We're smack-dab in the middle of summer and if there are some warm-weather trends you have yet to try out, now's the time to give 'em a go. Below, we focused on six trending styles that are specific to the spring/summer 2015 season—think of this as your checklist, if you will.

Gladiator Sandals

Lace-up silos were the must-have style for the spring/summer 2015 season. After the Grecian-inspired shoe made a mark on the Chloé runway, more affordable variations popped up everywhere.
