From the towering woven sandals at Jean Paul Gaultier to the “It” strappy jellies of the season at Givenchy, these revamped gladiator must-haves for spring will have you serving the scene Spartan-chic style as actress Lena Headey did in the box office hit, 300.
Ladies, no worries these aren’t the same uncomfortable “summertime specials” from your childhood coming to haunt you. Clearly the fashion gods have designed in your favor!
What type of gladiator are you: patent, exotic skins, high-top, metallic, bold colored or classic leather? No matter which style you choose, these fashion faves are sure to jazz up a pair of mini high-waist shorts or add that creative flair to any pop art inspired dress this season.
Every glam diva should invest in a pair for the spring; they’ll definitely give your “red bottoms” a rest from all the upcoming red carpet events.
