I consider my clothing style to be very feminine, and am rarely found wearing anything other than dresses. But for this reason alone, I like to balance my look so that I never appear too cutesy. This is why the adrogenous look of gladiator sandals is so captivating when paired with a floral dress or lacy skirt. I've included these three options, and whether in a heel or flat, the gladiator sandal trend is one that keeps returning year after year. Be weary of the many heinous options that exist however, since some extend the entire length of one's tibia, which is just not okay.
