Chloe, Alexander McQueen and Balmain were a few designers that included the sandals into their collection. These gladiator sandals look best with a dress just above the knees or with some shorts.
At the SS15 fashion week sheer clothing was very popular among the designers and was seen on almost every catwalk from New York, London, Milan and Paris.

Tom Ford, Burberry Prorsum, Topshop Unique and D&G were just a few designers that played with sheer in their collection. You can rock this trend by wearing a camisole underneath or be daring and go hard with just a bra and some fashionable trousers.
