How to Wear Gladiator Sandals

Once a trend, gladiator sandals are now a mainstay in both mine and Megan’s spring and summer wardrobes. That goes double for metallic sandals thanks to their versatility. In fact, you might have caught the pair Megan rocked with her white frayed jeans look the other day. And since sandals weather is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to share a few more fun ways to wear them. Welcome to today’s Moms Do Spring Style focus! Speaking of fun, make sure you head over to That Chic Mom to see what she shared for her spring outfit idea. I’m sure you’ll be inspired to add even more to your spring wardrobe, but I digress…Let’s get back to those gladiator sandals!

Maxi Dress

Just like gladiator sandals, the maxi dress will forever be a part of my warm weather style…And would you know what? They just so happen to look pretty fabulous together! It doesn’t get more chic and pretty than this pairing in my book. And bonus…Flat gladiators and maxi dresses are both so darn comfortable!

jumpsuit and gladiators


It took a while, but I finally jumped full on board the jumpsuit train last year. Like I mentioned above, I’m a comfort focused girl and the easy breeziness of a flowy jumpusit is right up my alley. I daresay that I may add another one to this year’s spring and summer wardrobe being that I only have the one, but don’t worry. That one will be getting plenty of wear too!

Relaxed Pants

Shop the looks: metallic gladiator sandals / maxi dress / harem pants / jumpsuit

Pajama styles may be a thing of the past for now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t work relaxed pieces into your wardrobe and still look perfectly on trend. These casual harem pants that I rocked last spring will be making plenty of appearances this year too, let me tell you! And guess what they are? You guessed it. COMFORTABLE!

So, there you have it. Three easy ways to wear gladiator sandals. You might also notice that I kind of have a thing for prints. Bwah! Bold, vibrant prints paired with gold glads that I can’t get enough of, but I digress…Don’t forget to head over to That Chic Mom to see what she’s crushin’ on this spring!

    I certainly am not a fan of showing my toes in shoes. I am a flats,boots or sneakers kind of gal myself.

    I have a pair of hiking sandals and that’s as ‘gladiator sandal’ as I want to get. Honestly I just don’t like the look of them on me. I’m the same with maxi dresses. They just bury me and I feel like I’m wearing a tent! Give me sneakers and yoga pants anyday!

    I have to admit I’ve stayed away from the gladiator sandal because I wasn’t a fan and have such short legs I figured they would look insane. But I love the way you’ve styled them. You get the peak of the gladiator without having the sandal run up the leg. Such a smart idea.

    All of these pieces are gorgeous! I have not jumped on the jumpsuit wagon as of yet but I just might have to this spring! Comfy clothes are the best, I totally agree. Oh, and I haven’t worn my sandals in years but I sure do love them! Might have to dig them out of the back of the closet 🙂
