Good morning readers, I would like to start of by wishing you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! May your food be tasty and your outfits be trendy. Aside from chowing down on turkey and stuffing, on this special Thursday I am talking lace-up garments. Some how fashion designers have turned what used to be considered “racy” into one of the hottest world-wide trends! If you have not yet noticed lace-up bodysuits, crop tops, and dresses, in your favorite stores, now that I’ve mentioned it, I promise you’ll spot them everywhere. Being my first lace-up piece, I started out with a sweet faux suede dress.
I don’t know about you, but “olive” an affordable and versatile number! The Closet Renovation Olive Green Suede Lace-Up Dress from lulus is incredibly soft and only $49! If olive isn’t your color, it also comes in navy. Rock this thing with nude pumps, and flashy gold jewelry on a date night, or tone it down a notch with a pair of booties. For today’s look, I styled this dress with leopard print ankle boots. I always try to mix things up a bit when I am working with a solid color – the animal print was just enough. I further accessorized with a walnut open-knit sweater, a gold tassel cuff, and my favorite army green clutch.
If you live outside of California, pair this dress with a poncho and tall boots for added warmth. The checkered poncho from last week’s post actually matches perfectly. Thank you for your readership and thank you for being you!
