Lace-up detailing and embellishments are all over the place right now, but one of my current favorite versions of this trend is pants with lace-up detailing. I’ve seen it on denim and leather pants alike either as a detail on the front panel of the pants, ankle, or even all the way up the leg.
It’s a way to add a lot of edginess to what would otherwise be a regular pair of pants. It’s best to keep the top of the outfit pretty basic in terms of color and style to really let the pants shine. They work just as well as a piece for a hot going out look as they do to make a daytime outfit more rocker-chic.
I particularly love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s idea to pair them with a blazer and a white tee. They add such a cool vibe to an outfit that would otherwise be pretty conservative.
Lace-up pants can easily be worn with sneakers, boots, or heels. I personally love the idea of just tucking in a black and white striped tee or a band tee with them and throwing on a pair of pointy black ankle boots. Click the links below to shop the trend!
