Side by side: ghillies are the new go-to
Update your look in an instant with lace-up heels
A quick scroll through your Instagram feed will show you that, for social media’s most stylish stars, it’s all about the lace up. From Kylie Jenner to Aimee Song, everyone is crazy for tie-ups in all their fashionable incarnations. Championed by designer Olivier Rousteing at his provocative Paris label Balmain, there’s no escaping this trend for spring, whether you try it out with a plunging neckline (à la Kim Kardashian), side bod cut-outs (like Diane Kruger) or with an irresistible pair of heels.
A pointy toe pump with a lace up at the ankle is the perfect way to incorporate this trend into your look. The leg-lengthening toe will give you legs for miles and is an easy silhouette to transition into spring—your strappy sandals can wait! While the striking lace-up style is definitely one to reserve for night out when you are angling to dress to impress, there are so many different ways to wear it.
The higher the straps, the more fashion forward—and dramatic—the look. Balance out a provocative, mid-calf tie up with a demure knee length skirt. Choosing both in your favorite neutral tones brings a sense of spring to your ensemble while keeping the overall vibe sophisticated. For a more playful take on the look, pair thinner laces tied at the ankle with a flirty mini dress. These shoes work with all of your favorite skirts and dresses and instantly update your classic basics for spring 2016—with a sexy twist, of course.
