Next embraces the Year of the Wedge.

Kate Middleton wears them, Pippa wears them, Kate Moss and Samantha Cameron wear them. They have been fashionable in almost every decade since the 1930s. And now I declare that 2012 will be the year of the wedge.

Yes wedge heels will be with us in a big way, and it all starts now. Next have just launched their Spring/Summer catalogue which contains wedges of all varieties,from the raffia and straw sandal, to the modern city wedges that are the perfect work shoe. There are bright, vibrant extreme wedges that could induce vertigo in the faint-hearted, to nude and natural shades that are so beloved of Pippa Middleton.

Wedges are just about the most perfect shoe. They add height for those who hate flat shoes, but can’t cope with heels. They tend to be more comfortable than heels and platforms, and they shout Riviera chic when worn with wide leg trousers and stripy knits that will be around all over again come the spring.

So take your style inspiration from the lovely ladies below, and embrace the year of the wedge – your feet will love you for it!
