How to Wear Lace

Go for sassy, sexy, rock & roll, soft, seductive, feminine, sophisticated, or cute. How many trends can be so versatile? Try lace now and see for yourself.

Lace Blouse – Romantic
This is a more conservative way of wearing lace. If your style is not very daring, try a lace blouse in a caramel beige hue and pair it with leggings and golden sandals. For a morning look, try a white blouse with a trendy pair of flare jeans and peep toes.

Ruffle Dress – Cute
For girly girls at heart, a peach dress with dark lace woven in between ruffles creates a soft look. Wear flats with the dress to keep the look innocent and effortlessly sexy.

Lace Pencil Skirt – Sassy
An eye-catching look, wear it with a black pattern set on a beige background and complete the look with a black leather jacket and a black top. What about the shoes? Strappy black heels of course.

Leggings – Rock & Roll
An extreme take on lace, these are bound to get you some attention. The darker the top, the more rock star chic you will look. If you would like to tone it down, try a pastel top.

Ruffled Top – Feminine
Ruffles and lace; it even sounds so feminine. To add that extra oomph to a black suit, wear a ruffled lace top in a pop color under the blazer or jacket. These tops look great on trousers and camouflage any problem areas at the bust line.

Crocheted Lace Vest – Bohemian
This is a fresh look; a white crocheted lace vest with a maxi flowing skirt. It is perfect for the spring and summer breeze and a comfy look for those lazy mornings.

Full Lace Dress – Seductive
The degree of seductiveness of this look depends on the fit of the dress. The tighter and shorter the dress, the more va va voom it looks. Choose a wider dress in a burgundy color if you are seeking a more ladylike look.

Lace Shorts – Flirty
This is one of the over the top lace looks. If you've got great legs, why not show them off? For a fun party look, try wearing dark pantyhose underneath and a sequined top.

Lace Shift Dress – Sophisticated
Lace perfectly complements the simple, symmetrical style of the shift dress creating a classy look.

Take it from fabulous designer Prabal Gurung:"The lace corset-shape appliqué on this chic shift dress brings the perfect amount of sexy irony to a classic shape."

Mix and match lace for looks that match your mood every single day.
