When we slip on a lace dress we instantly feel a little more glamorous with a hint of old Hollywood elegance. Transforming this textile from straight cocktail attire to regular daily wear is easy to do so we can enjoy the look of lace for any occasion. Let these lace outfits inspire your lighter summer style!
1. Lined with Fringe
Give the delicacy of lace a sense of rebellion with a fringe edge like this “Fringe Fest” Lace Crochet Top from my Colleen Lopez line to update this traditional style. Wearing a dark colored undershirt will also help the lace to pop in the design and make the fine details stand out even more. This is perfect for a pair of jeans and easy lounging.
2. A Change of Hue
Everyone expects lace in white so surprise! you have to try styling it in a bold, tropical color like this “A Real Romantic” Lace Top with Tank. Done in a bright shade of blue this lace top keeps its refinery without seeming matronly in the least. The sleeveless style is just a little bit sexy and revealing while still feeling covered up.
3. Printed In Pattern
An all lace outfit can be tricky, too much and it can start to feel bridal. A smart way to wear all lace is by working it into a pattern. This Sleeveless Body-Con Dress uses a black and white zig zag pattern of lace to delight the eye with all of its lovely details. Adding a chunky sandal like the “Lisinda” Leather Sandal by Isola would give this outfit some grounding and attitude to really make a statement.
4. Done In Detail
Just a little wisp of lace can turn a simple pair of trousers into an elegant staple in your wardrobe. By adding a lace lining to the pockets of this Harem Pant from Timeless by Naeem Khan this mens-wear style gets back a little flourish of femininity. It’s a great play on the classic black and white tuxedo look.
5. Layered In It
If you’re short on time and need to give your outfit a fast upgrade look for a lace cover up. Whether it’s paired with your favorite dark denim shorts or a dress for work a jacket like this Lace Shrug by Brittny Gastineau will give your outfit a boost of class and will look so pretty while doing so.
