All Tied Up: The Lace-Up Trend for Fall

Who knew knotty could be so nice? I’m talking about the ties, knots, and lace-up detailing that’s all over tops, dresses, shoes, and more this fall.

This little extra can do a lot for us 40-plus gals.  Lace-up necklines offer up a subtly sexy look. Strategically placed knots at or around the waist can be super slimming.

Here are a few examples of how you can tie one on.Cream Tie SLeeve Sweater Olive Pants

Wrist Ties that Wow

Sometimes the smallest details make the biggest impact. If you are looking for the easiest way to test out this trend, then a simple creamy wool sweater with pretty knit wrist ties is a good way to do it. Olive jeans add a shot of life to this cute outfit, and suede boots add texture and richness. Toss on a pendant necklace and cute bag in a color that pops, and you’re good to go!

Knot Your Typical Sweatshirt

Recently I told you about an unusual new trend called deconstructed classics – classic pieces that have been reimagined in the most unusual and creative ways. This sweatshirt could fit into this category! Who knew a softly gathered twist at the bust could take a sweatshirt from frumpy to fabulous? The twisted front turns this top into an empire-style sweatshirt that enhances your bust and gives off an artsy-sporty vibe.

Burgundy Floral Blouse Leather Pants

 

Tie One On

This gorgeous floral blouse is soft and feminine, and the long, trailing necktie only adds to the romance. I love the rich burgundy floral canvas; it’s such a beautiful change from black. Here I’ve styled this blouse for an evening with faux-leather leggings and blush accessories that pick up on the color in print. It would be equally lovely with a pair of skinny jeans.

Twist Tie Drama

Everyone’s favorite, the white shirt, just got a dramatic new update. A twist tie front whittles your waist and gives this wardrobe classic a fresh, modern feel. Wear this tunic with your favorite jeans and some glam accessories for a casually chic look that never disappoints.

Did you ever see my lace-up sweater that ties up the sides?
