Summer is here. The first thing that comes to mind when I think about summer is the perfect sandal! The new modern woman is elevating her style by tapping into her inner goddess with gladiator sandals! My favorite element in this Fashionista’s outfit is her leopard gladiator sandals. Gladiator sandals automatically make me think of Hercules, Venus and ancient Roman mythology. A sandal that was often worn by gods now is quickly becoming a timeless fashion statement; it is truly the summer’s must-have footwear.

The sandal complements her solid olive midi dress from GoJane. Midi dresses go well with anything; they fit like a bodycon dress does, accentuating your curves. Since the sandal is leopard print, it adds flair to the outfit and complements her accessories. Her accessory of choice is a zipped, black, faux leather satchel. To complete her look, she has on a button-down denim shirt that she tied up in the front.

Gladiator sandals come in all type of styles: strappy, heels and knee-length. Not only do these shoes comes in multiple styles, but also they complement your legs and make them look longer. Another way to wear your favorite pair of gladiator sandals can be to pair them with ripped cut-off shorts, an oversized T-shirt and a fedora hat. It’s the perfect outfit for Sunday Funday in the city with friends!
