What To Wear With A Lace Dress

We’re pretty pumped to see summer’s lace trend gain momentum for fall in new and creative ways. Great for striking that magical balance between innocent girly girl and sultry temptress, much to our chagrin, the fabric formerly got a bad rep as a result of over-exposure via early 90s pop stars.  Now it’s back (and better than ever).  Wearing lace is definitely a delicate matter, which is why we’ve put together a useful guide for all your lace-buying needs.

The key with lace is finding equilibrium – dress down a sexy dress with a pair of stomach-flattening solid black tights and instead of heels, slip on some knee-high suede boots. To offset the ultra-feminine fabric you’ve got on, we recommend an oversized boyfriend blazer. As for accessories, keep it simple and let your lace do the talking – try a black bag with a long chain strap, but leave the jewelry at home ladies.
