Runway Trend in Real Life: Lace Up Flats – Vine Vera Reviews

Lace Up Flats

Fashion designers and consumers alike anxiously await fashion shows with each coming season’s approach, just begging for the next look at the next big thing in clothing. Style has inspired many real life trends in which people have taken and made their own, adding their own ideas and flair. Vine Vera Skincare brings you one of the real life trends found on runways this season – lace up flats. With the many different styles and colors abounding, and with spring finally here, now is the time to update your closet with some of the newest must have shoes for spring.

Ballerina Lace Up Flats
Ballerina lace up flats have become increasingly popular over the past decade, and seem to be here to stay – at least for a while. They look feminine, elegant, and dramatic paired with a frilly skirt, dress, or even a pair of sailor shorts. The gorgeous chiffon-like ribbons used to lace the shoes up the leg look absolutely fantastic and classy. Whatever you choose to pair them with, it’s best to stick with basic colors in ballet flats, such as light pink, tan, or black, which not only looks the most natural – but you can wear them with more outfits and get more use out of them as well. 

Sandal Lace Up Flats
Sandal lace up flats are all the rage right now. Sandals have always been a popular spring and summer staple, but these take the typical pretty sandals of the warmer months, and turn them into something sexy and spectacular. Generally, there is a shoelace like material in which to tie sandal lace up flats with – but you may find a ribbon of some sort with this style. With so many colors and styles to choose from, these sandals can tie an outfit together (literally) even without accessories. They look great with anything, from shorts, dresses, capris, rompers, or skirts.

Ankle Tie Flats
This style can be quite similar to the sandal lace up flat look – but the ankle tie flats are different in that they are usually based off of other styles such as oxfords, and sometimes sandals, but don’t tie up past the ankle. The ankle tie flats seem to pair very well with pants of any style due to the low tying look, and there are ample styles to choose from. VineVera loves the look of ankle tie flats in stiletto form, and we think these types of flats are one of our favorites for their versatility.

Moccasin Lace Up Flats
Moccasin lace up flats take these traditional Native American styled shoes to a whole new level. You can find them in traditional tan and brown colors with suede or leather ties, or even in more fashionable color schemes with varying lace up materials. This is one of the trendiest looks for the spring and summer 2015 season. Find them with or without tassles, and with or without beads. This style is truly based on personal preference.

These are just a few of the lace up flat styles we at Vine Vera are in love with, and we hope to have shed some light on this hot off the runway trend so that you can implement the style into your wardrobe update for spring.

Beauty Trend Taking Over the Runways – Vine Vera Reviews

Fashion model applies makeup as she prepared for the runway .

There once was a day when girls stood for hours in the mirror with cover-up trying to hide their freckles from the world like blemishes. They were the root of name calling in grade school, and the opposite of the highly desired smooth completion look. There have been a lot of forums in the past about how to remove your freckles, how to cover up your freckles, and how to avoid getting more (stay away from the sunshine ladies). But, thankfully for those with freckles, those days have come to an end. Freckles have not only been embraced, they are now being imitated. Freckles have been popping up all over the runways, and surprisingly not all of these freckles are natural. Though freckles have gone in and out of style in the past, this latest trend of freckles, and faux freckles, seems to be here for the long haul. Vine Vera reviews this exciting beauty trend that is taking over the runways.

Many actresses have been known for embracing their freckles, such as Rachel Bilson and Lucy Liu. Though some have gotten flak for it, they are not being held as the starters of a trend that is sweeping the nation. As the trend has increased in popularity, more and more models, such as Binx Walton, Natalie Westling and Magdalena Jasek, have been seen embracing their natural spots as well. One of the main areas of inspiration for this trend can be found on Paul Smith’s catwalk, where make-up artist Petros Petrohilos added fake freckles to the models for a fresh and young look. By adding freckles on top of a face that already has foundation applied, the illusion of fresh, young, naturally good skin is given. The freckles give the impression that no foundation is being worn.

There are many ways to achieve this faux-freckled look. By using either eye pencils or eyebrow markers the freckles are created using a variety of colours and creating them in a variety of sizes. Topshop has even released a freckle pencil, a true indicator that this trend is officially hitting the mainstream. The key is to place the freckles on areas where the sun would naturally hit and to not focus on perfection. Freckles come in all shapes and sizes, and even overlap on a persons face naturally, so you want to use some freedom in their application. Some searches will even bring you information on the different freckles placement recommendations for each face shape.

From models on the runway to girls in their bathrooms, everyone is trying out this new trend. Another artist known for adding faux freckles to his models in his spring/summer 2015 runway show is Adam Selman. His team added fake freckles in an attempt to create a healthy, natural and youthful look, and the results are gorgeous. Whether you are looking to add a little change in your day to day make-up look, or are ready to let your natural skin shine through, this is a trend that we can get on board with.
