ALL IN THE DETAILS: Strappy Ending

June 1st, 2015 at 2:05am

The gladiator, a sandal that’s been around since, well practically forever. They hung on for another summer season to continue to be one of the most popular shoes on the market. Just when you thought the trend had died and that there would be no more of the gladiator sandal, they stomped down the runways in many spring/summer 2015 collections to prove they were not going anywhere just yet. They make a statement, adding just a touch of Greek goddess to any look. Elevating a basic summer outfit to something more chic and ready for any situation a summer can throw at a Fashionista. I have always been a fan of the gladiator sandals that are taller, falling a little below the knee. They give off this aura of being rough and tough, yet they are still totally feminine with their lace-up details.

This Fashionista completely let her gladiator sandals be the center of the show with this look. Choosing to dress in neutral colors that allow the bright white and gold detailing to pop and of course, accentuating a glowing tan fit for a goddess. Keeping it simple makes this outfit feel effortless, like an off-duty model trouncing the streets of Paris. Though we are only in Columbus, this Fashionista knows just how to rock the trend. Pairing it with a nude button-up and black shorts keeps the outfit balanced with the pop of bright white in the sandal. She also kept her jewelry minimal, choosing a simple silver chain necklace and stud earrings. Working in a neutral color pallet with these glam gladiators, this Fashionista is ready to take on whatever summer has to throw at her.

These sandals are perfect for the summer since they can be worn casually in the daytime or jazzed up for the evening. Since plans are usually spur of the moment during the summer these are a great go-to for any wardrobe to add some sass to your ensemble. You can keep your outfit minimal and allow the sandal to be the star of the show, or go for the festival bohemian chic look. A gladiator sandal is the perfect shoe that can be worn in a variety of ways to add some pizazz to an outfit.

How to: Always wanted to try the bold knee-high gladiator trend but too scared to commit? Try a ankle height version to get the Grecian look while keeping it simple. Pair with a simple tank top and flowy shorts for a perfect easy, breezy summer look ready to live “strappily” ever after.
