If you can only buy one new shoe for the rest of 2015, make sure it's a gladiator sandal.


The lace-up gladiator sandal has anchored the fashion scene for quite some time now—from Mischa Barton to Kylie Jenner, these strappy sandals have quite a style following. Here's how we would pull off the trend and look California chic in 3 ways:
 
Summer shorts
 
 
Play with proportions and show off your legs. Achieve an elongated illusion when you pair the tall sandals at the base of your hemline. We'd pair it with shorts and cropped tops for a strong silhouette for perfect summer vibes.
 
summer dress
 
If you want to add an edgy vibe to your summer dresses, your gladiator sandals are the perfect choice. Pair it with longer hemlines with slits, for a casual weekend style. Don't forget to go with more vibrant colours to stand out stylishly.
 
summer layers

Update your summer staples with a flat gladiator sandal by experimenting with layers. The flowing silhouettes and fringe accessories will definitely keep it casual yet cool, as you cruise through the weekend. This is the perfect date night style to try.
