Steal vs. Splurge: Lace-Up Looks

Ever since I discovered Equipment’s “Knox” blouse on a few bloggers’ Instagrams, I’ve been loving lace-up tops and dresses. It’s like a throwback to the corset, minus the inability to breathe. But there’s a fine line when it comes to choosing the right type–I’ll pass on the skin-tight lace-up body suits we’re seeing everywhere. I’m thinking more along the lines of a roomy, silky blouse with laces as a dreamy accent. Lucky for us, Urban Outfitters, Free People and Express offer a few affordable options, but if you’re looking to splurge, the iterations are endless. Here, four steals and four splurges for romantic lace-up looks.
