Calling all gladiators! Warmer weather is finally here and it’s time to get a new pair of lace-up ghillies (or two) to go with that pedi you just got. Ghillies are flats or sandals that have those cute, goddess-like laces. This fun sandal style has been around for a while – and its here to stay. Whether you’re looking for chic flats or a sexy stiletto, there is a lace-up sandal made for you. They are the perfect spring accessory that will add that extra “somethin’somethin’” to your outfit.
Lace-up sandals are so versatile. They can add an air of femininity when sporting a grunge moto jacket or provide an edgy look when rocking a mini-skirt. The same pair of sandals can be paired with tailored, ankle grazed trousers when you head to the office, and later you can swap the pants for shorts for happy hour with the gals. Lace-up sandals and flats add the perfect amount of trendy and sass, no matter the occasion.
How to Style Your Lace-Up Ghillies
Lace-up ghillies come in a variety of styles. Whether you’re looking for a show to wear to the office, for date night or Sunday brunch, there is a great selection. With so many colors, materials and styles to choose from, you’re bound to find several pairs that will cap off your outfit perfectly.
Show off your fresh pedi with a simple, flat lace-up sandal that pairs perfectly with a romper or your favorite LBD. This is the perfect shoe for an every-day, but stylish look. Wear this style sandal with cut-off shorts, a flowy high-low top, and cap off the look with a San Diego hat. Voila! You have the ultimate Sunday brunch outfit.
