You Can Wear Lace-Up Sandals With Pants — Here's How

marlien_7formankind_18(1)
There's something seriously sexy about lace-up sandals. They wind up your ankle, show some extra skin (albeit on your feet), and are the shoes for a hot resort getaway. While lace-ups' obvious pairing is a flirty dress, you can wear them outside of date night, too, like I do here.
I’m rotating my vintage YSL lace-ups into my everyday mix by tempering them with more casual pieces, like jeans and a slouchy, relaxed sweater, which I can easily swap for a billowy blouse or white T-shirt when the weather permits. Wearing a monochromatic white ensemble keeps all eyes on the sandals.
And, if I do want to dress things up for a night out, then you can expect to see me wearing these sandals with the aforementioned flirty (but not body-hugging!) dress or swishy skirt, or turn it up still another notch with full leg-climbing heels. Although my YSL's are a rare find, you can check out some of my currently-shoppable favorites (from affordable to investment grade) here on my blog, LE CATCH.
