A seasoned, classic trend, lace is never absent from the runway throughout the year. There´s never a shortage of style ideas on how to wear it whether it´s to transition from winter to spring with lace, or to look sweet and modern in a lace.
However, there´s a catch, most of these how-to-wear ideas has the same bottom line – girly element. But today, let´s deviate from the femininity of lace and let´s look at the different ways to inject fierceness into it. You can look edgy in a lace while still maintaining class and glamor in these ten easy ways.
1. Lace Skirt with Moto Jacket
Jana Skirt, $48.00
You know that you can look romantic in a lace pencil skirt, right? But did you know that you can also look biker fierce in one? Try this black (moderately) stretchy pencil skirt, featuring wide semi sheer lace panel, with a distress tee then throw over a black moto jacket. The result is definitely strong. Finish it up with black platforms or flat ankle boots.
2. Lace Top with Leather Bottom
Eve Crochet Tank, $48.00
Leather pants are a great pick-me-up during cold seasons when you´re looking for something sexy but warm. In summer, their best alternative is leather shorts. Go for a pair of black leather shorts to wear with a crochet white and black ankle boots.
3. Lace Socks
Helen Ankle Socks $8.00, Lana Lace Thigh High Socks $18.00
When I was in my middle twenties, I fancied lace ankle socks. I wore them with pumps or strappy high heel sandals and then I´d throw long, flowy scarf on my neck. My style was one of the hottest gossips among the women in my community, they called it weird. But not long thereafter, these women started throwing long flowy scarves on their neck too, although none of them was able to brave the lace socks.
If you want to double up the bravery, try these black lace thigh high socks. Younger women may have more heart to rock these, but this style isn’t about age, it´s about heart. Of course, you need to be confident with your bod to wear it.
4. White Crochet Cape Blazer
Elliatt Cape Blazer – White Crochet, $158.00
Cape is probably not a key item for anyone´s wardrobe but it´s essential for statement making ensembles in between seasons. We´ve seen cape gaining more and more popularity but we´ve not seen much of a cover-up that could work as a cape for cool days and as a sleeveless vest for warm days. Try this amazing crochet blazer with long-line draped lace cape.
5. Front Slit Lace Skirt
Bud Stud Skirt, $78.00
If you love adding unique pieces to your wardrobe, then you´d love to have this unique knee length lace skirt which boosts a tapered silhouette, front slit, binding detail, and burgundy floral crochet overlay with a hot pink layer underneath. It´s not always that you´ll find such a gorgeous style.
Because I´m into classy looks, I suggest partnering this skirt with a clean white tee, a blush button down shirt, or a black blouse.
6. Ivory Lace Pants
Cherysse Pants, $68.00
For a while smoking slippers were a huge trend. This season, we´re talking about a new smoking piece – super romantic ivory lace pants which leave a trail of smoke when you ramp up street. Wear it with other soft shades for your top and shoes, to keep its classiness intact.
7. Black Lace Jumpsuit
Get Off My Lace Jumpsuit, $78.00
This black lace jumpsuit is super sexy and glamorous but also challenging. Needless you say, you don´t need only courage, you also need a well-toned body to really look great in it. Be careful in styling it because it can easily border to the cheap side. Use less accessories, only a black wrist watch, a black or silver bracelet, and keep your footwear light.
If you want to wear it without being too revealing, add a boyfriend cardigan, or a drape blazer, in nude hue that matches your shoes.
8. Sheer Embroidered Lace Skirt
Cyndie Skirt, $58.00
This look takes a light blue lace skirt from being feminine into sporty. It brings freshness to your summer style. Although this skirt is has a big sheer drape, it is layered under with shorts in order to avoid accidental flashes. Partner it with sports-style crop top and platform sandals.
9. Lace Skater Dress
Barely Skating by Skater Dress, $68.00
For girls who have a taste for vintage, this lace dress gives the popular skater style an update. Its sheer bodice with floral embroidery creates a barely there statement, but if you rather keep your modesty, layer it with a white tank top. A pair of lace up oxford shoes is perfect to dress down the statement of this dress.
10. Printed Lace Slip Dress
Nasty Gal Stay on Tropic Dress, $78.00
The classic slip dress from the 20s is given yet an unexpected update by blending fierceness and girliness to it. It boosts a gorgeous tropic print trimmed with black lace edging on the hem. To look powerful in a summer-y slip dress, throw over a biker jacket and add a pair of black combat boots.
