Saintly or Sexy? The Duality of Lace Dresses
Lace has a reputation of being tricky to carry off. When done correctly, though, it’s the most feminine fabric you could wear. Depending on the kind of dress you choose, you could end up looking either angelic or sexy.
Here are some ways you can rock a lace dress:
White lace dress
You can pull off an elegant white lace dress without looking like ‘bridezilla.’ A white lace dress looks perfect on a summer day at a fancy lunch. A long hemline will give bohemian vibes while a shorter hemline will look laid-back and flirty. Some statement earrings would go perfectly with the look. Nude or white heels pair well with white lace. Stay away from black shoes; they look too stark against the softness of the dress.
Hint of lace
If a full lace look is too much for you, a hint of lace can work stunningly instead. This decorative fabric can be included in many designs. A lace piece or trim can give your outfit that oomph it needs. Our Rebecca nude off the shoulder lace jumpsuit is a perfect example. It shows how you can look feminine in pants and a little bit of lace. This outfit also shows off your collar bones, so don’t forget to get that glow on with some highlighter!
Hear us out on this one! Lace trousers have been quite a popular trend this year. Thicker laces are used to create such pieces. When worn with the right top, they make for a chic evening look.
A wide-leg pair of lace trousers looks quite flattering too. Elevate your look with some block heels. When wearing lace trousers, keep the top solid.
Dress it down
While the main role of a lace outfit is to make you look fab, sometimes you just have to tone it down. You can wear a lacey look during the day, too. Layer it up with a jacket and flat shoes to dress down the outfit.
Lace doesn’t have to be in boring white and nude hues. Invest in some boldly colored lace pieces; it’s a refreshing twist on a classic fabric. This electric blue Martina Lace Bardot Prom dress looks stunning. The breathtaking color will have heads turning. This color is also very flattering on all skin tones. Like the model, you can opt for a monochromatic look with shoes to match. Keep the earrings small and neck bare to fully celebrate the color of the dress.
