Lace up shoes may seem a bit complicated for the brain-melting heat of the summer, but these ones are easy and breezy. While these modern-day shoes are a far cry from the lace-up brogues you jammed your feet into when you were little, they still have a great vintage feel that adds interest to a pair of jeans or trousers. These celebs have mastered the ability to balance the Victorian influence with comfortable and chic styling.
Rihanna and Jeffrey Campbell Edea Wedge Sneaker
Taking risks in fashion is a big part of defining style. Rihanna is a great example of being fearless in fashion even though here she’s in a laid-back pair of jeans, pullover sweatshirt and black sneakers. A great way to liven up an outfit is to add a bit of texture and leather is the perfect addition to any plain outfit. Jeffrey Campbell is a brand that embodies fearless fashion. The Edea Wedge Sneaker pairs both the fashion forward hidden wedge and the athletic look of a lace up sneaker.
Gwen Stefani and Diane von Furstenberg Guardian Taupe Bootie
With the new No Doubt album coming out Gwen Stefani is in the limelight now more than ever. Her ability to push the boundaries of fashion is masqueraded here with a houndstooth blazer, striped pants, and taupe booties with a great lace up tassel detail. Her pedicured toes peep out the front and gives these a summary look. Diane von Furstenberg and her brand have solidified their spot at the top of the pedestal of American womenswear. The Guardian Taupe Bootie is a great way to balance the tougher look up a bootie with the charming detail of crisscrossed lace up.
Megan Fox and MICHAEL Michael Kors Jada Wedge Ankle Boot
It’s hard not to be envious of Megan Fox’s style. Her natural sexiness is brought out by her ability to pair her chic boho look with badass details. Her loose knit top and folded hem shorts paired with knee socks and chunky wedge lace up booties make this look both fashionable and inspiring. MICHAEL Michael Kors is a brand that is easily accessible by any woman and can bridge the gap between high fashion and commercial. The Jada Wedge Ankle Boot is cool alternative to an ankle boot with its suede material and a serious high-rise wedge heel.
