From the city sidewalks to the red carpets, the look of lace-up accents has been causing a sensation everywhere. This season, lacing detail is making its way onto tight-fitting frocks and bohemian blouses, bringing a popular ‘90s trend back to life for modern day. If you’re wondering how to sport lace-up accents this season, we’ve compiled a few runway inspired ways to get the look for yourself.
For a casual take on the lace-up bodice, look no further than the Proenza Schouler runway. The look of a bright yellow turtleneck maxi dress receives an edgy update with contrasting white lacing on the bustline. Meanwhile, the dress with its curve-hugging silhouette and cut-outs is perfectly accessorized with a pair of gleaming white leather boots.
Although the lace-up trend may seem overly sexy for a day at the office, take your cues from the DKNY catwalk and transform it into a workplace essential. A simple black blazer or collared sweater can be easily combined with a long silky red skirt, accented with subtle lacing for a sophisticated look. Slip into black tights and add black lace-up ankle boots to complete your funky yet functional work ensemble.
For the evening hours, the lace-up trend makes a grand entrance in the form of a one-shouldered black minidress (as spotted at Anthony Vaccarello). With sultry lace-up ribbons on one side of the frock, the style truly comes to life for a night on the town.
