In the world of fashion, new trends rise and fall with every season. This spring, the return of 70’s style fashion has brought the old lace-up trend back to the forefront. This trend can be seen anywhere from sweaters, shorts, dresses, and shoes, to swimsuits. Even Hollywood stars have been seen rocking new looks that feature the lace-up fashion. Designers have been racing to create new looks incorporating this trend and keep up with the latest lace-up craze.

It doesn’t matter if it is the front, back, or sides of a shirt, the retro-lace up design is sure to make an appearance. Stores such as Brandy Melville, Nasty Gal, and Urban Outfitters, have all featured the lace-up design in their clothing in a variety of different ways. Whether on short crop tops, knit skirts, bralettes, and more create, lacing up your outfits create an edgy and fun new look. As this trend is a tribute to the Woodstock Days, you can be assured that lace-up clothes will be seen at all the concerts and festivals this season, from Coachella to GovBall.

All the way in Hollywood, actors and actress have been spotted walking down the streets to red carpets, showing off their latest lace-up clothing. At this year’s Paris Fashion Week, Selena Gomez rocked a low cut, black, lace-up top. High end designers such as Givenchy, Alexander Wang, and Sacai, have also incorporated this trend into their 2016 spring and summer collections. They have brought the lace-up trend all the way from clothing to shoes.

As we move towards the 2016 summer season, the lace-up trend will be sure to follow. Lace-up bathing suits and sandals will be plentiful, as you walk and sit out in the hot sun. Whether you are going to the beach, out to dinner, or a concert, the lace-up trend is a comfortable and stylish new way to bring some vintage back into your closet.
