No summer outfit is complete without the perfect pair of shoes, and TODAY style expert and editor of The LV Guide Lilliana Vazquez is here with the hottest styles to complete your look.

Gladiator sandals

Whether you're petite or tall, these sandals add some bohemian flare to your outfit. They come in all different lengths, from calf-high to knee-high. However, Vazquez recommends that those who are shorter should stick with sandals that hit below the calf so that they don't overwhelm your leg. Wear with shorter length skirts, dresses and shorts that are simple and neutral to show off this strappy summer wear.
