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.

Last summer was an exception. We were spoilt rotten, but back to reality now. The fact still remains  that this is summer, so if you are in need of some summer shopping finds to buy, you may like this post.

Get Your Spring Fashion Essentials

Like I said, I went shopping for some spring fashion essentials the other day. I got some pairs of spring floral trousers, leggings and some blouses as well. The weather has been so warm here, and I needed some new pairs of trousers to stay cool and comfy. Getting your spring fashion essentials should be the first thing you to get ready for the new season in style. Here are some items you could go shopping for to get your wardrobe trendy –

 

  • Maxi Skirts and Sundresses – These are super comfy to wear and they are usually very easy to style. I have a few in my wardrobe at the moment and I wear them so much. They are just want you need to have on when the weather gets dead warm. Go for pieces in spring prints like florals, stripes and polka dots.

 

  • Shorts – I love having a few pair of shorts in my wardrobe for spring and summer. They come in very handy for when it gets really warm.

 

  • Sandals – It is always good to get a few pairs of sandals and flip flops for the spring/summer season. I have been wearing flip-flops all week because it has been really warm here in Cheshire. If there is one thing you shop for this season, it should be some new pairs of sandals. A good pair of sandals came change the whole look of an outfit.

 

  • Cardigans – You should have light cardigans in your wardrobe for when the days or nights get a little chilly, and you need a light coverup. Having a few in bright colours would definitely come in handy.

 

  • Sleeveless Tops and Colourful Accessories – These are definitely spring staples to have if you want to stay stylish. The right accessories can wake up any outfit and spring is all about bright colours, so ensure you go for bright colourful accessories. Sleeveless tops are just what you need to have on when the weather gets too warm and you need to stay decent.

Stick To Light Layers

Spring is a season for light layers. So ditch the heavy coats, cardigans and the rest of your autumn/winter clothing. In other to be trendy and comfy, you need to wear breathable fabrics in bright colours. Depending on where you live, light layers should work just for fine for you this season. A light cardigan may come in handy when the temperature drops and if it doesn’t, it is easy to pop it in a bag or around your was it. I like to mix and match pieces in with different prints and texture to create a stylish look.

 

Add Bright Accessories

Another fashion tip for spring is adding bright accessories. Accessories have the power to make or break any look. They are usually cheaper to invest in, so if you are on a budget but want to look trendy, you can update your accessories collection. The right accessories can easily switch up a basic look, so don’t underestimate the power of accessories. You can try updating your look with a floral scarf, or a bright coloured pair of sandals.
