Three ways to wear a lace dress
While lace dresses are especially popular this season, it would be downright irresponsible for us to dismiss them as just a trend. In a neutral color, a lace dress is an elegant, timeless piece that you can wear for just about any occasion. If you’ve been thinking about getting one, don’t be afraid to splurge on a version you love – again, you’ll be wearing them long after this season passes! We especially love white lace dresses that hit a few inches above the knee for their versatility. Here are just a few ways to style this particular incarnation of the lace dress:
Dressed down for daytime
If you think a lace dress and going about a casual day just don’t mix, give it a try anyway – you just might be surprised! Try pairing your dress with black footless leggings. Unlike tights, you can wear footless leggings with a pair of flat strappy sandals. Go for cropped leggings, which are perfect for toning down an above-the-knee dress for an effortlessly casual look. Adding a splash of color will also dress down an outfit with a black-and-white color palette: Try throwing on a lightweight cardi or scarf in a summery color, such as a bright coral or robin’s egg blue.
Dressed up for a glam ensemble
Dressing up this wardrobe staple is just as easy. Try pairing your dress with black suede platform pumps and a fun clutch – go for one that will add a pop of color to your outfit or a neutral-colored one with eye-catching embellishments. To complete the look, add a strand of pearls to keep it simple, or kick up the drama by opting for a multi-strand pearl necklace instead.
Remixed for an edgier nighttime outfit
Depending on the occasion, you might want a nighttime outfit with a little more of an edge. In that case, try wearing peep-toe bootie pumps and a cropped moto jacket. Go for black leather versions of both to add balance to the feminine, dainty look of lace. Have fun with statement jewelry, such as a gold cuff or a bold necklace.
