Another way to go short on the hems is by wearing short shorts with wedge sneakers. More skin balances more the shoe.
5. Fitted Printed Pants
Celebrities haven´t tried this yet but wedge sneakers do look great with printed fitted tights or pants. The key here is matching the color of your sneakers to at least one color from your print. Avoid clashing prints though, it would be too much. So make sure to opt for one solid color for your top.
