Not something that I overly liked when they first came (back) around through winter. But then social media convinced me otherwise, I would see them cropping up in magazines, on blogs and Instagram and I started thinking that it was quite a nice style, how's that for social media conditioning.. I have to admit I am occasionally prone to falling prey to a new must-have style; marketing at its best and I guess that makes me an advertisers dream, but hey, fashion is my vice and i only *occasionally* fall prey to passing trends.
With the lace-up tops I liked the idea that they add a little interest to the plain black top, which is something i am gravitating towards more and more of late.
Plus its perfect for spring as in chillier weather my chest would get cold (ha, old lady alert).
I picked this one up in Primark for a mere £8.00. I've gone from investment pieces to flyby fashion pieces all in a week. Sometimes you've just got to throw £8.00 to the wind and see how it falls. Thankfully with it being so super cheap i was happy to give it a go. And actually i really like the style. It was super easy and comfy to wear (accept the dangly bits of the ties kept getting in the way when i bent down) and a nice addition to my basics collection which I'm always happy to add to.
My wardrobe is now mostly lots of basics with some key colours thrown in.
Speaking of key colours, I've established i am pretty much addicted to Khaki and Red as a couple; They just marry so nicely together i can't keep the two apart.
