This season it is all about unique tops. There are a few different trends that we have seen popping up including statement sleeves, off-the-shoulder necklines, super long sleeves, and lace-up tops. Lace-up tops are a trend that has been going strong since the fall, and it seems like it isn’t slowing down any time soon. We’re also seeing the crisscross detail appear of dresses and jumpsuits. Lace-up tops are interesting, a bit sexy but still effortless. They can be worn with almost anything in your wardrobe and look like you put a bit more effort than if you just put on a plain tee.
Check out 11 lace-up tops that will work easily into your wardrobe:
1. Fine-Knit Top With Lacing ($17.99, H&M)
This wallet-friendly white top is the perfect one to jump right into the trend. The color works with everything and the fine rib-knit fabric is very comfortable. Plus, the lacing detail is just enough. It’s low, but not scandalous.
2. Geometric Print Lace-Up Front T-Shirt ($30, River Island)
Here’s the top to wear to your upcoming festivals. It has the right boho vibe thanks to the deep red print. Then you have the must-have lace-up neckline.
3. In A Bind Lace-Up Top ($29, Nasty Gal)
Add some color into the mix with this fuchsia chiffon blouse. The thick silver grommets on the front contrast the floaty silhouette.
4. Lace-Up Crop Top ($22.90, Forever 21)
Looking for something a bit different? This pale pink top laces up on the side instead of the front. It’s a subtle way to show a bit of skin. Furthermore, you still have your beloved crop top silhouette.
5. Lace-Up Front Crop Top ($25.50, Missguided)
You might not initially think that there is a huge variety when it comes to lace-up tops, but there is. This brilliant white crop top has two diamond-shaped cutouts down the front with the lacing.
6. BlankNYC Lace Front Top ($88, Revolve Clothing)
Your favorite chambray shirt gets a bit of a sexy makeover thanks to the lace-up detail on the front of this shirt. The shirttail hem is another interesting touch.
7. Drawstring Neck Blouse ($59.99, Mango)
Here’s a work-appropriate option for you. The ecru blouse features patch pockets on the front and a diminutive lace-up detail with long ties. Wear it with a pencil skirt for work and wide-leg jeans when you’re off-duty.
8. Phoebe Brushed Check Lace-Up Top ($26, Boohoo)
There are a lot of lace-up tops in black or ivory, but this plaid one makes things a bit more interesting. The fabric is very comfy and the crisp blue and white color palette is perfect for spring. Complete the look with a pair of white pants.
9. Eyelet Side-Tie Crop ($75, Topshop)
Here’s another top with the lacing detail on the side. The baby blue knit sweater has chunky eyelets on the side. Resist the urge to walk around with your arms up. People will still notice the detail when you’re not posing.
10. Tripp Lace Up Corset Top ($54.50, Torrid)
This top takes inspiration from your lingerie drawer. However, note that it is a lot more comfortable than an actual corset. Its seamed bodice adds structure but it isn’t restrictive. The front features a crisscross ribbon detail, but you do not have to worry about lacing it up.
11. Club L Lattice Front Crisscross Top ($24, ASOS)
If you’re looking for a sexy option for the evening, try this camel-colored top. The long sleeves balance out the cropped length and the plunging lace-up neckline. It’s up to you if you want to coordinate it with a lace-up skirt.
