You would have to be completely oblivious to not know the lace-up trend has taken over the fashion world.  It's literally everywhere!  It's on tops, dresses, bags, shoes... the list goes on and on.

So we decided we would dedicate an entire post just to this hot fashion feature!  We were inspired by a few photos and thought it would be fun to recreate each look!

Believe it or not, Fall will be here before you know it!  We are already getting pre-fall fashions in the store.  Yes, it may be topping out at 95 degrees, but the fashion world doesn't blink. 

Gidi Hadid is rocking the lace-up trend in a lightweight beige sweater.  Knowing her status, I doubt her top has the $42 price point of our look-for-less.  All you need to finish this look is some dark-wash jeans and over-the-knee boots!

If you can't wait until Fall to wear this look, swap out your jeans and boots for denim shorts and flip-flops.  This lightweight sweater is great for cooler summer nights!

No matter the season, there is nothing better than a denim chambray dress.  And when you add in the lace-up bodice, it's irresistible!  I love this look for brunch with your boy and his family, or even for a quick dinner on vacation!

You can find this nearly identical chambray shirt dress at Single Thread for only $45!  That leaves you enough money to recreate the rest of the look!  Add your favorite braided flats and a crossbody bag so you can throw in your sunnies and some change for a snowcone!

Easily transition this shirt dress into the fall by tying a plaid flannel around the waist.  When the temperature starts to fluctuate and you get a little cool, it's nice to have more coverage.  Add some booties and your look is complete!

I honestly think the lace-up trend originated from footwear.  Before even seeing this detail in garments, I saw it on the feet of fashion bloggers!  The lace-up flat took over and was the easiest way to integrate the trend into your wardrobe.

This basic outfit is jazzed up with these shoes!  When you really look at it, it's an otherwise simple outfit.  It is just a pair of distressed denim, a belt, striped shirt, and crossbody.  These are items that everyone has in their closet!  It would be so easy to recreate!

I love adding some lace-up shoes to an outfit!  It seems to make an outfit really current and adds a little sex appeal.  You don't have to wear this trend with heels as pictured above, there are so many cute flat options out there.  Flats are perfect for any season, especially with Fall approaching quickly!


Are you ready to grab this trend by the (lace-up) strings?
