Just like you need to work on your tan, you need to work on your wedge. Wedge sandals are all over the place, so it's easy to get the impression that finding a stylish pair is a cinch. 'Tis not always the case. Lucky for Hayden Panettiere, she already scored a cool lucite pair to trek.

Instead of walking the sands and asphalts in flip flops — yawn — opt for cool wedges that will not only give you height but also comfort. As far as I'm concerned, everyone can use some extra comfort when in a slinky bikini.
