Summer 2013 Trend To Try: Gladiator Sandals

They’re back, ladies! Our favourite summer shoes circa 2010 are making a comeback with a rather dramatic twist. Ranging from girl-next-door flats (as seen on Mary Kate Olsen) to bad-ass knee-length heels (favoured by Rihanna), gladiator sandals have taken runways by storm. Tall and fierce, the best designs were presented at , Acne, Altuzarra, Marios Schwab, just to name a few.

Alexander Wang’s take on the gladiator sandals

Gladiator Stilettos

Inspired with the Roman Empire epoque, gladiator sandals are this summer’s fiercest footwear style. They are light and airy thanks to the delicate stripes and stiletto heel but it doesn’t prevent them from looking tough. These strappy knee-length beauties we’ve seen on the runway get thumbs-up from everyone: fashionistas, it-girls and celebrities. Fresh updates including sexy snake prints, unexpected pops of colour and beautiful details mixed with a rebellious attitude go a long way this season!

Flat Sandals

If you can’t stand (or can’t walk in) gladiator stilettos then I suggest that you stick to the flat sole sandals instead. To channel your inner tough girl on a casual day, look out for the same style but in bolder, brighter colours for example pink jelly, bright yellow or electric papaya. A safe version will go in silver, black and tasty shades of brown (mmm I have Nutella in my mind). A little bling to your gladiator-inspired sandals are a good idea too – try the ones with large studs or rhinestone details.

How to wear gladiator sandals in general?

It’s important to balance them out because gladiator sandals make a statement on their own. Pair them with delicate clothes for example a ladylike top or a printed dress. Accessorize with a fringe hobo and gold jewellery to bring back the memories of ancient times.
