It may seem like warm days are painfully far off at this point, but the polar vortex can really only last so long. Rather than stare out blankly at the piles of snow, take these blustery, cold days to begin sketching out your spring must-have list. Perhaps nothing should top that list more than a new pair of gladiator sandals. Flat or with a block heel, this strappy style is back and bigger than ever for spring and summer 2014. Go ahead and plan to put those gladiator sandals from a few seasons ago back in rotation if you have them, but consider also choosing a newly-updated style with studs or other embellishments. Buy them now and you’ll be all set when the mercury finally begins to rise.
