Lace-up anything is all the rage. Lace-up flats were huge this summer and I have to admit that I wasn’t so crazy about them in the beginning. They have definitely grown on me, but I would only wear them in taupe or black. When it comes to lace-up clothes, I’m especially in love with tops that lace up the back and skirts that lace up the sides. Even though Lace-Ups have been emerging in a big way in the fashion industry, I think that many women shy away from wearing lace-up tops because they have a design feature that is prominent in lingerie. And for some, this may not necessarily be the image you want to project. However, tops are being made with pretty lace-up features that resemble nothing you’d find in Agent Provocateur – or basically anything that Kim Kardashian is wearing.
If you are shopping for a lace-up top, my advice is to be cautious about buying tops with bell sleeves, especially white ones! Hint…Argh matey. Here is a round-up of some really pretty lace-up clothes that are flirty, but refined and totally feminine.
