Trend Report–Week of 10/9/2015: Embrace the Lace Up
October 10, 2015
The “it shoes” of the moment are definitely the pointed toe, lace up flat and heel. These shoes have been spotted everywhere from Alexa Chung to ASOS, and are a fierce update to your basic black pump or flat. Pointed toes are known to naturally elongate you legs, and laces that continue up the ankle are can give an illusion of small calves.
The wide criss-cross of the laces gives the shoe a touch of sex appeal, and the pointed toe is perfect for your “feeling witchy” October vibes. Seen in a classic patent leather or trendy suede, these shoes are an easy way to compliment your LBD for date night or dress up your blue jeans for the office. Although a thick stacked heel is on trend for Fall, the lace up pumps look best with a stiletto heel, making even the most distressed boyfriend jeans look polished. I have been looking for a new shoe to replace my favorite Steve Madden heels for ages, and I look forward to shopping around for this style.
