How to Wear Gladiator Sandals

Jun 09, 2014

What is it about this trend that reminds us of the Greeks that entices us to wear it in the summer? This trend has been a festival favorite since day one and it is now seeping into street style and the rest of the fashion blogger world! The comfort of wearing sandals paired with the bold statement, these shoes are definitely not for the faint hearted.

Gladiator Sandals definitely sway towards the more casual side, but it can still be extremely versatile in its category. Try wearing it with high-waisted shorts and a crochet tank for a full on festival junkie look a la Vanessa Hudgens. For a more classic look, stick to more muted tones of gladiator sandals and pairing it with a blazer, cut off shorts, and a loose blouse. Try to avoid pairing the trend with flowy white grecian-esque dresses if you don’t want to look like a Greek princess, unless you’re going for the Daenerys Targaryen’s look from The Game of Thrones, then rock it like you can, girl!

If you love the trend so much that you HAVE to find a way to incorporate it into your more dressed up occasions, try it in heel form! If you prefer a bolder, sexier look, pair it with a pencil skirt and a crop top. Remember, when wearing gladiator sandals, treat them like your favorite pair of statement boots that you love to show off. Wear it with shorter hems and if it’s too cold, cuff your jeans! Just make sure your bottoms don’t cover up these poor babies!
