The styles have been getting better and better as the weather has improved, and today we're loving her natural jute wedges. They've just dropped at Matches Fashion, with a price tag of £220.

The neutral tones of this shoe will be the ideal accessory to all your summer essentials, and while it is easy to wear, you'll get maximum impact from its lofty heel section and strikingly basic toe and ankle strap. We particularly love the slight rose-tinted effect on the gold leather, which adds a bit of a blush to the otherwise bleached out and simple colour scheme. 

Overall, we think this style is a great way to lift your wardrobe into orbit this summer - both literally and metaphorically as that wedge will add and extra 4.7 inches - quite a steep climb for any shoe - with the benefit of a comfortable wedge that's deceptively easy to wear. Definitely a must-buy for those looking for an understated, sophisticated investment this summer.
