So many of this year’s trends are tied to the overarching retro aesthetic that has ruled the runways, and the proliferation of lace up details is just another example. With an effect that is a strange marriage of hippie and sexy, lace up dresses and tops have a distinctly throwback feel. I’ve been keeping an eye out for the right piece, and this marled grey skater dress from Boohoo’s plus line got me to take the plunge (literally and figuratively, in this case).
The plunge dipped below my lowest cut bra, in this case, so I paired it with a neutral cami so it wouldn’t break up the visual effect of the lacing. With black tights and my favorite Matt Bernson booties, I was ready for the cool weekend temps. My Moonsong cuff by Jenny Bird was the perfect finishing touch – another little reference to the hippie aesthetic, without being too much. I kept this piece from my latest Rocksbox.
