How to style gladiator sandals

Like them or not, gladiator sandals are here to stay, which is great for me because I love them. They are easy to style and always look good in the summer. I love them and I have quite a few in my wardrobe. I can clearly see why gladiator sandals have stayed longer on trend than other others, and it is because they are stylish and very comfortable. Comfort and style go hand in hand, so when a design ticks both boxes, it is usually a hit in the fashion world. The last thing most of us need is to be stuck wearing uncomfortable shoes or sandals. Walking in those would be hellish!

When it comes to my top 5 summer footwear, gladiator sandals are high on the list and I am not surprised at all. What is there not to love?

Here are some tips on how to style gladiator sandals easy this season –

 

Style with minis to create an illusion of longer legs

Styling gladiator sandals with minis creates an illusion of longer legs, and that is the look you want. I love styling mine with mini skirts and dresses, especially when the sandals are dead pretty. Styling your gladiator sandals with longer hemlines would cut your height into half!

 

Go for colourful pairs

Styling your black outfit with colourful gladiator sandals is an easy way to add some colour to your look this summer.  I love having a few colourful pairs in my wardrobe for days when I need to brighten up an outfit. It is an easy way to add some summer to your look.

 

Opt for a heeled pair for the office

When it comes to styling gladiator sandals for the office (if your office is outside your home), opt for a heeled pair for a more structured look. Anything else would look to casual/laid back, but if that is the general workwear look in your office, then you can get away with any styles.

Try before you buy

Like with most footwear, it is safe to try before you buy your gladiator sandals. It is safer to try on to be sure the style fits your feet right. Ensure you walk around with them on to have a good feel of them before deciding. If your toes are slipping out, go for a different pair.

 

Prep your feet

Prepping your feet is really important. Make sure your feet is groomed and ready before you were your sandals. Go for styles that create an illusion of a smaller feet the a larger one.

Why your clothes don’t fit right

Many of us wear clothes that don’t fit right. Walking around in ill-fitting clothes does nothing for our body shape and it could put a dampen on our mood if most of our clothes don’t look good on us. I have discovered that a lot of people have no clue what to look out for when picking clothes. They just look at the design and colours, pick a size they think would fit them and run with it. That is how to pick clothes that don’t fit you. If you want to know how to select clothes that fit right then keep reading.

Don’t squeeze in!

The first step in buying clothes that fit is to get them in the right size. Don’t be tempted to get a size smaller and squeeze in. It won’t look good on you. Remember that jacket/coat sleeves should hit the wrist bone. The sleeves should be slim to show off the shape of the arms but loose enough to allow you wear a top underneath.

 

Can you bend?

When buying jackets, coats and tops, make sure you can bend your arms easily. Ensure you can bend your knees too when trying on jeans, skirts and dresses.

 

Check the trousers!

Check that the trouser you have an eye on doesn’t have excess material in the zipper and crotch area. This is very important as some of them tend to have more than the fabric required here.

Can you tuck in that shirt?

Ensure the shirt you have on can be tucked in neatly. Some shirts are not long enough to tuck in because the designers scrimp on fabric at the bottom of the shirt. Don’t go for shirts like that unless you enjoy tucking in your shirt every 30 minutes.

 

Go for comfortable clothing.

Avoid clothing that isn’t comfortable to wear. Any garments that feels uncomfortable or painful to wear isn’t worth the hassle. Style and comfort go hand in hand. You can’t be stylish if you are not comfortable.

 

Are the buttons in the right places?

Before you buy a new piece, check where the buttons are. This is really important as where the buttons are can make or break the entire look. I hate it when buttons have gaps in between them that reveal the cleavage. That can be so embarrassing.

When opened, the top buttons should sit just above the bust.

Summer Fashion Finds I Am Loving

Fashion is one of my favourite things. It was one of the main things I spent money on before having kids. I don’t spend as much money and time on fashion and style like I used to but it is still a major part of my life. I enjoy writing about stylish pieces and accessories I have found and I love playing dress up! Life is too short not to look fly!

Summer is here and the weather has been amazing recently in Cheshire. The sunshine and heat means it is officially summer fashion season, and I am ready for it! Best to make the most of the summery weather especially if you live in the UK. Before you know it, the sunshine would disappear and autumn would be here.

Here are some of the new fashion finds I am loving at the moment –

The latest addition to our leggings collection is this Oatmeal Beige Classic Leggings. I love the neutral colour a lot. It is very different from the other colours I have in my leggings collection. It suit many pieces in our wardrobe wardrobes. We love it!
