Chrissy Teigen Wore the Gladiator Sandal Trend

One of the many beautiful things about living in Los Angeles is that you can get away with wearing spring shoe trends in January. One person who fully embraces this is Chrissy Teigen. Earlier this week, despite the fact that she was grocery shopping, Teigen wore a stylish spring outfit that will make you want to count the days until spring weather arrives (if you don’t call Southern California home).

You may recall that one of the biggest trends last spring and summer is boilersuits, and as Teigen proves, they’re still going strong, but it’s what she paired them with that may make you do a double-take. Remember last year when the only controversial shoe trend anyone could talk about was flip-flops, Well, there’s a new (Chrissy Teigen-endorsed) trend in town, and it’s arguably as controversial as flip-flops: gladiator sandals. Remember circa 2015 when the market was saturated with gladiators that went up to one’s knees? The polarizing style is officially back, in variations that go from ankle to knee, and the runways of Valentino, Stella McCartney, and Christian Dior (to name a few) prove it. Teigen opted for a thong Ancient Greek Sandals pair, which are a great option if you’re up for trying the trend again but kind of just want to play it safe (and still love the flip-flop trend).
