A beige cable sweater and dark green wide leg pants are a good combination to have in your wardrobe. A pair of lace-ups will introduce a classy aesthetic to the outfit.
You'll be surprised at how very easy it is to get dressed this way. Just a black fur coat and grey houndstooth dress pants. Lace-ups integrate brilliantly within a ton of getups.
If the setting permits off-duty style, pair a brown houndstooth blazer with a tan embroidered chiffon shirtdress. You could perhaps get a little creative in the shoe department and class up this look with lace-ups.
This combo of a tan suede blazer and black dress pants is a mix between elegant and relaxed. A pair of lace-ups serves as the glue that pulls this look together.
Go for something functional yet current with a black blazer and navy jeans. If you want to immediately spruce up your ensemble with a pair of shoes, add lace-ups to this getup.
