Have you started scouting for the perfect, feminine knee-length lace dress to wear this summer? Check out these eight beautiful formal outfits below.
Inspired by Kate Middleton´s love of lace, this week´s theme is knee-length lace dresses. Lace is the epitome of femininity and youthful elegance. Although Kate was seen wearing long lace gowns to red carpet events, I decided to narrow this post to knee-length dresses which are more versatile. From weddings to romantic dinner dates and family gatherings, these five lace dresses are a great pick!
1. Sheer Floral Lace Dress in Red
It´s easy to assume that this stunning fit and flare lace dress is only great for women in their twenties and thirties but, there is no such rule. If you want to express your being young at heart, regardless of your age, by all means go ahead and wear this dress.
Fit and flare is a timeless shape and with its flattering overlay and full skirt, this lace dress is almost whimsical. Worn with black girly pumps and a black cute shoulder bag however, the result is feminine yet modern.
2. Lace Dress in Nude
This dress is best for parties or events which require utmost elegance such as weddings or exclusive cocktail parties. It has three-quarter sleeves and a demure length contrast. It beams a minimalist look of nude shade. Keep the elegance with chic black pumps and a sliver clutch.
3. Lace Dress in Pink
To the girls who are wishing for dreamy, whimsical party ensembles for the holidays, this is for you. Can you refuse a lace dress if it´s as pretty as this Alice + Olivia rose pink frock? Its front view is a little conservative but it boosts a teardrop cutout at the back.
Keep the vibe soft and feminine by adding neutrals to the look such as a light pink jacket and beige pumps.
4. Lace Dress in Blue
This Mallary lace dress reminds me of the blue little dress that Kate Middleton wore to the announcement of her engagement to Prince William. Of course, who will forget that dress? But although it´s as elegant, this lace dress is more feminine.
It cinches your waist and flatters your curves for an ultimate girly silhouette. Evil-eye beaded shoulder bag in black is its perfect accessory. But to avoid a dark vibe, add a pair of nude pumps.
5. Lace Dress in Dark Green
To be honest, what captivated me first to this lace dress is its color. It´s rare that I see lace in dark green. And yet with closer inspection, I´m in love with its delicate features and lady-like silhouette – the sheer cap sleeves, the strategic silk feature on the sides which gives you a narrower waist and the fabulous cutout at the back which reveals just a right amount of skin.
I highly recommend this dress to women with fair skin. You only need black accessories to complete an elegant look.
6. Plum Knee-Length Lace Dress
Plum is a rare color when it comes to lace dresses, but this beauty is really stuning if you wear with the right accessories and with the right colors. I picked a pair of glittered high heels in sand color, and a tiny black shoulder bag with gold chain.
Since the dress is already attention-grabbing, and the accessories are statement-making on their own, this look calls very very minimal jewelry.
7. Green Knee-Length Lace Dress
Green is soothing to the eyes but did you know that it´s a bold color? Have you noticed how only few women are able to wear this color? That´s right. So if you´ve found that perfect green dress, such as this lace, green long sleeves body con, pencil knee-lenth dress, be courageous and wear it like you own it.
8. Light Blue Knee-Length Lace Dress
This light blue lace dress has quarter sleeves with bell shape that are elegant and make the dress twice as lovely and feminine. Because its color is soft to the eyes, you can pair with some stunning high heel shoes decorated with beads.
So tell me, are you into lace dresses? Which of the above party-perfect outfit will you wear this holiday?
