Oh, Stuart Weitzman! When this great shoe designer – favorite of discerning women, from Kate Middleton to Beyonce – goes classic, the results are gorgeous and timeless. But then he goes wild and fun, and irresistible eye-openers like Stuart Weitzman Gladiator Leather Sandals Gold and Black reach right out to grab the adventurous side of your personality. “Wear us!” they exclaim, “Spring is almost here! Let’s get fresh and glamorous! Let’s get funky! And let’s make ‘em notice!”
Just look at those shoes. Each one is a sexy ladder of slender, horizontal leather straps that softly, stretchily embraces your leg from your toes to the knee! The flat leather sandal foot is graceful beneath your sole, with the tiniest slip of stacked heel. They glint with tiny metal studs up the front and both sides, and have a soft inside zip closure to make them easy to get into. There are two versions: subtly metallic black Nappa leather with silvery studs, and metallic Nappa with gold studs. These are strappy flat sandals for women taken to the nth degree! But assembling a look to do them justice? We’ve got a trio of ideas.
- Casual Day. In a way, one key to wearing these is remembering their design origin: the high-top medieval sandals worn by the soldiers of Ancient Rome. That sounds odd for designer women’s sandals, but the point is that they’re meant to be moved in, walked in, enjoyed around town with, especially when the weather’s fine. Wear the Stuart Weitzman Leather Gladiator Sandals Black with daytime casuals like cute shorter shorts with a draped top in a flowing print, letting quite a length of leg show. You can also choose to sport an asymmetrical layered tunic look, keeping it relatively simple so as not to compete with the impact of those straps! You can go for style contrast, too, by staying tailored: an open collared shirt, and a short skirt in a pastel color, with a leather shoulder-strap bag. Look like a knockout with these women’s designer shoes.
- By the Beautiful Sea. Resort, beach strolling, boardwalk. Depending on both place and time, either the gold or black pair fit into a sea-breeze’s scenario. Here’s where longer flowing skirts with a high-slit opening, like a sarong or pareo, pair gorgeously with the suddenly revealed strapped leg and foot. Or show be-sandalled legs all the way beneath a fluttery tunic cover-up, or a tiered gauze skirtlet and tank top.
- Evening Out. The kind of exciting spring night that calls for these designer gladiator sandals also calls for a body-skimming mini dress in a smooth, sensuous fabric. Think how great the black pair will look with a black dress. Envision the silver with white or palest gray – then switch those combos in your mind’s eye! Keep the accessories fussless, except for one cluster of accent: perhaps high-detail dangly earrings, or a fall of long necklaces. Let these wonderful, sexy, strong sandals do most of the messaging (but don’t forget the metallic toenail polish.)
Just a few guidelines to start you thinking! The universe of style that opens up with Stuart Weitzman designer shoes for women is guaranteed to get your imagination in gear.
