This month we’ve been dying to get in the game when it comes to one of this season’s hottest trends: gladiator sandals. However, some of us here at NBNW are feeling a bit apprehensive about wearing so many straps, buckles, studs, etc. What if your style is more simple and classic? Can even those ladies pull of so much pizzazz below the ankle? The answer, my J. Crew junkies, is yes! We’ve scowered the net to find some simpler versions of the powerful gladiator sandal with all the Grecian charm and elegance as its forbearer. Try these two styles from Asos, an online fashion site known for its fabulous yet affordable fashions. With fewer straps and buckles, these sandals have the same appeal and structure as the runway versions, just a bit more polished and refined. So go ahead, try this new trend for yourself; you may find you’re ready for the Coliseum after all.
