As far as footwear evolutions go, lace-up heels are a style which has dominated the runway in recent years. A hybrid of brogues and classic high heels, these contemporary designs fuse disparate elements of casual chic with glamorous finesse to produce a shoe that can work for a variety of occasions. From leather lace-ups with tonal stitching and chunky heeled styles in striking prints to glitzy high-heeled varieties and demure options with pretty bow details, lace-ups heels can channel anything from retro charm to cutting-edge dynamism. Worn to the office as an update to a traditional heel, or teamed with a cocktail dress for a touch of modern sophistication, this season's collection of lace-up heels puts a fresh spin on traditional looks.
Modernise your footwear in runway-friendly style with lace-up heels
Favoured by celebrities across the globe, the vintage-inspired lace-up high heel is a great way to add interest to an outfit. Team a pair of tan lace-up heels with a floral summer dress, a pastel pleated skirt or a pair of denim shorts for an instant hit of catwalk appeal. Go down the colour-blocking route with a pair of lace-up heels in neon pink, vibrant lemon or mint green and wear with dark denims or a nude jersey dress. Choose low-heeled options in shades of olive, black or brown for a versatile pair of work shoes that will refresh any ensemble, or pick embellishments like bows, floral decals and intricate motifs for more of a statement look.
