Am I too late to jump on the lace up sweater trend? Oh well. When this trend first appeared on the fashion scene, I was highly skeptical. See how I tried out the trend and read my thoughts below!
I picked up this sweater from Abercrombie & Fitch a while ago, but I’m just now taking it out for a spin. I have to say that I don’t hate it. The sweater is soft and cozy, perfect for cold weather. The grommets and lace up detail add a subtle hint of interest that doesn’t overpower the outfit as a whole.
My original fear in wearing this kind of top was that the laces would loosen throughout the day and accidentally expose cleavage. It does happen if I don’t keep an eye on the laces, but I’ve found that I fiddle with the strings so much during the day that I unintentionally tighten them. So the jury is still out on that problem.
Overall, the lace up trend is a fun new spin on v-neck sweaters. Just as long as there aren’t any wardrobe malfunctions!
