25 Halloween Costumes w/Your LBD

The easiest way to create a last-minute or inexpensive Halloween costume is to start with things you already have. I do it every year, because I get so frustrated with how expensive yet poorly-made most Halloween costumes are. I'd rather use what is already in my closet, or spend a little extra on accessories or a new dress that I can wear anytime of the year. A little black dress is the easiest way to use what you have to create a Halloween costume with a few inexpensive accessories and other accessories you probably already have in your closet.Pictured Above: Halloween Black Mesh Dress


1. Black Cat - This is the easiest way to use your little black dress on Halloween. I know it's pretty much the most generic costume in history, but for good reason - it's just so easy and affordable. It's the perfect last-minute costume for women, because you could really use any black outfit even if you don't have a little black dress. Pair it with your black flats or heels and a…

How to Wear Knee-High Lace-Up Gladiator Sandals


The knee-high gladiator sandal, particularly the lace-up gladiator, is bigger than ever this summer, though styling this trend is still elusive to the average gal. If you're a newbie to the trend, stick with one of these silhouettes, and you can't go wrong. 


1. SHORT T-SHIRT DRESS

This is one of my favorite ways to style the trend. It shows off the legs and really highlights the sandals. This is a really cute summer date look. It's sexy and polished but still casual enough for daytime. Play it safe with a solid-colored dress or pair silver lace-up sandals with a geo-print dress. If you have brown gladiators, pair them with a crisp white button-down shirt dress.


2. FLARED MIDI SKIRT

It's important too pair tall gladiators with a skirt the is knee length or shorter in most cases, but this flared midi skirt hit just below the knee. The thin straps on these particular lace-up gladiators keep the outfit from looking too bottom-heavy. Paired with a sexy crop top, it's perfect for summer. It's a cool look for a summer cocktail party.


3. SHORT SHIFT DRESS

This is the same concept as the body-con T-shirt dress pictured above but in a more relaxed way. It's the perfect look for a weekend girls trip.


4. SHORT SHORTS

Whether you go with dressy shorts, cut-off denim, or a summer romper; short shorts look great with knee-high gladiators. The lace-up sandals like the ones featured in this post look best with a slightly dressy pair of shorts. Pair denim shorts with the classic knee-high gladiators or some cool fringed gladiators.


5. OPEN-FRONT MAXI

While you may not want to pair lace-up gladiators with a long maxi skirt, this is an exception to the rule. A hi-low or front-slit maxi is the perfect way to wear this trend on vacation.

  4. Thanks for the ideas! I am short, I like to appear tall and I feel senuous in a heel. I wish to find a Knee-high Gladiator sandal with 2.5" to 3 inch heel. Most are flat or 4" high. Do you have any suggestions??
