10 lace-ups that go way beyond shoes

By Elizabeth Odey, 7 May 2017

How’s your loop-de-loop skills looking? Well, you’re going to have plenty of opportunity to practice your lace-tying with this season's latest trend. From corset details on tops to laced-up legs, these top 10 styles are looking tight…

1. Sleeve it out

This season is all about the sleeve drama, so it makes sartorial sense for those sleeves to be laced from top to bottom.

2. Hips don’t lie

Shirt dresses have this annoying tendency to swallow your silhouette. This lace-up feature is kinda genius, as it grants you the power to recreate your shape. Work it, girl.

3. Tee ties

Nothing can beat a basic white T-shirt. Nothing. Well, except maybe when gives a subtle nod to the season’s latest trend. We accept.

4. Short strings

The black satin ribbon + washed-out denim + metal eyelets. This is the new grunge done oh-so right.

5. Over it

Noticed corsets popping up on your Instagram feed? They may be bold, but it’s easier to pull off than you think. Just add a minimal work shirt and plain-coloured denim for no-hass layering perfection.

7. Coloured corseting

If you’re wanting to take the look a little further, let this colour-blocking T-shirt dress sort you. Pair with a black leather jacket for some major going out-out game.

8. Naughty knots

Who knew that those Xtina-esque lace-up-crotch pants of the early 00s would come full circle – except this time round, they’re waaay more wearable.
