ASOS ‘Piccolo’ yellow perspex wedges, £40

One of my biggest fashion obsessions of the past few months has been with the colour yellow. It’s a little bit unexpected for me, because just a few years ago, I probably wouldn’t have even considered wearing yellow, but it’s fast become a favourite of mine, and yellow shoes just keep on finding their way into my collection. The right shade can be surprisingly versatile, and I think it looks particularly good against blue denim, so causal days more often than not find me reaching for a pair of mustard shoes – or boots, as the case may be.

The shade of yellow used on ASOS’s ‘Piccolo’ wedges is a little brighter than I’d like: I tend to favour a mustard yellow over an acid/neon shade (which I’m not keen on at all), but I think this could just about work with the right outfit. Now that I’m starting to come around to the idea of perspex on shoes, I’ve found that a clear wedge heel like this is one of my favourite uses of perspex: the effect is modern, rather than tacky, and it creates a really interesting “walking on air” illusion, too.

Would I actually BUY these? Well, probably not, but they are pretty affordable should you decide you want to dip your toe – or your heel, rather – into those perspex waters!

Buy them


  • I actually don’t think this is a full wedge… At first I thought so, also because of the product description on Asos, but when you study the pictures closely, the wedge seems to be “hollow” in the middle. Is anyone else picking up on that as well?

    • I think you’re right – it does look like there’s some kind of an indent… I can’t work out if it’s an actual “hole”, though, or just a sunken section. The trouble with perspex!

  • I see what you mean about it being a “sensible” use of perspex (if there is such a thing) but I still wouldn’t buy them. I think Daisy is right, it looks like the heel is really hollow.
