There’s no way we can discuss major trends without talking about this one. Gladiator sandals are a must-have this summer. So, you better put them on your list right away. But before you do, let me introduce you to this wonderful trend. The gladiator shoe has been a major trend in the past. Whether they are flats or heels, wearing gladiator sandals means you’re on point in the fashion world. There are so many different versions of this trend, so there’s no way you’re not going to find a pair you love. Every designer has his or her own interpretation and unique designs for this trend. One interpretation is the bohemian, lace-up shoe. This style is soft and sexy. The warrior look is more stiff and goes until the knee or stops at the ankle. Furthermore, some designers choose to decorate the shoes with stones, gold and silver metals or with fringe.

This Fashionista is wearing a casual, dressy look. Her gladiator sandal heels upgrade her entire outfit and make her look fashionable. She’s wearing more of the warrior gladiator shoe by Sam Edelman. The heels are decorated with blue rhinestones, something that makes them pop. Along with the trendy pair of shoes, she’s wearing black jeans and a nude crop top. On top of the crop top, she has a black, tailored jacket that is not completely tailored. The front of the jacket is wavy and loose. But the tailored-style jacket makes her look more elegant than casual and flatters her body. She is wearing a classic diamond Swarovski necklace, which makes her look more elegant. Her hair and makeup are gently done. Overall, her look is super cute and clean.
