Q. I am crazy in love with Stylebakery.com! I just ordered these gladiator sandals by Nine West. Can you give me some outfit suggestions? -Standing Tall

A. You want to be sure you don’t add anymore “weight” to your outfit so keep the pieces light. Wear trouser jeans to balance the wedge heel or skinny jeans cuffed or long to reveal the full sandal. As for skirts, an A-line or a pencil style that has a hem that hits around the knee will be most flattering. It’s a strong shoe that you can balance with softer pieces on top unless you kick it rocker chic and add a modern cut jacket.
