STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Stand Out in Gladiators

This summer, step out into the best shoes (a.k.a. tall gladiator sandals)! When wearing these types of shoes, make sure your outfit is as simple as possible because your shoes are the statement of the outfit! Gladiators come in different lengths, styles and colors. You can even make your own tall sandals. Pinterest has hundreds of different boards explaining the easy process. (What would we do without Pinterest?) With these shoes, it can make your entire out fit look put together.

I fell in love with this Fashionista’s tall, black gladiator sandals! They are very tall, which goes along with the Fashionista’s height. The sandals accompanied her outfit perfectly. She had on a black long side slit T-shirt, with black shorts, a statement necklace and a simple black rimmed hat. If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you know how much I love the all-black look on both women and men! (That was the initial reason I stopped to look at her outfit). However, with a second glance, I realized how many different trends were executed in this one outfit!

Although I do believe one’s outfit should be as simple as possible when wearing gladiators, her accessories were paired together perfectly. Her statement necklace, although big, is monochromatic and matches the silver buckles on her shoes. The Fashionista’s hat is perfect for summer and goes along with the summer hippie style she pulls off so well. Tall gladiators are the shoes of the summer! Whether you make them yourself or buy them at the store, they are a must-have.

What is your STYLE ADIVE OF THE WEEK? “When picking out an outfit, not many people think about what shoes they will wear first. Shoes are usually a last minute add on that is given little to no thought. However, shoes can make or break your outfit, which is why people need to realize their importance in a wardrobe.”
