How to Wear Gladiator Sandals

by Anna P. | May 2nd, 2012 | Fashion, Shoes

Gladiator sandals are the quintessential choice for summertime. You’ll be hard pressed to find a shoe better suited for warm weather. And since there are a ton of colors, heights, and styles to choose from, you’ll have a field day shopping for and wearing these shoes. Here are three styles you should try, and three ways to wear them!

1- Beachy Keen

Comfort is vital when you are walking on a sandy beach, so make sure that the shoes you wear are beyond comfy. Flat gladiator sandals are the perfect option! Wear a pair of flat shoes that are a neutral color like brown or a metallic shade like gold. Both colors look great on tan skin. Pair these sandals with shorts, capris, rompers, mini dresses, denim cutoffs, and more.

These shoes will add a little oomph and a lot of style to anything, so stock up on a few pairs in different colors and styles!
