If you are not sure what exciting heels and sandals are, you might have a better idea when you have another name: gladiator shoes. They come in many different shapes, from heels with some extra straps that cover up to the ankle area, to heels that have straps that cover all the way to the knees. If you design them properly, they can add an amazing touch of elegance to your clothes. I'm about to show you some of my favorite ways to wear these elegant lace-up shoes.
Strappy heels with black leather jacket and midi skirt
Very often, all black clothes make you look dark and cold, but that is not the case when you wear something feminine like the black strappy heels. For this outfit you can pair the heels with a black leather jacket and a split midi skirt. This is a perfect example of how to dress in a way that looks both cool and fun.
Wear with black shift dress
Another great advantage of wearing strappy heels is that it has so much detail that you can put them together with a very simple outfit and already look good dresses. As an example, you can easily wear a black shirt dress with black straps that have straps that cover up to the middle of the calf.
Black mini dress & Strappy heels
Here's another outfit idea that involves a dress and exciting heels. The heels of this outfit idea cover up to the ankles and they look perfectly matched to the black mini dress. While typical heels or sandals still look great with the dress, the uneven heels add an extra touch of elegance.
Gladiator sandals with long sleeve tee & denim shorts
After sharing some formal ideas for the outfit, I just want to show you that the straight style not only belongs to formal clothes, they really work just as well with causal clothes. As an example, for a typical summer and spring outfit that consists of a long-sleeved t-shirt and denim shorts, you can complement the suit with nude banded sandals. You can see the value of the uneven sandals when you imagine wearing this outfit with white sneakers as the choice for shoes. Sneakers look stylish and relaxed with the outfit while the sandals can make the outfit look elegant.
Strappy Sandals with white tee and green mini skirt
To look refreshing, you can wear lightweight sandals. I think it's fair to call these flip flops. Keep the color of the suit light and refreshing by wearing a white t-shirt and a green mini skirt. I can see this being a very comfortable look for causal hangouts.
Heels with black and white striped T-shirt and pencil skirt
Black strappy heels look great in a black and white outfit. For example, you can wear a black and white striped tee with long sleeves and a black midi pencil skirt with the heels. This can be a good business suit for business people.
Blue Strappy Heels with White Vest Top & Floral Skort
Strappy heels are usually available in black, white and nude. It can be fun to design heels with bright colors like the royal blue heels in this outfit. Usually, when you need to design an object with bright and eye-catching color, you want to keep the color combination as simple as possible. Use this outfit as an example and build the suit around the colors in blue and white. Easily wear the tassel heels with a white vest top and a white and blue floral shirt.
White blouse and cream flange skirt
For another elegant look that is suitable for work, you can pair the already feminine striped heels with other ladylike objects. For example, you can wear a white shirt with a cream flare skirt. This outfit looks so beautiful but it is still professional and looks enough like a work suit.
White Off Shoulder Blouse & Skinny Jeans
A white from the blouse is such a beautiful clothing that just requires a lot of attention. Easily pair it with skinny jeans and black strappy heels for an extra touch of elegance that fits perfectly with blouses off the shoulders.
Strappy heels with black and pink backless halter dress
After talking about some work suits and casual suits, it's time to talk about what to wear at a cocktail party. A great way to style the exciting heels for a cocktail party is to wear them with something ladylike and sexy. The backless floral halter dress can be a choice.
Black and white striped dress & denim jacket
I mentioned in another blog post that I love the black and white striped dress so much that it just looks good as part of a casual street outfit, while many other dresses can easily look overcoated to walk down the street. You can check out my blog post about more black and white striped dress here. Back to this outfit you can pair the striped dress with a large denim jacket and black banded sandals.
Off The Shoulder Boho Blouse & Denim Shorts
This outfit idea is one to watch out for bohofans. You can wear an off-shoulder white boho blouse with denim shorts. Wear knee-high gladiator sandals to fit perfectly with the boho top. Here's how you can look both refreshing and elegant on the beach.
Red Strappy shoes with white shirt & skinny jeans
White top and blue jeans sounds like a very typical outfit that looks decent without surprise. The good news is that you can add some twist with the shoes to spice up the look. You can wear a pair of eye-catching crunchy heels to simply upgrade your entire outfit.
Here are some of my favorite ways to style the exciting heels. Try some of the ideas and see how they fit you. Most of the clothes mentioned in this list are probably the ones you already have in your wardrobe. So just try some shoes in your local stores and have fun playing mix and match.
