Lace Me Up

The latest trend I’m loving is the lace-up and lattice detailing. It’s very sexy and edgy, the perfect mix of gothic and punk.This style has been completely reincarnated from what it used to be. If you remember the early 00s trend of jeans with lace-up crotches (eww) please don’t worry, the revival is nothing like this.

Now forgive Paris for her sartorial sins and let’s move on!

Nasty Gal have nailed this trend with some amazing styles like these lace-up Tripp NYC trousers.

These trousers might be a little out there for some people’s tastes but I would buy them if I had the $$$!

Tripp NYC are a brand who specialise in gothic, punk and alternative styles. However styles such as the trousers above and below are slowly creeping into mainstream fashion.They are also available on Asos.

I also like this Nasty Gal dress with a lace-up front, it incorporates the trend but in a more feminine way.

Missguided is also an excellent source of lace-up loveliness! This lattice front bodysuit is €28 and looks amazing for a night out. It also comes in white.alt=<missguided bodysuit>

The obvious dilemma with lace-up styles is that your underwear choices are limited! If you prefer something less revealing, here’s a few items with subtle lace-up details.

This white top also from Missguided is perfect for casual wear.

Asos have a bodysuit with lace-up back detailing which is very pretty.

This trend extends to shoes, lace-up flats or ghillie shoes are the ultimate in casual chic. They are glamorous enough to wear with a dress but also look great with jeans.

I love these black patent ones from Warehouse.

These shoes look best in neutral colours such as black, white and beige. Now there’s a sentence I thought I’d never say!!

Love my new @topshop #ghillies €15 bargain! 😀

However Topshop have brought out gorgeous silver and snakeskin versions.

Knee high lace-up boots are also really in fashion at the moment. This is NOT the easiest look to pull off, there’s a very fine line between fashion and trashy.

Very few people can pull these off without looking like (a) a prostitute or (b) Kylie Jenner. I don’t know which is worse…

Alternatively Boohoo.com have a range of more demure lace-up heels.

I imagine these laces would cut your feet after a while  but they look great!
