Aside from, you know, actually wearing them on your sneakers.

Looks like we're all tied up. Ten days ago, Katie Rosebrook tweeted a photo of herself sporting a choker fashioned from a sneaker shoelace ribboned around her neck, declaring in the caption that she'd "never gotten so many compliments." Since then, her post has amassed over 150,000 likes and almost 50,000 retweets.

Inspired by this genius (and not to mention low-cost) style hack, we've taken cues from the F/W 2016 runways and rounded up three clever ways to go knots.

EASY: Lace-up ballet flats

Starting to find your trusty ballet slippers boring? Twist a pair of laces around each ankle for instant DIY lace-up flats (or block-heeled pumps, a la Valentino).

MODERATE: Hair ribbon

At DKNY, strands of white satin were woven into the models' tiny braids. For bigger plaits, work your shoelace into a chic, loose fishtail braid and throw it over your shoulder.

HARD: V-neck weave

Let Proenza Schouler convince you that the only way to spruce up an old top is by threading a shoelace corset-style through its collar. You may need a pair of scissors to get the job done, but trust us, the result will be worth it.
