This one is rather a come-back, but in fashion isn't everything is? It is circle of fashion. But if you haven't noticed yet the big news is, Knee High Gladiators are in vogue again. They were a hit on the spring-runways, later among the edgy and bold celebrities, and it is permeating to the street too. But perhaps only the creamy layer on the street yet. But it can surely trickle down further.
But before it becomes a fairly common sight, why don't you trend-setters get yourself a pair? A piece of advice though, these would visually cut your legs in half, and hence make you look shorter. But if you are blessed with good height.. this one is for you. But there is a way around it. Either wear something like Alexander Wang's minimal gladiator interpretation. Wear them not in a high-contrasting black, instead choose a tan color closer to your skin tone. Or finish below the calf, and make sure you pair it with super-short shorts.
But all that said, you still need to see the trend for yourself right? So here we go.
