When you are looking for the perfect pair of gladiator sandals, be sure to select the type that is right for you. They are very versatile, with a great many variations, and are very statement-making.
The flat or wedge style look great worn with casual ensembles while for an evening look, the heeled version are incredibly flattering on most legs and look fantastic under a fitted cocktail dress. Strappy knee-length beauties get a thumbs-up from everyone for their fresh updates include snake prints, unexpected pops of color and beautiful details mixed with a rebellious attitude.
Here are some tips to style gladiator sandals with an ensemble.
With shorts: Update any old shorts, or denim short shorts with a pair of tall gladiator sandals. A looser, distressed/frayed pair of denim shorts will add a more relaxed, vacation vibe. A pair of tailored shorts either short or mid-thigh length, will give your gladiators a more clean-cut aesthetic.
With a printed dress: Get into the vibrant print vibe by slipping into a colorful, patterned dress to take your gladiator sandals to the next level. You may also add a high heel gladiator sandal to a semi-formal bodycon dress and you have yourself a statement-making outfit for a stylish night out. For this combination, keep your accessories simple, as the print plus the strappy heels add enough drama already.
When you are picking out a dress, stay clear of one with a mix of too many colors. Gladiators are already a statement shoe, so don’t overdo it by wearing a colorblock dress with different accent colors.
LBD: The best choice of all dresses to wear with gladiator sandals is the LBD (little black dress). Depending on the style of the dress, you can transform your outfit from festival ready to boho-chic, to city cool in a minute. In any event, your little black dress will go well with your gladiator sandals, regardless of style.
For a strappy dose of glam, pair black gladiators sandals embellished with metallic trimmings with a black dress.
Little white dress: Not into wearing black in the heat, but still prefer a monotone trend. Then, gladiator sandals united with a little white dress are the summer combination du jour. Look sophisticated with an edgy touch by picking girly favorites such as a crocheted or lace white dress.
Shirt dress: Another popular choice is the shirt dress, with its clean lines and crisp material; this dress type can be styled with many different shoes. So why not throw on a pair of strappy gladiators for some footwear drama.
