INSPIRATION : GLADIATOR SANDALS

gladiator sandals inspiration trend spring summer 2015

I can’t imagine the coming spring/summer without these: Gladiator sandals. Apart from the fringes and the usual white lace, they’re next season’s big thing and I love everything about them. They’ll make you feel like a stylish, greek goddess. From plain embellished leather to wrap-around suede, from flats to high heels, there’s a infinite multitude available to cater all tastes.

Chloé, Stella McCartney and Valentino unrolled them during Paris Fashion Week and it was only a matter of an eye-twinkle until they reached Zara, Asos and the remaining high-street stores. There’s simply no way to avoid these eye-catching shoes, which add a sprinkle of downtown-boho to every summer look, so I included a few of my favorites at the bottom of this post. Personally I would either wear them with a lose shirt dress, draped with a nice belt or with a plain shirt and a flowy, side-slit maxi skirt.  Will you rock this trend once the weather allows it?

      Hi Constance,
      You’re so right, I also think that they go with almost everything summer-related :)

    I have to admit I am not a fan – they are nice on fashion shows, not so much in real life. But the inspirations you posted look amazing – so maybe we should give a try :)

      Yeah,it’s all a matter of taste, many people don’t like them and others are totally in love with these shoes :)
      I’m very curious to find out if people in Luxembourg will go for this trend or not. I remember my last vacation in Ibiza around 5 year ago as there were many girls wearing gladiator sandals and it looked simply awesome with tanned skin and a cute skirt :)

    Oh dear, I LOVE these two. Unfortunately they don’t suit me well because of my too big calves
