Anytime a dress code allows, lace-up sandals will definitely be our first choice. It’s the silhouette of how the laces go up and around the ankles is what wins us over everytime,  nevermind the fact that our toes are out for the world to see. Then again, it’s not like a trip to these nail parlours can’t fix the problem. While lace-up sandals are also dubbed as a summer essential, we think it can be worn all year round.

But here comes the fun part: how to we amp up the style factor of these shoes? Bottega Veneta has come up with a super stylish solution. The hint lies in the Italian luxury brand’s Resort 2020 collection.

The brand tied its lace-up sandals around baggy trousers, making it an instant micro-trend that many took notice of right after its release. Proof is on Instagram and the streets, where people are seen pulling off the style statement with their own trouser or denim jeans. It’s an entirely new look not just meant for summer. Now, you can keep warm with long pants while keeping it light and airy with your footwear.

By doing this method, it may also help with that one tiny problem that usually comes with lace-up sandals. Sometimes (or truthfully, most of the time), these laces tend to come undone or slide to the bottom as soon as we start walking. It’s frustrating — we get it. This lace-up trend may actually solve that problem.

It’s time to try out the style statement for yourself. Here are five lace-up sandals that you can get to try out this new micro-trend.
