Are you as excited about spring in Australia as I am? Finally we can turn off our heaters and put away those big, bulky jackets. In fact, wearing lighter clothes is one of the things I love most about spring; it feels like a huge weight lifted off your shoulder – pun intended.
With every new season comes new trends in fashion. The 70s are still the decade to channel; think flared pants, flowy blouses and lots of suede. The main trend for spring, though, is anything lace-up.
First seen on the Chloé runway, lace-up sandals, gladiators and clothes have found their way into high street fashion labels’ collections. So get inspired by the following finds of spring’s hottest fashion trend, lace-up.
This is where it all started: The original Chloé lace-up sandals are every fashionista’s dream this season. They’re extremely versatile and thanks to a low heel, comfortable, too! With a hefty price tag of $1890, they’re going to remain a dream for me. Thankfully, a lot of cheaper brands have picked up on the trend.
These MissGuided gladiators are the more dramatic version of the Chloé ones and are sure to make any summer dress look extra cool.
If effortless had a name, it would be Asos Lace-Up Denim Dress. Not only are denim dresses on trend, but combined with the white laces it takes you to the next level of fashionable.
For a more elegant, feminine look, opt for this white lace-up blouse. It will take you from work to drinks with your friends effortlessly without a need to accessorise. The lace-up neckline is a showstopper all by itself.
This pencil skirt is anything but boring. With its lace-up details on the hips, it accentuates your waistline and seems inspired by corsets – definitely not for the timid!
