The Luxe For Less: The Lace-Up Trend



Raise your hand if you love a good bargain.... Thought so and you're in luck. If you're a regular reader you will know my blog's slogan: 'you don't need a million dollars to look a million bucks.' And I have taken this to a new level with my new regular feature: 'The Luxe For Less'. In this regular trend reporting feature, I will be bringing the latest catwalk and street style trends direct to your screen and, more importantly, show you how to get these looks on a shoe-string budget! 

Who approves? Oh yes!

Today's 'Luxe For Less' is all about that saucy lace-up trend. With fashion still freeze-frozen in a 70s time machine (that I want to stay in forever), the eyelet lace-up embellishment has taken over everything from shoes to dresses. So let's get laced up (sorry: dad joke) in this trend and get our luxury fash fix for less!



Lace Up Shoes

This is shoe porn taken to a whole new level! It seems we can't open a glossy mag or our Insta feed without a lush bombarding of lace up shoes. Gone are the days where lace up shoes are considered annoying, these are just hot!

For a night out try lace up heels with a dress swinging just above the knees. If you're in the Northern Hemisphere, and heading into fall, feel free to add tights.

Lace up ballet-pumps are a fashion-forward addition to your office-wear collection and weekend wear alike. Choose a pointed shape to add a really polished vibe to your look. 

Aussies: Let's embrace the gladiator lace up! Summer is here, and it's time to rock those shorts...

Lace Up Body Suits
As seen in summer on Chiara Ferragni and Emily Ratajowski, the lace-up body suit has sky-rocketed to a must-have status! 

If you're feeling super-fly, wear this baby alone and let that cleavage rock! Fancy more of a cover up? Layer over a nude tank for the same effect, sans the **ohmygoshmyboobiesaregonnafallout** worries.

Whether long or short sleeved, black or coloured, this style staple will look fabulous paired with ripped denim or a midi skirt for the day or glammed up with leather pants for an evening do.

Lace Up Tops
Although lace up tops come in all shapes, sizes and patterns, they all have that lush, boho vibe flowing through their seams. 

If you're headed into Autumn, stick to Suede and knitted fabrics to keep the chill at bay. Don't be afraid to layer; tank-top shapes will look equally as chic layered under plain jumpers or worn under faux-fur jackets.

Aussies: The boho-peasant shape is your beach-ready best friend! Layer over a bikini for relaxed days in the sun or wear with a suede skirt for brunch with the girls.

Lace Up Dresses 
Throughout history, dresses have been the epitome of feminine elegance and the lace-up dress takes the classic femininity of the dress and adds some subtle  sex appeal.

For a fashion-forward look at your next dressy event, try a lace-up LBD, like pop star Ellie Goulding.

Or embrace your inner-hippy in a flowy, patterned number.

  23. I'm actually not too sure what I think of the lace up trend. There are definitely some items I love, especially shoes, but I think it can look a bit trashy if you don't combine it nicely with other items. If that makes any sense at all haha

  37. I absolutely adore this trend - I'm so glad you've covered it Rachel! Since Chiara wore the lace-up top there've been so many versions of it and in my opinions, everyone looks incredible in that style. I'm not sure I'd be so brave as to wear it though, so lace-up flats are probably more up my street haha :)

  46. I am definitely loving the lace up trend. It was a huge trend I remember in the 70's I believe, and I absolutely love how they modernized it. I especially love the trend on shoes. Beautiful post.
