STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Lace-up Love

One of the biggest trends I’ve seen this summer is lace-up detailing. Whether it’s on tops, dresses or even pants, this trend is a simple way to make an outfit stand out for any occasion. Although simple, this trend can actually be styled in multiple ways because it is so versatile. A great feature of this trend is that the laces are adjustable, so the fit can be as tight or as loose as you desire. You can also choose whether or not to tie the laces; this Fashionista chose to leave them untied for a more casual, laid back look

The lace-up trend has been a stand-out piece in the flood of ‘70s inspired trends we’ve seen this past spring/summer season. What’s kept this trend alive for so long is it’s versatility. Since this trend can be styled so many ways, people keep finding new ways to wear it. I can see the trend lasting through the fall season.

This Fashionista styled her lace-up dress with cute summery wedges and some statement jewelry including a silver cuff bracelet and a yellow ring. What I love about her outfit is it can be easily dressed up or down for any occasion. Here, she has a great casual summer daytime look, but with a change as simple as switching to professional shoes and conservative jewelry, she could easily go to work in this outfit. With another switch of shoes, this look is perfect for date night or a girl’s night out.

What is your STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK? “I like the lace-up detail because it’s something easy to wear and you can make it as sassy or as modest as you want. Wear it to work tied and then go out to the club and untie it to show some skin.”
