Preen's Criss-Crossed Cording for Spring 2009

Cutouts are hot in fashion, and the Preen Spring 2009 collection has their enticing openings all laced up. The jacket and dress backs are fabulous, with sizeable gaps eye-catchingly held together with criss-crossing cords in a matching shade.

The stunning blue suede pants are alluringly slit top to bottom and held together the entire length with lacing. Mini dresses, which are striking on their own, are detailed with a few intersecting strings.

I have to say, my crazy love of fringes may have met a match with this sexy lace-up trend. Stats for Giant Stitch Fashion Trending: Older & Chilly
