Since it's reemergence on the fashion scene last summer, the gladiator sandal has become a wardrobe essential for every woman. Because it is available in such an incredible range of styles, colors and materials, the gladiator sandal can be somewhat intimidating.
A sure bet is an easy to wear, understated version with just a few small straps like the Miss Cleo from Reef. Miss Cleo also has a comfy sole and delicate straps that will highlight your summer tan or pedicure. We love this one because it is so simple, yet feminine and can be worn with just about anything.
If you're looking for a more classic version, try the Floater Sandal by Rocket Dog. It has the straps, buckles and streamlined look that keep it simple yet still on trend and at $38 it is a steal! Wear them with shorts, pants or a short, belted summer dress for an easy look.
Add color with BCBGirls Porto in Sunflower. This chic style is ingenious with it's beautiful golden hue that can be worn as a neutral with a denim mini skirt or short shorts or you can play up the warm shade by wearing with a contrasting print in purple or teal. It's also a fun style to wear with a feminine dress to an afternoon wedding or patio party.
For a great beach friendly gladiator style that is durable and easy to clean, look no further than Havaiana's Fit shoe! The rubber soles and jelly straps are comfortable and incredibly stylish- a fabulous update to your tired flip flops.
Now matter what style you choose, there is definitely something for every type of trendsetter- from the classic, cautious woman to the daring fashionista!
