By Savoir_style @Savoir_Style
I can’t wait for spring to turn the corner and show up. Life would be so much better with some color around. Aren't you waiting to get all those lace dresses and strappy sandals out?
Talking of Strappy Sandals, Guess which trend is making a comeback? Yes, It is the Gladiators. Gladiator sandals, in many different styles, made a statement across the SS 2013 runways. While Proenza Schouler, Altuzarra and Alexander Wang showcased the extreme version of these sandals, Designers like Nicholas Kirkwood went for a more feminine version.

A lot of us shy away from these sandals because they are a statement in itself and it is often easier to go wrong with them than right. However, they are also very versatile and you have a lot of choice when it comes to picking up the most flattering style for yourself.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- If you have long, slender legs - Don’t think twice before picking up those Knee high gladiators/sandal boots.
- Flat Gladiator sandals with straps ending just above the ankle or below it work for most women.
- If you want to draw attention away from the calves, opt for high heeled gladiator sandals. Again remember, Ankle Strap Gladiator sandals can work for almost anyone.
- Pick up a color and material that can be easily incorporated into your wardrobe.
  • For a boho chic look, go for leather gladiators in either brown or black. Keep im mind, black emphasizes the feet.
  • For a more sophisticated look, opt for metallic sandals. Remember to pair these with clothing of same shade. Never pair a Silver dress with a pair of Gold sandals.
  • For a casual chic look, Go for suede sandals or sandals in a snakeskin print.

Here are a few ways you can style the Gladiator Sandals, keeping current trends in mind:

Look II - For a Brunch with the Ladies, team up these ultra feminine gladiators with a lace top, ankle length denim and a cardigan. These sandals are a statement in itself, so remember to keep the rest of your look neutral. 
Look III - Want to channel the roman vibe this spring? Team up a pair of knee high gladiators with a skater skirt and a pastel colored top. Accessorize with a matching bag and simple accessories. 
Look IV - Feeling a little Boho? Wear your favorite pair of cutoffs with a printed top, cat eye sunglasses and ankle strap gladiators. Add beaded bracelets and a cross-body bag in a bright color to the look and you are all set.
