Our favorite duchess rarely missteps when it comes to fashion, and the Olympic Games have been no exception.
Though she often wears solid, unadorned heels, this week she traded in her prim pumps for whimsical wedges, and we're loving them. She's already been spotted twice wearing the Stuart Weitzman style!
We weren't surprised that the duchess was able to tone down her attire. She played field hockey in high school, and is no stranger to athletic gear. What was surprising, though, was how stylish she made comfy shoes.
With a denim upper and cork wedge, her Stuart Weitzman shoes are the perfect mix of sporty and sleek. And unlike chunky wedges, the slim heel showed off Kate's long, lean legs!
It made us think: Maybe wedges don't have to be clunky. So we set out to find fun, flirty styles that wouldn't break the bank.
First we thought of Tom's. If you've ever worn Tom's sneakers you know how comfortable the footwear is. This wedge is girlie but mature, in an autumn-appropriate burgundy corduroy.
Want to look a little more feminine? Check out these forest-green wedges from Steve Madden. With a cute fabric rosette on the rounded peeptoe, the wedges are cute without being childish.
If you're going to be doing a lot of walking, we recommend these Sperry cork wedges. The low heel will prevent feet from cramping after a long day, yet the animal print keeps the wedge from looking dowdy.
Need something for an outdoor party? Try these Aldo shoes with an espadrille-style wedge. The fabric looks like lace. So it can actually substitute for a cute sandal!
You don't have to pay big bucks to emulate our favorite Brit's footwear - especially when shoes like these from Nine West only cost $29. The canvas red upper is streamlined and simple enough that you can go big on other accessories.
If you're willing to indulge, we suggest the Lucie wedge from Loeffler Randall. The woven, closed-toe wedge has a cork sole and criss-cross straps. In basic black, it will definitely be at the front of your closet.
