Trend Alert: Liberated Lacing

A more edgy take on a familiar detail!

The trend for cut-outs and deconstruction has become more and more prominent across the most fashionable brands and influencers over the past seasons. Now, the mere layering of cut-outs and thin straps is upgraded and evolves to new forms of lacing.
Tie-front tops and cardigans are this year’s must-try. Though backless blouses were having a moment in recent years, the opening seems to have migrated upfront.
For the next summer, the detail will be constructing the entire garment or is incorporated as a highlight on necklines, sides or sleeves. The more strappy and revealing, the more edgy and niche. However, simple adaptions in form of lace closures etc. are easily applicable on a more commercial level. Instagram is showing women wearing easy dressing but pretty iconic blouses that he just threw on, effortless and tied at the front. Retro factor aside, tie-front tops also offer the opportunity to experiment with outfit combinations, giving the chance to play with summer layering.
Be sure to add a sense of edgy sexiness to your collections and spice up the staples with some revealing laced-up elements.
