Don’t count out the gladiator sandal just yet! From stylish stars like Kylie Jenner and Zendaya, the shoe is seriously here to stay — and we’ve rounded up great options if YOU want to sport the summer boot.
From seriously strappy heels to flat versions that hit mid-calf, the options of gladiator sandals are endless — and if you have gladiator fever you aren’t alone! From the stylish Jenner sisters to Zendaya and Vanessa Hudgens, the hot Hollywood shoe trend is everywhere we turn — and pulling off the trend is so stylish and chic!
Vanessa Hudgens is proof that you don’t need endless legs, (like Kendall Jenner!), to pull off the trend perfectly. Be sure to play with proportion — we love the way gladiator sandals look with a mini skirt or a pair of short-shorts — be sure to show off some of your legs! You don’t want the boot to stop right at the base of your hemline, because it’ll take away from the trend and it won’t elongate your frame.
If you prefer rocking a longer, more flowing silhouette, why not try a buttoned-up maxi dress or slit dress, like Zendaya? Allowing your leg to peek through in the shoe will add an edgy vibe to any summer outfit.
Why do we love the trend? We can’t get enough of the way gladiators can instantly add a dressed up, edgy vibe to any outfit — it’s a great way to update your basic summer staples. If you are nervous about trying on the style, opt for a shorter gladiator or lace-up sandal.
Love to keep it casual? Then a flat gladiator sandal is the shoe for you. The interesting detailing will easily add a trendy vibe to your outfit while you can still keep it comfortable, casual and cool.
Check out our picks and be sure to SHOP if you want to try the trend.
