STYLE GURU STYLE: Dress Up With Lace-Up

Who doesn’t love a killer pair of pumps? When dressing up or going out, I love making a bold statement with my shoes. Paired with a dress or skinny jeans, this season’s lace-up heels are so in style.

Drawing inspiration from Valentino’s spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection, I’m wearing my own fashionable lace-up pumps and a tunic dress. This spring Valentino collection includes a mix of exotic printed dresses that are both long and short paired with lace-up shoes. The collection was inspired by African patterns and designs, and I think this is why the collection stands out. Pairing a printed dress with lace-up heels is sure to make a beautiful pair.

I wore Steve Madden’s lace-up heels in suede and paired them with a short tunic dress. This type of outfit is perfect for any formal event and is sure to turn heads. Not only are pumps like these stylish, but they’re also much more affordable than a pair of Valentino shoes!

I laced up my shoes only to my ankle, but you can also lace them all the way up your legs for a sexier look. In addition to wearing them with a dress, these heels can go with jeans also for a more put together look!

Lace-up shoes are very popular right now and are being sold at stores everywhere. This style of shoe can also be worn as a flat shoe in a more casual way. Nordstrom sells them, but even stores like Old Navy are selling them. Get your lace up look at stores near you to always make a bold statement with your shoes.
