The Easiest Way To Upgrade Your Look Is In The Laces

3 Tips to ace your lace game.

Looking to switch up your shoe game? It’s as easy as replacing your laces. Swapping brown or black laces for a pair of coloured ones will instantly add some personality to your kicks, and make you stand out in a crowd (for all the right reasons).

Here are three tricks to remember when lacing up:

1. All shoes aren’t treated equal

The type of shoe is key. Contrasting laces works best on casual shoes – think boots, sneakers or even boat shoes for when you’re on a casual outing or on weekends. If you’re working in a creative office environment or want to spice up date night, smarter shapes such as brogues or Derbies are your go-to styles.

2. Not all shades of grey

Another factor to consider is the tone and shade of the laces. For summer, opt for bolder colours and textures and for winter keep things calm with muted hues and simple colours. Olive, navy or grey will do the trick.

3. Bring out the colour 

Ideally, you want to match the colour of your shoelaces to a similar colour in your outfit. Match your strings to something in your socks or a colour in your shirt, pocket square or tie, for example. This will help simplify things for you, as well as enhance your look without stealing the show.
