Gladiators are becoming a hot trend within the world of fashion. Believe it or not, they are everything you’d like them to be – comfortable, lightweight, stylish. And guess what, they allow your feet to breathe! Whether you’re dressing up for a walk around the city, a date or the runway, gladiators surely make the cut. They have popped up in various forms – from ankle-length to mid-calf to thigh-high versions. Agreed, a trend this bold and statement-making is considerably tricky to style. There are plenty of outfits you can pair with gladiators, but to make it easier for you we have come up with a list of styling possibilities.

For those of you who don’t already own a pair and want to buy one, here are a few things to keep in mind:
1. Gladiator sandals with too many straps make the feet look wider and the legs shorter.
2. Ankle-high flats are leg-length suicide! However, those that stop just before the ankle look good on most of us.
3. Gladiators in nude colours create the illusion of slim and long legs. Also, heels help counter the shortening effect.
4. For mid-calf to knee-high versions, keep the accessories minimal.
And the most important thing- remember to take care of your feet!
