Toughen Up Your Look With Lace Up Boots

While all things 80’s inspired are taking over, there are a few styles lingering that summon the spirit of the 90’s grunge era. The style I’m particularly loving is the lace up boot.

Lace-up boots have a certain irreverence to them that makes any look more fashion-forward. They are also incredibly versatile. Wear them with jeans, leggings, miniskirts, or even dresses, from floaty florals to body-con minis.

Use your lace-ups to complete an already edgy look like Lindsay Lohan or a hipster one like Emma Roberts. Toughen up a sweet floral frock with a distressed pair like Rachel Bilson or use them to add a bit of pizazz for a casual daytime look like Diane Kruger.

This style is definitely the one I’m most excited about for Fall. Read on for my top 10 picks!

Ann Demeulemeester Lace-Up Flat Boots, $1,105. A classic pair of combat-inspired boots are fantastically bad-ass.
