With their roots in the corsets of yesteryear, laces can be racy little numbers. Thin silky ribbons make for cute and girly laces on floaty tops and dresses while heavier thongs are definitely sexy when it comes to gladiator sandals, shoes and boots. A lace up t shirt or sweater has a classy appeal, especially with neat tailored pants and heels while a billowy cotton lace up top teamed with denim shorts is one of the sweetest sights of summer. We love to browse through Tumblr for a million ideas on how to adapt this lovely look to our personal style. So pull in those laces and get our look tied up.
