Kick It With Lace-Up Boots

By  |  0 Comments

When utilitarian lace-up boots first appeared on the trend radar, I wasn’t sure how I felt about them. I’ve always loved short leather boots, but how was something so bulky and androgynous going to fit into my feminine wardrobe

Yet that’s exactly the idea.  These boots work perfectly into any girl’sstyle, whether she’s bohemian, minimalist, girly, or classic. To illustrate this versatility, I laid out a few different ways you could wear my favorite lace-up boot – the Steve Madden Troopa:

No matter what’s hanging in your closet, lace-up boots will become your favorite fall piece.  As shown above, they work equally well with skinny jeans, leggings, dresses, and skirts, and you can even wear them during the summer to toughen up your favorite sundresses. 

Using this as your guide, how will you wear these trendy boots?
