Style Theory: It started with Aquazzura, then Isabel Marant and now the high street is awash with the lace up, delicate shoe that flatters and looks fabulous with dresses and jeans alike...
|Aquazzura @Harvey Nichols £425|
The Aquazzura are really expensive so I am so glad to report I have found some stunning 'homages' on the high street for as little as £22.99.... perfect for a Spring wardrobe update...
First here are some ideas of how to style:
|These are the Isabel Marant shoes, the lace up style looks fabulous styled with an oversize sweater and ankle length skinny jeans, laid back perfection.|
|Wear with your boyfriend jeans and cargo to up the style on a casual look.|
|Stunning with black distressed jeans.|
|Great with cut off shorts and a tee for holiday chic.|
|Go for Parisian look with a black/navy blazer and skinny jeans.|
|A subtle and stylish look with all black|
|The lovely Alex from The Frugality wears her Next shoes with a beautiful maxi dress for a wedding, the perfect dress up/dress down shoes.|
As you can see these are such useful, elegant shoes that go with such a range of outfits and are completely easy to walk in..perfect..
So here are the best, affordable options on the high street, starting with the more expensive down to super reasonable. I have chosen all flat version of these shoes as I find them easier to walk in and therefore get more wear out of them. These will look fab in the Spring with a pair of skinny black or blue jeans and a sweater and in the summer wear with denim cut off jean shorts and a white boho top with black/white embroidery detail and a black or leopard print bag.
|Russell and Bromley Logo Lace Shoes £255|
|Free People Jeffrey Campbell Shay Lace Up £100|
|Boden Lille Lace-up Point Shoes £89|
|Office Vibrant Multi Strap Shoes £55|
|Next Black Ghille Point Shoes £45|
A word of caution with these shoes, they are narrow so better on narrow feet due to the lack of support on the outside. If you have wider feet the New Look or Office will be a better, reasonable option.
|New Look Lace Up Point Shoes £22.99|
Such a useful little pair of shoes, if you can try on a few different styles to check which ones flatter and fit you the best, I guarantee if you find a really comfortable pair you will wear them all the time.

I have worn mine for nights out, days shopping and meetings and they are really comfortable, looking forward to the weather warming up so my feet do not freeze as much though!
Do you have these shoes, are you into the lace up look? As always I would love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Frances xx
