if you’ve got a touch of the glam girls about you, the lace up shoes trend is going to be right up your street. Simply by adding a lace-up pointy flat to your arsenal you can perk up an everyday skinny jean into something far more sophisticated and investing now in a lace up sandal will keep your warm weather style game on point.
With festival season looming the boho babes amongst us will be looking towards the gladiator, Aztec-inspired or Pom Pom adorned lace up shoes which are landing in stores right now. Stick to gladiator styles which incorporate useful back panel supports, which means once laced up the lacing is more likely to stay in place up your calf rather than ending up pooling in a messy pile by your ankles in an homage to Norah Batty. Heirloom textile details like jacquard and silks might also float your boat.
The street stylistas amongst us will be drooling over hot labels like Paula Cadematori, Malone Souliers, Aquazzura or Sophia Webster who are pushing the envelope on colour blocking, texture mash-ups and on-trend fringing. If they’re not in your price bracket then check out Office, Topshop, Zara and Mango for fab replicas. You might find flatform or wedge lace-ups equally fun so add them to your hit list too.
The Drama diva can go to town on the lace up shoes trend. Whether you have a yen for sky-high heels in crazy colours or textural effects on a flat, there’s a lace up version just waiting for you out there. Look for dramatic details like metallics, rainbow colours or cutout details to feed your lust for the theatrical.
The Chic chick can take advantage of the pile of classic neutrals on offer for the lace up shoe trend. Simple lines with delicate strappy details will catch your eye. Pair them with a neat pencil skirt or a cropped kick flare pant for maximum Audrey Hepburn points.
