Gladiator sandals and heels were all the rave at one point in time. They saturated the fashion scene from celebrities wearing high-end designer brands to everyday people wearing the knock offs. They were literally everywhere! The gladiator style is somewhat tricky though  in my opinion. There are many different styles (some bulkier than others, some that go higher up than others) and what I discovered was that balance is key. You need the right garments to balance out the shoe. If you have a bulkier shoe, go with a simple outfit on top but if you have a less bulky shoe, you can ramp it up with the accessories a bit. I never felt that I could find the right shoe that fit my style…until now.

I spotted these Aldo heels and was immediately drawn to them. They have the classic gladiator look and only come up to just below the calf (which works for me because I have large calves anyway). They are noticeable but not overwhelming even with the bright red color. I still wanted to keep my outfit more of a  minimalist style so I went for a more casual look. I also tied in a colored necklace and a few gold bangles to accessorize and complete the outfit.
