There was a time when my closet was filled with lace dresses, tops, skirts and the works. And then the fashion industry changed its mind and I was left heartbroken with a closet full of things I could not wear. Lace was sidelined like neon clothing items and I wasn't excited about it. No remorse for neon though, seriously, what's their deal?
Lace, on the other hand, has a history of cool, even though it has a reputation for being tricky. It's sheer, for one. So how do you wear it if you don't fancy going sans bra and baring it all? Follow this guide for styling all the excess lace items that you have in your closet, ranging from the vintage to pop culture-inspired ideas.
1. Top It Up With Lace
Lace is a versatile piece of clothing and it doesn't always have to be plain and white. A lacey top with pants or a midi skirt is always a good option if you plan to dress the same from AM to PM. The sneaky pops of skin make it look elegant and gives you an option to be out there while not baring it all.
If you're not a fan of the lace trend but aren't ready to give up trying yet, try wearing a lace trim instead of going overboard. A sneak peek of lace will add an edge to your look and make you look sassy without even trying.
If you may know, there are multiple kinds of laces; the design one and the plain one (not many options in here). Combine both in your outfit and make heads turn! This one might be a little challenging but it's worth a shot if you're in for experimenting.
The stilettoes and socks trend took a turn in 2015 when Dolce&Gabbana launched it on the ramp. The trend fire was fueled by multiple celebrities and we're still adding to it. Ditching the vanilla socks for a lacey update? Why not! There might be an issue if you feel an itch in these but we're all for them. Fashion isn't always comfortable, sis!
This fabric has a way of looking dressy even when you don't put in an effort to style it. Imagine dawning a lace dress with a pop coloured lipstick and a statement ring. Voilà and ooh-la-la, you're ready to party mademoiselle! That was easy, wasn't it?
