If you’re looking for a summer heel but not sure where to start, we say all hail the mighty wedge. Comfy enough to wear all day whatever the weather, wedges give the extra height that a skinny heel can’t, without giving us sore feet for a week.

These Jakoba platform wedges from French Connection do just what you need whilst looking super chic in the process – the raffia platform and wedge heel give extra height, and will be super comfy on our sun-kissed toes.

The suede mule strap is available in beige or mineral red – we love the latter as a little nod to the colour popping palettes we’ve come to really love for summer – and we think they’ll rock for casual daywear and at occasions, too.

We’ll be wearing ours with chic shift dresses and metallic accessories – just slick a splash of clashing bright nail polish to make your feet sizzle.
