When lace was first revealed as a trend (this time around), some people thought it wouldn’t fly– lace is a delicate fabric usually used for bridal wear. But we’ve been seeing everything from lace embellished tees to lacey blazers, shorts and more — and we love it!
This delicate, fragile fabric has proven to be a pretty tough cookie. You can wear it to work and to play. The trick is to pair it with tailored items for work and edgier fabrics for play. Pick one lacey item for your outfit so it stands out (and so you don’t look all Desperately Seeking Susan!).
Check out these two outfits so you can see how lace can easily be worn for day and night:
The trick for wearing lace for work is to use the fabric sparingly—look for items like this dress that have lace details or embellishments, and pair it with sleek, chic picks.
