ALL IN THE DETAILS: Gladiator Girl

All feet rejoice! Since the weather is warm enough to put those boots away for good, it’s time to put your most stylish foot forward in a pair of gladiator sandals. Not only are they perfect for spring and summer, a pair of gladiator sandals can be just the accessory to take your outfit to the next level with their strappy detail. They also come in a variety of styles like flats, heels, knee-high or ankle-high. This versatility makes gladiator sandals your go-to shoe for any occasion this season!

Take this Fashionista, for example, whose gladiator sandals complement her outfit perfectly. The black and silver colors pair well with her patterned red circle skirt and white crop top. This stylish student adds a light brown cardigan to be prepared for the unpredictable Michigan weather and a black scarf that pulls in the black from her sandals. To match the silver hardware on her gladiator shoes, this Fashionista also adds a silver elephant pendant and crystal and rose studs. These extra details make her outfit cohesive and put together for the ideal end of the semester look.

How To: To rock your own strappy style with gladiator sandals, stock up! For a neutral outfit, you can get away with a bright pair that stands out for a pop of color. A patterned pair will also make a statement when added to a neutral summer dress for a backyard bash or day out with your girls. If you want your ensemble to be the center of attention, wear a pair of neutral gladiator sandals to complement your look instead of overwhelming it.
