Rope details and tassels bring a free-spirited flair to your looks; perfect for daytime excursions and rendezvous. To spice up your ensemble, opt for a stacked heel lace-up sandal rather than a casual flat. Whatever look aiming for, the lace-up details are sure to take your outfit to the next level.

Remember, keep your pieces simple and let the metallics shine as a statement.
PLATFORMS: Get into the groove with the resurgence of 70s inspired fashion dressing trend-setters today.

Wear them for a dose of funky fun and understated sexiness. Platforms give you height, elongate the leg, and leave you towering above the rest when it comes to style.
