OOTD: Gladiators for Summer

Kourtney Kardashian definitely inspired me to buy my first pair of knee high gladiators last year- guilty! However, even after having them for so long, I finally pulled them out for the first time just just a few days ago! After buying them, I started feeling a little too dominatrix-y for my liking, so until I figured out how to style them, I wasn’t comfortable wearing them out in public. I decided to go with a peach shift dress and black/gold accessories to style the gladiators, and I loved the look!

2014 was the year of high waisted skirts for me. I picked up this gem in Singapore, and I love the pleating! It makes it a bit fancier, and gives a definite shape. If you have smaller hips like me, look for something like pleating to help give you shape! I paired this metallic cropped sweater to jazz up the black a bit, and make the outfit a bit more festive. The gladiators were added to give the look a bit more masculinity with the feminine pieces. I love how it turned out!
