Lace Yourself

This look was mainly inspired by the 70's trend that took center stage early this Summer. I immediately fell in love with the easy and fun vibes that came with that era and the fashion during that time. I especially love the interesting shapes incorporated in the pieces like this button-front denim skirt from Forever21. Which, by the way, this entire outfit is from Forever21 (that never happens)! I loved all the different styles this particular skirt came in - from faux suede textures to this corduroy pleated version. My most favorite part of this look (and recent addition to my closet) is this white lace-up top - giving the classic white button-up such an interesting spin (similar here and here). I've paired this top with so many different things and adding it with this skirt gives off that cool 70's vibe. You can now find this style in dress-form, crop tops and all types of patterns (insert huge thumbs up here). And to give this look a bit of a modern touch I added a pair of pointed metallic loafers. This type of shoe amps up any basic outfit and makes it so much more interesting almost instantly. I recommend a pair of loafers as a staple piece in any closet due to their comfort and versatility. If at all, all 3 of these key pieces will give you an endless combination of looks to play with for any and all occasions.
