From a young age, my mom has instilled in me the principle that shoes have the ability to either make or break an outfit. With this in mind, I am constantly on the lookout for new up and coming shoes that are bound to make any outfit pop.
Every summer we are greeted with a new trend that Fashionistas/os cannot wait to get their hands on, or should I say feet in this case. From simple bohemian styles seen by Valentino, Chloé and Stella McCartney, to more embellished styles by Balmain and Isabel Marant, the gladiator sandal was all the rage at Paris Fashion Week for spring 2015. The best part about this trend? Gladiator sandals can be as versatile as you want them to be and are sure to give your otherwise ordinary outfit an element of excitement!
Taking inspiration from the Chloé spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection, I decided to complete my outfit with a bohemian-like gladiator sandal. They are the perfect mix between fashion and comfort and instantly give my outfit that extra flare without requiring any effort. Believe me when I tell you that incorporating this runway trend into your everyday wardrobe has never been easier.
Because my sandals are the statement piece, I kept it simple by pairing them with white shorts and a Free People tank top. In order to keep the bohemian style of my outfit consistent, I decided to wear my Chan Luu wrap bracelet to complete the look. Last but not least, I tied my entire outfit together with a white backpack accented by gold zippers. Whether you decide to channel your inner bohemian like Chloé or your inner warrior like Balmain, your new style is sure to make a statement.
