Don’t get your lace up heels in a twist; PDHQ have been hearing your tweets and wanna make sure our baes know the best ways to style the tied up trend. Get ready to make notes.

How to Style Lace Up Heels

If you’re anything like us, you just had to get a pair of our Vera heels. But now your peachy box has arrived, you’re not too sure how to style ’em up. We’ve been hearing on Twitter that some of our PD baes aren’t too sure on how to style up their babein’ new pairs, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to make sure you’ve got a go-to guide on how to style up your fave new lace up heels. Mission: accepted.

These Barbie beauts are a bestseller for a reason. Of course, Stella lace up heels will always look bangin’ with a a plunge neck, wrap maxi dress, but how about stylin’ it casj with faded black skinny jeans. Just make sure you lace ’em low.

The Diya flatform sandals in black were made for walkin’, so we’re not gonna get in their way. Made for Summer, and therefore bare legs, these flatform lace ups look best with a shorter hem and plenty of sass.
