Final Touch: Off to the Laces
Sportswear styles have taken spring fashion by storm, and with them comes the return of the gladiator – of a sort. Our interpretation? A dose of sporty, a dash of uptown chic.
Start with a black racer-back tank to set the athletic tone, and pair with an artfully printed skirt – something that blends the pale hues that are setting the season’s palette alight (pastel blues and corals) with some dark undertones for added drama.
Then comes the centerpiece: the Trorecia lace-up shootie. Our favourite street style icons have been interpreting lace-up styles with the latest in cult denim (extremely distressed), while celebutantes have been stepping laces up to glam-standards with their Saturday night LBD’s. With its feminine round laces and black-leather upper, this gladiator stays classy with a three-inch block heel. Worn with a long black fitted blazer, you’ve got a work-ready look – but for post-work festivities, embellish-away.
Turn that tank into the backdrop for a gleaming gold statement necklace, the multi-tiered Teare, the perfect companion to a few bangles and some simple button earrings in black, to recall the dark hue of your shooties. Nestle your essentials in the black-and-gilded Exrootip mini-purse, featuring gold-lock detailing and chain link strap – hello-o practical!
Spring has sprung, which means one thing: it’s off to the laces.
