedges -- they're more wearable than some of the others, and the style is classic enough that they won't be out of fashion next month, or even next year.
The bowed vamps and open toes make them perfect for pairing with pants or skirts and dresses, and they look fantastic in both pink and turquoise.
If all of that isn't enough, these Franco Sarto shoes ring up at less than $90 per pair, which is pretty reasonable considering how much wear you can get out of a pair shoes like this. (Buy Direct)

Salvatore Ferragamo 'Darly' - Designer Wedges
These bowed wedge pumps from Ferragamo fuse classic uppers with espadrille soles, making them a wee bit quirky, and insanely adorable. They'd be irresistible with a pair of rolled up boyfriend jeans, but they'd work just as well with a pretty sundress or a short, casual skirt. In fact, one of the things that makes shoes like these so great is that it's fun to play by pairing them with different outfits, and seeing which combinations you like best.

Stuart Weitzman 'Itsawrap' - Sexy Wedge Booties
The best thing about open-toed booties is that they are very multi-seasonal. Of course, you wouldn't want to wear wedge booties like these in a snow storm, but they'll see you through spring, summer, and early fall in style. This particular style is especially stunning, and you know, I'm a big fan of Stuart Weitzman shoes for comfort.
Available in taupe or black suede, these wedge booties have 4.25" heels, and would add a bit of drama to a variety outfits, from skinny jeans and your favorite boyfriend blouse, to a cute little cocktail dress. (Buy Direct)
