Jennifer Aniston Proved That Summer's Most Controversial Heel Trend Is Chic

Much to the world's delight, Jennifer Aniston has been out and about a lot lately, promoting her new Netflix film, Murder Mystery. As you may know, Aniston isn't one to stray from her signature California-chic look, which usually involves the color black or other muted hues. Accordingly, for a press appearance earlier this week, Aniston wore a Loewe maxi dress (trend alert!) in her signature black hue with summer's most controversial heel trend: wedges. 

"Grandma" trends have been on the rise this summer, with celebrities eagerly donning things like tweed, crochet, and the aforementioned wedges (which Sienna Miller and Selena Gomez very recently wore). We Who What Wear editors also weighed in on the trend this season. The majority of wedge heels on the market have typically been espadrilles, but this season, more and more sleek pairs, like Aniston's strappy black leather wedges, have been cropping up. We think this is the key to the success of the trend, so if you're looking for a pair of walkable, on-trend heels this summer, take a cue from Aniston and get yourself a pair of sleek (non-espadrille) wedge heels.
