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.

What shoes to choose for a summery day date to the beach

Summery days with the warm breeze kissing the face is a blessing that we want to have 365 days a year in our lives. Sadly, our demographics don’t allow so. After being catapulted by the grim winters and autumn for a major chunk of the year, summer truly is the time to rejoice and get our bikinis out. The perfect weather makes it the best time to go to the beach, enjoy some chilled margaritas with the girlies and lie as the salt water and cool breeze calm our senses.

The idea of going to a beach in pitch winters is a foolish one. So a person who loves the sea looks forward to the summer and spring season, for a beach holiday to let the hair down. And it’s pretty worth it, too. The beach has this eerie sense of calm about it and soothes the soul of the most mentally wounded people. There’s not one reason why a person shouldn’t be visiting the beach when the time is right in the year.

Besides, this is time, when women can truly flaunt their skin and curves without getting a chill to their bones! The colourful bikinis come out, the skimpy bathing suits are flaunted and beautiful legs make a foray into the world. The beach is such a wonderful place to be!

Beach fashion for the feet

The only part about beaches that haunt women is the amount of sand that sticks to your body. Especially when it gets to all parts of footwear; no matter what you wear on your feet. While people may walk barefoot on the sand, it’s not advisable as shells or little crabs may give your feet the worst time.
So, here are the best types of footwear you could be wearing on your trip to the beach –

 

1. Flip-flops

A no-brainer, really; flip-flops are your best bet. They are made of rubber and no amount of sand or water will affect their longevity. One tap along each other and all the sand come off of them. Besides, the vibrant and haute colours in flip flops will make you choose more than one!

 

2. Gladiator flats

These are the best, if you are going to be wearing a bikini or a short swimsuit. It will not only make walking in the sand comfortable, but will also give your bare legs a dimension. And you can always choose the length of the gladiator flat sandal as per your choice.

 

3. Tie-leg sandals

Again, if you are going to be flaunting those legs on the beach, give your legs an element to flaunt too. The tie-leg flat sandals are available in so many types; plain Jane, tasselled sandals and even the fringed ones; there’s a lot to choose from.

 

4. Crocs

Crocs and beaches go hand-in-hand. If you have nothing in your closet, a pair of crocs will let you survive. These let your feet breathe and are super comfortable. As the Crocs  strikes your feet, they will not stick to your skin and will give you an easy time.

 

5. Slip ons or slide ons

Given the fact, that you are going to remove your footwear a lot of times and then wear it again, you need something that is easy to wear and not takes much time to come off. For this purpose, slip ons and slide on are best. They come in so many styles; you can choose from the mini wedge or the light wedge, there’s the double strap or the single strap or even the cross over strap!

 

What sort of footwear do you have packed in your summer hoiliday suitcase?
