Trending: Tying the knot.

It’s coming back and we all know it. Tying the knot – on shoes. What a great transeasonal trend that covers the toes but creates the illusion that you’re showing some skin by actually covering it with some string. It’s the old gladiator sandal but much more elegant and ‘chic’ if you will. Tony Bianco has released a few lust worthy heels from cut-out-esque for those who don’t like them too stringy (ie. “Lash”) to all-tied up (ie. “Avar”). What’s very much on the radar though is the lace-up flat. I think these are going to be all the rage, with (what I predict) many brands will replicate and make them dirt dirt cheap (Rubi Shoes). If you’re on the look-out for snatching a piece of this trend, I would wait until the more affordable brands release their version just incase it’s a trend we see come and go. Already, Therapy Shoes have released a pair for $60 – it ain’t leather, but it definitely competes with any others out there with that price point (available at our Emco Shoes store & online soon).

I’ve never been much of a shoe lace-up person, always finding it very cumbersome to take on and off. However, I do have my eyes dead set on a pair of TBs that are lace-up without the kerfuffle. A zip at the back or on the side of any lacey shoe does wonders and makes it so much more desirable.

But it doesn’t stop there! I’ve seen the lace-up trend popping up on tops for that laid-back, minimal boho look – a must have for the Spring & Summer.

Outfit goals: Clothing with simple silhouettes paired with lace-up shoes, and delicate jewellery! Hopefully an ootd post soon ;)? Too bad the weather is still too cold for lace-up shoes though!
