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!

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 have a few pair of Gladiator sandals and I really love them! The style and comfort make them a win-win-win and sandals that I wear on the regular!

    Your style is so cute, I love it. My favorite pair of gladiators broke last season, now on to finding a new pair, I love your metallic ones.

  4. Di Hickman says

    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!

  5. Heather Garcia says

    Great picks for spring! I love the gladiator look and anything in metallic has my attention. I have a few pairs of metallic sandals and they are my go to shoes. They match everything!

  6. Tereza says

    Love them with your maxi dresses, they look so cute! I’m currently on a look out for a bright red pair (I’m having a thing for red shoes this spring I think haha!) so if you come across any please shoot them my way:) x

  7. Kecia says

    I am ready to wear open toed shoes again, come on sunshine! I don’t own any gladiator sandals, but I can see how versatile they are. I may get a pair this summer.

    those sandals are so cute! Living in Florida, I wear sandals almost year round lol so it is fun seeing different ways to style different varieties.

  10. Melissa says

    I do believe those sandals are great with any style dress or jeans. I haven’t had a pair recently but I think it is time to get a pair for the spring.

  11. Reesa Lewandowski says

    I JUST love that tie dye dress!!!!! Gladiator sandals are so pretty. I need to pick up some new pairs for my daughter and I!

  12. Nikki says

    Those are super cute sandals! I pretty much live in sandals and flip flops during the summer. I really love that dress in the first picture, too. So fun!

  13. Cara (@StylishGeek) says

    YOu look so adorable in your ensembles! Love your gladiator sandals. I obsess over them! I have six pairs already! LOL!

  14. Blythe Alpern says

    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.

  15. OvenStruck says

    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 🙂

  16. Carolyn says

    I just got my first pair of gladiator sandals last summer and love them. I will be sporting them again this year. They look great with so many things.

  17. Emma Kelley says

    I love gladiator sandals! Especially in the spring and summer! They are so stylish when paired with a maxi dress! I love the outfits that you chose to pair them with too. Thank you for your sharing!
