Rise up in Gladiator Sandals!

Ok. This is a trend I wasn’t too sure about at first, but know I’m turning the corner.  I think it was the stiletto version of gladiators that threw me off.  They seemed a little too brazen or even cartoonish, but the flat versions have a nice bohemian feel.  Gladiator sandals are not necessarily a new trend but will definitely be revisited strongly this spring.  I think that they would look absolutely adorable with a soft, flowing mini dress like I saw in a Macy’s fashion show last week.  So, I was on the fence, but now I think they’re a go.  What do you think? Will the inner gladiator in you rise up this spring?

Trend: Over-the-Knee Boots

I believe I mentioned in a previous post that I find over-the-knee boots to be a little intimidating.  First, I am petite and I fear wearing a boot that comes to my thigh might take up the entire length of my thighs and make me look shorter.  Secondly, some boots are a little reminiscent of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.  After being out and and about and seeing over-the-knee boots on a variety of women, I’m starting to warm up to the idea.  I actually have a pair of grey ones I bought a few years ago but I rarely wear them.  I’ve been drawn to the basic black, low heel boots.  These would be a great fall staple because they are a little more subtle and versatile.  I can see pairing these with a flowy mini dress and moto jacket or leggings and a cozy knit sweater.  Piperlime has some good options and I’ve selected my favorites to share with you.

Black over-the-knee boots

 

1) I love the polished leather look of these French Connection Yolanda boots and the buckle detail provides just enough edge.
2) Stuart Weitzman 50/50 thigh boots have become the model that other designers are imitating.  They are a huge celebrity favorite with their sleek, sophisticated style.
3) I think these Franco Sarto boots can give the pricey Stuart Weitzman boots a run for their money.  The Franco Sarto boot is very similar for only $179!
4) Rachel Roy Gavin  boots are a true representation of Rachel Roy’s posh style with the gorgeous gold lining detail.
5) Wow! What more can I say. These Sigerson Morrison ILAINE boots are soooo hot!
6) The Report Gwyn  boots have a gold zipper detail that runs across the back of the boot making this black boot stand out from the rest.
Happy Shopping!
