If you bored with your everyday flip flops or find them too casual, then gladiator sandals are a great way to spice up your summer look. Gladiator sandals are a lot more versatile than you might think. Reappearing on the catwalks a few
years ago, they’ve now found a firm place back on the style racks year after year. Check out the list below for a few tips on how to wear your gladiator sandals.
High-waisted shorts: This vintage style has been a huge trend this summer, and they go great with a pair of gladiators. Try a gold pair of sandals offset with a pair of muted color shorts, such as navy, to help achieve a look that will get you noticed for all the right reasons.
Florals: Hippy chic is always in style in the summer months, especially floral prints which have been seen on fashionistas worldwide. For a festival look that’s light and breezy, team your gladiator sandals with a long floral skirt in light colors such as white, pink or yellow. Try going for sandals that are black or white to compliment the patterns of the skirt. Going for sandals in a a more neutral color as opposed to a metallic one, will draw the attention to your outfit and away from your feet.
Capri Pants: If it’s Riviera chic you’re going for then team up your gladiators with these cute cropped pants. Add a slim fitting, but loose shirt, some simple gold jewelry and a pair of oversized shades for a look that channels Sophia Loren, Jane Birkin or Bridgette Bardot.
Skinny Jeans: Celebrities and fashion’s elite have been spotted wearing their gladiator sandals with skinny jeans. If gold or silver sandals are your go-to, avoid black jeans, which may make your style look a little overstated. Instead, try a pair of stonewashed, light blue or indigo jeans to ensure your shoes don’t contrast too sharply. Combine this with a white blouse for a minimal, yet professional look.
