Springtime is the perfect opportunity to show off those manicured toes of yours. However, I believe the simple flip flop should be left in summer 2015. With the weather heating up, you may be wondering how to avoid the typical flip flop and short-shorts look. One word: gladiator sandals. Throw on a flowy romper, so you can beat the heat with style, and then pair it with gladiator sandals.  Your friends will be questioning if you just got back from a music festival.

This Fashionista chose to show off her mermaid tattoo and aqua color toes by wearing suede gladiator sandals. With festival season right around the corner, this Aztec print romper with the gladiators screams Coachella. The key to the perfect festival look would be to search for a stylish, no-sleeve romper. Spring is the chance to show some leg and, rather than wearing tight shorts, a romper is comfy and cute at the same time.

The main piece of this Fashionista’s look would be the suede gladiator sandals. Gladiator sandals are the next up and coming shoe, so make sure you aren’t the last of your friends to grab these laced up beauties. You can chose to dress up this ensemble with a gold KORS Michael Kors watch, or you could chose to stack beaded bracelets for a more down-to-earth feel.

How To: Check out Urban Outfitters or your local boho shop, and grab a flowy romper to pair with tall gladiator sandals. Dress this look up with gold jewelry or dress it down with layers of beaded bracelets to give your springtime look fresh vibes.
