After a post on one of the seasons hottest trends -- gladiator sandals -- StyleList received the following comment:
Not sure what to wear with my new gladiator sandals. They come up to the knee, and they're the Stuart Weitzman gold ones. Sharp!
Truth be told, with a serious shoe like this, you'll have the most luck wearing them with a knee-length or shorter loose fitting dress. If you're wearing some short, sexy shorts and a dressy cami, you might be able to pull them off (and if the shoes didn't go to the knee, you definitely could rock that look), but a dress is pretty safe.
Many celebrities are pairing their funky gladiators with a short, simple dress, like Mary-Kate Olson here (ignore the giant furry bag). The shoes have so much going on that you don't want your outfit to be competition. Since yours are gold, a cream colored knee length dress would look gorgeous, but you could glam it up with a swingy black dress and some gold hoops, too.
Katie Holmes sports her gladiators with a more flowing frock, which makes for a nice dichotomy of innocent versus dominatrix. You could totally get away with this in just about any color with the gold
