Consider Your Height
If you’re long and tall then you can get away with wearing gladiator sandals with almost any outfit, but if you’re on the shorter side they can end up making your legs look disproportionate.
To combat this, avoid sandals with lots of heavy strapping around the ankles and opt for a variety which starts lower down on the foot as this will elongate your legs. Choose a sandal with a slight wedge or something with a t-strap to make your legs look even longer and more toned.
Consider The Occasion
Sometimes flat shoes can seem a bit too casual for a night out – but some strappy metallic gladiators will look great with any clubbing or bar hopping outfit. Team your metallic shoes with a dress in a bright tropical hue and match your accessories and handbag for an extra bit of sparkle.
Match With Your Maxi
Maxi dresses are everywhere and gladiators are the ideal sandals to wear with them. For a boho look, choose gladiators in leather or even an animal print that clashes with your maxi’s fabric.
Cover your arms with leather and wooden bangles for a touch of hippy chic. You can even add to the look with this year’s hottest accessory – a fabulous flower garland for your hair.
Team With Shorts
Gladiators work perfectly with shorts, no matter what height heel you select. If you choose a longer sandal that stretches up your leg you’ll really stand out from the crowd, so keep your outfit in check by keeping your accessories neutral and simple. Long gladiator sandals work well with cut-off denim shorts and loose tops.
This year’s hot colour trend is neon, but if you don’t want to end up looking like you’ve just stepped out of 1985, why not give a nod to the trend with some acid yellow or shocking pink gladiator sandals rather than opting for a brightly coloured dress? They’ll work really well with your little black dress or alternatively teamed with tribal or floral fabrics.
