OK, what chick out there doesn't have some adorable flat black lace-up shoes, that are in DIRE need of a pick me up? No chick my friends, no chick! The easiest solution: add some bright white laces! I actually decided to go with some white ribbon rather than real shoe laces, to add that extra cuteness factor to my worn in shoes.
Here are my shoes PRE jazzing:
Very cute with the black ribbon, but if you look close up they are getting pretty old and drab:
Just pull those old laces out, and use them as a measuring tool for cutting your white ribbon. You may want to cut just a smidge longer than your old laces, because ribbon can fray pretty quickly when lacing through some teeny holes.
Lace up your shoes and VOILA! You've got jazzed up adorable shoes.
I love the contrast of the black and the bright white, but this is really a great way to easily change the look of any lace up shoe. Try adding some turquoise to some lace up white shoes, or some red ric-rac to some gray shoes. The possibilities are endless here.
