Style Challenge: What to wear with … gladiator sandals!

Gladiator-sandals!

For our next Style Challenge, we're going a little bit easier on you. Gladiator sandals, as you all know, are the trend that just won't die at the moment: they're everywhere, and on everyone, and if you're lucky, you may even like them, in which case this challenge will be super-easy for you!

We get a lot of emails from people who want to know just what they're supposed to wear with gladiator sandals, though, so for the benefit of those people – and also just for fun – your challenge is to use Polyvore to build an outfit around the sandals you see above.

The comments on this entry will stay open until sometime on Monday, to allow you to post the link to your item, and you'll find the rules of the game under the jump. Have fun!

The Rules:

1. Log-in to Polyvore (you may need to create an account first, if you don't already have one)

2. You'll find the sandals here. Build your outfit around them (be as creative as you like), save it and then…

3. Post a link to your completed outfit in the comments on this post. We'll publish them all next week sometime, and you can vote for your favourite.

4. Please note: you're free to post links to as many outfits as you like, but please be aware that we'll only post one entry per person. You can let us know which one you'd like us to use if you wish – if you don't specify one, we'll just choose the first one posted.

5. Once you've posted your link, please double check it to make sure it's working properly!

    I seriously doubt I’d ever wear gladiator sandals, but if I absolutely had to, it would probably look something like this:

    Another idea I really like. I think it goes quite well with the gladiator sandals.

    oh, I should have looked at the other entries before proceeding, someone else already used the same dress that I chose.
    Sorry, allib, I didn’t mean to copy!
    I think we took it in quite different directions though, so I’m not going to change mine.

    I have a pair that only have two straps around the ankle, so they arent very…tacky. I usually wear them with a loose dress or skinny jeans. Or shorts πŸ™‚

    I’ve never worn gladiators before, but they look kinda fun, especially if you’re dressing up as a Greek goddess for Halloween.

    I hate things like this – they’re nice, but some people just can’t grasp how they should be worn. Real shame.
