Fashion Trends: Gladiator Sandals & Lace-up Boots Trend

This is the Gladiator Sandal reinvented and I love it! Do you remember a few years ago when Gladiator sandals were the hottest thing, only then they jus were flat Gladiator sandals that were predominantly mid calf length. Well now this hot trend is back with a bang, now rocked knee high, over the knee or with a heel. Many of the top fashion designers have since come out with their own unique gladiator sandal styles. Another current hot shoe trend which compliments the thigh high gladiator trend is the Lace-up thigh high boot trend. Both shoe styles are very versatile; can be worn casually with a simple T and shorts or dressed up with a short dress with bold accessories. Wherever you are trying to add a bit of edge to any outfit, a nice thigh high gladiator heel sandal or lace-up boot will definitely help to accomplish that edgy look.

See more of my gladiator sandal look and also some of the top designer gladiator sandal and Lace-up boot styles...

I'm rocking my thigh high gladiator sandal from Go-Jane paired with simple white shorts and black cut off T. This was a great casual look for a day out with some friends. I added a coloured accent with an orange bag, and topped it off with some black & gold accessories.
