Ought Not To, Ought To: Gladiator Sandals
tall gladiator sandals
Summer! Summer shoes!
I've covered one type of summer shoe so far - slip-on sneakers. And now, it's about time I feature the quintessential summer shoe - the sandal! Not just any sandals though. Here, I bring you gladiator sandals, the coolest type of sandal that exists. And that ever will exist. And I have no evidence to support these statements.
Sandals can be paired with anything, but I find them especially cute when paired with dresses and skirts. Picture a gold gladiator sandal that ties up till the knee, paired with a cream, chiffon midi dress with a side slit that gives the sandal just the right amount of exposure. Okay, you got me - I didn't come up with this image all by myself. I might have had some assistance from the top right photo in the collage above. Fine, not just some assistance. I copied the image. And put it into words. Guilty. But I had to. It's too perfect.
Both tall and short gladiator sandals have their own advantages and disadvantages. A taller sandal is more striking, bold, and eye-catching. However, with a shorter gladiator sandal, you have more outfit options. You can't really wear tall gladiator sandals with jeans, but they'll definitely look awesome with a skirt or shorts. On the other hand, short gladiator sandals can be paired with pretty much anything.
Personally, I'd go all out and opt for a tall gladiator sandal, but if that seems too excessive for you, shorter gladiator sandals are the way to go. Just as long as you select one of the two. Short or tall gladiator sandals. Either or. Or both. Both works too.
