Gladiator Sandals

By Rose Kwamboka | February 8th 2015

The gladiator sandal is back with a bang, and is fit for a casual and dressy look.

Its designs vary from caged sandals to mid-calf, knee-high and over the knee.

However, because they have man-like elements, they may make your feet look wide and your legs short.

If you have full and/or short legs, opt for ankle styles in a nude colour and minimal details.

Or, select styles with a T-strap and/or two-to-three-inch heel to counter the shortening effect.

If you have long and slim legs, any gladiator sandal will do.

But if you have slim and short legs, select the simplest gladiator sandal.

To look gorgeous, wear them with denim or khaki shorts.

Look feminine and casual with flat gladiators paired with a full-circle skirt, or trendy with high-heeled gladiator sandals paired with a pencil skirt.

You can make the gladiators more sophisticated by wearing the with your favourite pair of pants.

What's more, you can take the look from the office to the evening party by rolling up the pants a little to show off your shoes.
