Tips & Tricks: Cool Laces

Sneakers are making a huge comeback. They are e.v.e.r.y.w.h.e.r.e.  Adios to the days when they were only for runners and athletic women, they’re now a part of every girl’s wardrobe.

There’s another big trend that you might’ve noticed: the return of the 90′s. Chokers, yin & yang, blue hair, etc. See where I’m heading?

Sneakers + 90′s = ?

The answer: Creepers!

These creeper sneakers have been around for a few months already and are the perfect pair, flowery, white and spring friendly. The only thing is, maybe you find the laces a little… matchy? Don’t make a mistake, I’m a huge fan of matchy-matchy outfits, but maybe you’re not. Or maybe your white laces will eventually get a little dirty and you’ll need to switch them up. It happens, no shame.

What to do, then? Laces switch up! Here are a few ideas you might wanna try, depending on your level of funkiness and/or matchyness.

  1. Stay white and fresh. Who cares? I don’t.
  2. Wear one white lace and one lace of another colour. Old classic, always works.
  3. Try to lace up your laces a different way, or two different ways
  4. No laces. No worries. Try it when you’re chilling in a park. It’s perfect.

Have you guys tried anything else with your laces? Friendship bracelets? Neon colours? Don’t be afraid, share, share, share!
