How To Wear Lace Clothing
You can always be glam, dainty or even casual with lace. Here are some style tips on how to wear lace clothing.
Lace is such a fantastic fabric and it's really easy for anyone to wear in so many different ways. You can keep it casual or take it into work wear or really glam for evening kind of Chicago-esque feel to it. Now, this is a really classic easy lace skirt to wear.
This is the tulip shape but you can also get lace pencil skirts. When you're wearing a lace skirt, it's really important not to mix too much lace on the top because it's really good to have it as your focal point. So for example with a skirt, take into a really simple blouse or t-shirt and just keep everything really simple but layer your accessories.
Maybe go into something more like pearls, really exotic necklaces, just to bring it much more exciting. A really good way of making a lace skirt feel a little bit more exotic is to kind of give it a gothic feel. You can add in different textures, fur, leather and it makes it much more exotic and gothic.
Another really easy way to wear lace is a dress. There are so many dresses on the high street at the moment. A really simple see-through lace dress can be considered a casual dress.
It looks a little bit glam but actually, with a little dress underneath, it kind of covers your modesty. But do it with a coloured tight and a slouchy boot or even a black tight and then add a little bit of colour in the waist. You can add a really nice chunky knit over the top, layer underneath with a long sleeved colored t-shirt for a day look.
If the quality of the lace isn't fantastic, you really need to make the lace work in your casual wardrobe. When the lace is really good quality, it works better for evening wear. Also, don't be afraid of using white lace or creams.
Pop it with black accessories or get a little bit of beige in there as well or camel tones. A fine quality lace can be dressed up or down. So if you're dressing it down, pop on some chunky knits, go for slouchy boot, but if you're dressing it up, go for a really fantastic black tight and a round-toe shoe.
So during the day, go for a slouchy boot and a chunky knit over the top but if you're taking it into the evening which this works really well for, go for a black tight and a round-toe shoe. Obviously, it's got to be killer heels because it's evening and then bring in the beiges and soft tones for your accessories. Layer up some pearls or some sparkle on the neckline.
Go for maybe a beige option for your clutch or your handbag. But white and cream laces mix with your black, so it's a really dramatic colour contrast. Also, we've got this really great classic lace dress which is perfect for evening.
This is the kind of one that makes you feel like in a Chicago-esque musical. So, add a classic red belt. Go for the skinny option because it's much more of a trend belt.
It's nice and high necked but it's really short. If you're going for a low neck, go longer on the length. If you're going for a high neck, you can take your length up much more.
Go for a real short dress and that really kind of brings everything together. Also, if you're going to go for a sheer lace or on the whole body, make sure you got a cami underneath it or you just go for sheer lace on the sleeve which is much more elegant and really sophisticated. Then, another way of kind of dressing into your evening wardrobe is to go for a top that has lace detailing so it doesn't have to be all lace.
This is kind of a little waist coat top, really fab, cinches your body in, makes your bust look amazing, but at the back, it's got this really nice panel of lace. It's just finding those tops that have that intricate element in them and that would make that lace really stand out and take up to the next level. But remember, when you're wearing your lace, go for good quality lace, go for slightly thicker lace because it will last longer but also make sure that you really finish off your look.
Enjoy wearing your lace clothing and feel very gothic and Chicago
