Why Gladiators Are The It Footwear This Summer

Written by Delia AlmeidaMay 17, 2017
What’s summer without chic, strappy soles, right? Precisely why the trend of gladiators has been topping the fashion charts this season. It’s ironic how the future of fashion can fundamentally be found in the past. Gladiator footwear, over the years, has been version of the original shoe designs that the Roman gladiators of yore wore. And the fact that you can dress them up or down is what makes them such a wardrobe staple for summer.

Monotone magic

Pair your ripped jeans with knee high tan gladiator heels for an edgy look. Tuck in your white shirt and throw on a black blazer for a semi-formal vibe. If this isn’t going to make heads turn, we don’t know what will.

Beach holiday vibes

Wear an off-shoulder ruffle sundress with a pair of bright coloured pompom gladiators. These types of gladiators lend a vibrant vibe to your attire. Play it up with a cane beach bag that’ll complete your summer outfit.
