One of my favorite historical periods in fashion is that of Ancient Greece. This week, I was feeling some major Grecian inspiration from a stylish Fashionista on campus. One of the best features of this time period’s fashion is how effortlessly chic and comfortable it is. Many of our favorite trends today have developed from this culture. The draped dress of the Ancient Greeks has evolved into our modern day maxi dress. Another trendy style that is adapted from the Greeks, the gladiator sandals, have become a staple of the summer months.
This Fashionista is decked out in a stunning blue and white ornate maxi dress from H&M, with a pair of black and gold gladiator sandals and a bag to match. This look makes a statement without being overbearing and is a perfect solution for a busy student on the go. For those who want to be as stunning as this Fashionista, a maxi dress such as this one will be a perfect solution. For those who love the gladiator sandals in her look, you might want to check out this pair of fun snakeskin print shoes to jazz up a look of yours.
How to: For those of you who are constantly looking for something quirky and far from the norm, I suggest a pair of gladiator sandals such as these; they can be the perfect statement piece for your outfit. Pair them with a cute, short romper and you are good to go. A look like this has a good balance of simplicity and shock to keep your outfit looking chic without looking tacky. For those seeking the traditional look, these salmon gladiator sandals could go great with a floral A-line skirt and a salmon button-up shirt to match it. If all else fails, you can always pair your sandals with a maxi dress to find the Greek goddess within you.
