I would say that lace up everything began to appear around last spring. Lace up sandals, lace up tops, lace up dresses, lace up flats, lace up boots and more have become all the rage. This post is another installment of my trend based series, “Trend Tracking.” In these posts I choose a trend and feature a few of my favorite pieces that incorporate that particular trend. Click here to read all of my previous “Trend Tracking” posts! Today I’m talking lace up everything. Let’s get into it, shall we?
My very first lace up purchase was a pair of simple brown faux leather sandals from Target last year. I guess everyone loves these versatile and trendy sandals as much as I do, because Target still carries them here in black, brown, and gold. Target now also carries this pair with a small, chunky heel and faux suede lace up ties (they look exactly like this more expensive pair from Steve Madden!). I also adore this fun pair of Sam Edelman lace up sandals, complete with embroidery, pom poms, and beads. Knowing how much I love the color blush pink, it’s really no surprise that I’m obsessed with these blush pink H&M lace up espadrilles. Lace up tops have also become super common lately and I have to say, I love it. Old Navy carries a few cute ones, including this black and white striped slub-knit tee and this black ruffled short sleeve. I love this lace up sweatshirt from Forever 21, it’s super trendy with it’s lace up v-neck and high-low waistline, but also looks really comfortable. This white tee from H&M has lace up detailing along the sides of the shirt and I love it (also, the top comes in black and grey too and is under $20!). Lace up dresses have been just as trendy as lace up tops. This red one from Madewell looks soft and casual, but I think it could easily be dressed up with a pair of wedges! This mauve number with a lace up back from Forever 21 could also easily look a lot more expensive than it is if you wear the right shoes. As usual, all of the pieces mentioned are pictured and linked below! Click on one you like to shop!
