The summer is really starting to heat up, but that shouldn’t stop the fun of attending concerts and other outdoor activities with friends! Flip flops often do an excellent job of keeping feet and legs from overheating, but sandals offer a more put together look.

A common trend over the past few years has been gladiator sandals. The trend transports fashion back in time to the days of gladiator fighters and togas. Fashion trends often are recycled and updated to fit modern times and these sandals are a prime example. The sandals seem to elevate style while also being comfortable enough for everyday activities. They come in all different heights and strap designs to fit the uniqueness of the Fashionista/o!

This Fashionista takes on the trend using a pair of black calf length gladiator sandals with gold triangle detailing. She pairs the shoes with other geometric shape detailing in her jagged-edged skort and white tank top with fringe. Keeping the colors of her top and bottom neutral really highlights the sandals and adds a classic black and white touch to the trendy outfit.

In order to accentuate the gold detailing of the gladiator sandals, this Fashionista added a loose gold charm bracelet and a layered gold necklace with both moon and gemstone charms. Her look is perfect for a day of vacation, a festival or even a day shopping with friends. The gladiators make her outfit versatile and she looks RAD!
