Well, ladies my summary of the biggest fall/winter 2010 fashion trends is about to come to an end. I thought I would go ahead and save one of the biggest trends for last: lace-up footwear! If you haven't noticed this trend, then you've been living under a fashion rock because lace-up boots are everywhere!!! They were featured prominently on the AW2010 runways as seen above at Reed Krakoff, Anna Sui, Peter Som, and Balmain and are widely available at shoe retailers right now. Personally, I'm impartial to this trend -- I don't really love it or hate it, but the nice thing about this trend is that it can double with another trend, so if you are liking the military trend, pick up a pair of military-inspired lace-up boots, or if you are liking the moto trend, pick up a pair of lace-up moto boots.
If you are liking the lace-up footwear trend, above are some lace-up boots than you might consider picking up: Aldo "Brissey" lace-up boot for $180 on www.aldoshoes.com; ASOS ATTACK lace-up platform bootie for $227.48 on www.asos.com; Akira "Ariel" lace-up bootie for $129.90 on www.shopakira.com; "Belle" lace-up bootie for $32.50 on www.urbanog.com; Nine West "Divara" lace-up bootie for $109 on www.piperlime.com; Steven by Steve Madden "Abee" lace-up boot for $249 on www.piperlime.com; Steve Madden "Evander" lace-up boot for $169.95 on www.stevemadden.com; RJ Girl "Amanda" lace-up boot for $150 on www.piperlime.com; Steve Madden "Cameronn" flat lace-up boot for $129.95 on www.stevemadden.com; Steve Madden "A-Rena" lace-up peeptoe bootie for $149.95 on www.stevemadden.com; Charles by Charles David "Krave" lace-up bootie for $190 on www.piperlime.com.
