It’s that time of year again. You’ve painted your toes, shaved your legs, and slathered on lotion – and now you’re ready to dig out your favorite skirts and dresses and make the most of sandal season! One summer favorite we absolutely cannot get enough of this year is our iconic Tris gladiator wedge. We’re all about lacing up these comfortable platform wedges and pairing them with just about everything in our closet this season.
Want to make the gladiator wedge your on-repeat, go-to style for summer? You totally can! There’s so many different ways to wear this fun warm-weather staple, making it fresh and unique each and every time. Looking for some inspo? Here’s how our favorite Nicole influencers are styling the Tris this season.
Breezy and Boho
Understated bohemian essentials are the trend this season, and the gladiator wedge is the ultimate step towards achieving this look. We love how our friends at R.J. Pope styled the Tris with two fun and flirty boho-inspired pieces for a sweet and breezy summer look. Wrap skirts are a definite yes this season, so we’re totally obsessing over this yellow polka-dotted piece. And who doesn’t love a basic white tank, cropped just above the waist for a young, playful vibe? A look like this is perfect if you plan to spend your summer beachside, strolling along the boardwalk and taking in the warm, salty air. Add in a round, woven crossbody and a wide-brimmed hat, and you’ve got yourself the definitive beach-ready ensemble.
What’s prettier than a pinstripe dress or romper? Short answer, nothing. That’s why we were so excited to see how Tamara of @tamaras_style styled her Tris wedges. The blue pairs so beautifully with the gold Tris, creating a gorgeous contrast that really plays up the metallic accents. Her gold accessories continue to carry this forward, and her bright red lip makes the perfect statement to finish off such a polished look. We envision this ensemble being worn at a luxurious beachside resort or while sailing off towards tropical sands aboard an all-inclusive cruise vacation. No matter where you’re headed, or even if you simply plan to spend your summer locally, a look like this is sure to make you feel put-together for any occasion.
White pants, colorful tops, and fun patterns are a definite win for any on-trend summer look. And this bright and happy look from Megan Wingate pulls all these aspects together in an easy, effortless way. The white distressed jeans are an absolute summer essential and compliment her bright red polka-dot top so beautifully. We love how she’s added in contrast with the black Tris wedges, giving the look an air of polish and sophistication. Marbled earrings and oversized sunnies complete the outfit and add a playful element perfect for summer. So if you’re on the lookout for a work-to-weekend style for your Tris wedges, you can’t go wrong with a look like this one.
