Say hello to lace-up flat shoes. Today’s topic is dedicated to my favorite ways how to wear lace-up flats in real life and stay trendy this year. It’s no secret, ballerina-inspired shoes are dominating the streets this year. They come in different forms, starting from sandals to closed-toe flats. These shoes are a great alternative to stiletto heels and classic pumps. They look dressy, functional and very easy to style. If you are a beginner in this footwear style, then you better read on, as I’ve got plenty of tips and tricks how to make these shoes look sweet and girlish. Would love to hear your own thoughts in the comments below.
First of all, lace-up flats look awesome with casual basics. You can try these shoes styled with casual denim, chinos or dressy shorts. Indeed, I think any pair of shorts will look awesome styled with lace-up flats. All you need is to add a button-down shirt, blouse or a simple top and throw on a cardigan or coat. Speaking of trousers, then everything depends on your personal style, as you can go for skinnies, boyfriend’s jeans, or slim-fit bottoms. My personal suggestion is to wear ankle-length jeans, so your flat shoelaces can be seen. Anyway, complete your look by adding a basic tee, stripe top, lace blouse or graphic T-shirt that can be covered with blazer or leather jacket. Those ladies who are looking for girlish looks, then you better choose skirts. Any kind of skirt will definitely match your personality. No matter if it’s denim skirt, maxi skirt, midi, mini, pleated or pencil skirt, your lace-up flats will ideally match each one of these bottoms. I love to see ladies who appear in pencil skirt styled with a classic button-down shirt and tailored blazer. The result looks polished and ladylike. If you think this footwear is great only for casual or work wear, then you are not right. You can wear them with your favorite frocks and cocktail-appropriate separates. All you need is to define your style and you are ready to hit the streets.
