This season we have seen very high sandals, that come up all the way to the knee (from Balenciaga) I personally dont like that at all, its a bit " too much".
But then, other designers took the trend and made it more wearable, like D&G.
I love how they combined the trend with the fabrics and shapes they used in their S/S 08 collection.
Gladiator sandals are becoming must haves this season, and you can probably get them in any high street store, since its a stong trend.
When it comes to styling them, I would advice you to wear them with a nice short flowy dress, or a pair of trendy shorts, you can play with colors and prints, but pale creams are also nice.
If you want to wear them with jeans, I recommend you to wear them with skinny´s, you could wear them with flare pants but that just means they would get lost in them.
