Tie One On: Fall’s Lace-Up Trend

I have to give credit where credit is due. Carol pointed out the lace-up trend this fall. I had not noticed women wearing clothes that lace up like sneakers and except for a couple of cute sweaters, this may be a trend I pass on this season. It’s not my personal fave, but you might adore it

You may be thinking “Oh no, not that look…I don’t want to go there again.” But you don’t have to, because this time around (just as it usually is with fashion) the look is much different
