As many Fashionistas know, lace is a tricky fabric. Some Fashionistas may veer away from lace fearing that it might appear too risque. However, there is a way to be lacy without being too racy.
When I was shopping in SoHo last sunny New York weekend I came across this feminine Fashionista wearing this pretty ivory lace dress. The garment was a fit and flare dress that was perfectly flattering on her petite shape. The leather bow sandals added an extra feminine punch to this dainty look.
This lovely lace trend has made an appearance on several runways during the resort 2013 season. J. Mendel has several beautiful and feminine lacy ready-to-wear options. Lace in pretty pastel tones is perfect for a daytime affair while black lace may be better suited for a night on the town.
You can create your own lace look in many variations. Skirts, dresses, ballet flats and even tops would be perfect for lacy ensembles. Express has a variety of great lacy tops in different colors that would be perfect for a look that could go from day to night. You could simply wear a lacy top to work under a blazer and take it off after 5 PM for a feminine date night outfit.
A lacey dress, in my opinion, is a must-have in any summer wardrobe. alice + olivia carries several white lacy playful dresses suitable for various summer daytime occasions. When you’re in a crunch for time, a white lace dress is always a fabulous option.
So be a lady this summer and don some lacy attire. Whether you are on your way to the mall or on your way to work, lace is an easy never-fail option. Lace is no longer a fabric associated with the risque. It’s one for ladylike Fashionistas like you and me.
