If you've checked out the runways for 2014 Spring/Summer, you will find that gladiator sandals continue to be a great go-to for Spring and Summer footwear. Gladiator sandals make a statement alone, and they can easily dress up any wardrobe. The strappy style of gladiators is guaranteed to add edge to anything you decide to wear during the current and upcoming season, so it's important not to overdo your fashion choices. Here a few ways to maintain effortless style while wearing these strappy faves.
Skirts are a great way to show off not just the gladiator sandals, but a great set of legs as well. A line skirts create a great balance for gladiators, whether they are heeled or flat. Steer clear of wearing super tight mini skirts with gladiators, as it can come across looking cheap or trashy. Maxi skirts also go well with gladiators to create the perfect outfit flow.
Cut-Off Summer Fun
Cut off shorts are extremely popular during Spring and Summer, so it's no surprise that they are a knock out, effortless look when paired with flat gladiator sandals. Take advantage of the warm weather in cut off denim shorts (within reasonable length) paired with a nice blouse. Make sure the blouse is not too busy of a print, in order to avoid your shirt competing with the busy structure of your shoes.
Dresses are perfect to wear with gladiators, because it softens the edginess the shoes automatically provide for any outfit. If you are wearing a mini dress, go for a flowy or loose fitting style, so as not to give off a night clubbing look. Floral prints are a great contrast for strappy gladiator sandals, whether heeled or flat.
