Tina recently issued a trend alert on white lace, but the delicate fabric shouldn’t be reserved solely for summer dresses and jumpsuits. The most fun we can have with it is actually on footwear! After all, it’s a breathable material, and what do we need that on more than shoes?
Stuart Weitzman Meshuga Espadrille Flat: For a more traditional espadrille – at a more Frugal Snob-friendly price – Weitzman’s leather-trimmed flats more than fit the bill. At Nordstrom for $200.98 (from $335).
Manolo Blahnik BB Metallic Lace Pointed-Toe Pump: Ladylike lace on a feminine pump just makes sense. This is the shoe you’ll want for every upcoming dinner party and special celebration (it’s June, and you know what that means!). At Neiman Marcus for $486 (from $695).
Valentino Lace Espadrilles: Valentino designs some of my favorite espadrilles (and I’m a bit of a connoisseur). With the light pink lace and ballerina-style ankle wrapping, these are like ballet shoes for the beach. On NET-A-PORTER for $575.
Superga Lace Sneakers: Lace on a pair of kicks is less expected. Wear these with a flirty mini dress or skirt to stay comfy without getting too casual. On Shopbop for $99.
