Old-school fashion trends seem to have wiggled their way into the modern styling circuit — be Regency era-inspired corsets, dreamy cottagecore house dresses or empire waistlines (we blame Bridgerton!). However, there is one particular vintage detail that seems to be getting a rather risque update — shoelace-style tie-ups.
While most retro trends have been re-imagined for the new-age market, tie-string pieces have only gotten more creative, with interesting drawstring accents and bold tie patterns.
Celebrities are reclaiming this classic corset-style Victorian lacing for their OOTDs and here’s how you can ace this trend:
Khushi Kapoor looks like a Y2K icon in this sunny co-ord with strategic cut-outs and string laces. The monochrome look is on-trend, the bare midriff adds a dash of oomph and the scoop neck offers room to accessorise.
Sometimes all you need is a cute top, colour pop denim and sneakers to feel like a cool kid and Ananya Panday gets it. The front tie-ups resemble shoelace strings and elevate the cool quotient of the look and pepper in some cheeky sultriness. The ribbed knitted top hugs her curves and the colour block sneakers add a touch of sportiness.
If DP is wearing it, can the rest of the world be far behind? This all-white structured corset has bustier-style tie-up details. The chunky gold shoulder dusters by Misho and kohl-rimmed eyes add so much drama!
The Shamshera actor picks a printed tie-up halter with a daring V-neckline. This is a great look for people with angular shoulders who love to accessorise!
Want to explore a grunge vibe? You need leather pants, of course! Halsey’s black leather pants with tie-up details down the sides is the easiest way to channel Gwen Stefani’s early 2000s style.
