Subtle yet sexy, lace up detailing is a trend that’s definitely here to stay. Leading designers, like Isabel Marant, took note of the trend, adding the flirty accent to warm and cozy knits. Rising models and seasoned vets, like Bella Hadid and Candice Swanepoel have both sported this wardrobe must-have.
For an easy warmer weather look, team a lightweight knit version with high waist denim cutoffs. Meanwhile, in colder temps, a lace up sweater is the perfect way to stay cozy and chic. Wear your own for an instant sense of off-duty model vibes. Bonus points if you style with high waist jeans, or pair with a skinny belt and printed trousers.
Sasa, a FIT student and head of fashion blog Shall We Sasa, looks elegant and ladylike with a beige lace up sweater. This season is all about unexpected extras, and Sasa went for a sophisticated approach by teaming with a fringed skirt. Sometimes, the key to a stand out look is found in all of the little details. Sasa styled her sweater with an iconic Chanel brooch, coordinating with her classic handbag and bringing this whole look together.
Katarina Vidic, fashion blogger at Katiquette Style and hailing from Slovenia, wears the lace up trend well. This style setter opted for a gray lace up sweater and paired with matching denim skinnies. Keep the strings unlaced to create a cool, boho-chic feel and show off a sexy hint of décolletage. Invest in neutral colors, like cream or gray, which are perfect for season after season wear. Lightly draping an edgy motorcycle jacket over her shoulders, Vidic looks chic and comfy in a pair of simple slip on sneakers. Try out her timeless look for yourself for that cool-without-trying type of vibe.
Totally OMG-worthy—bring sexy back with corset style detailing - but from the behind. Look back over your shoulder for a more subtle way of wearing this trend. For an effortless look, wear a lace up sweater that looks just as cute when viewed from the back just like Chloe from Chloe From the Woods does. Pair with leggings and ankle booties for an easy go-to look. You’ll turn heads in this notice-me wardrobe staple. Switch up a low-key outfit with slightly dressy, yet altogether unexpected pieces. Oh, what fun! Toast the season in the best way possible, wearing an eye-catching lace up sweater.
