How To Style Lace-Up Sandals

September 17, 2014

Want to incorporate the hottest footwear trend into your wardrobe without going over your credit limit? Lace-up sandals are a versatile choice of footwear since they are often very affordable, and can be used to dress an outfit up or down. Below are just a few simple ways to style your new lace-up shoes.

Minimalist dress

If you want to channel some simple Swedish fashion-blogger vibes, then wear your favourite lace-up sandals with a classic dress. Make sure the fit of the shoes is comfortable and generally avoid buying online if you’re unsure of your sizing. Finish off with a chic satchel bag to carry all of your bits and bobs.


Not the kind of suit you’re thinking about! One of the hottest trends this season is coordinates – which usually consists of a matching blazer and shorts/skirt combination. Choose a pair of black, white, or neutral coloured sandals which won’t overpower the rest of the look.


For the ultimate casual look, wear your favourite pair of distressed denim jeans with a cute pair of lace-up flats. Soft pastel colours work best with darker skin tones, and monochrome colours are perfect if you have fair skin.

Midi skirt

For a subtle hint of sophistication, pair your lace-up sandals with a form-fitting midi skirt. This is a classic look which is appropriate for the office, drinks or even a formal dinner. Just throw on a structured blazer and a textured clutch to complete the overall look.
