These are the secrets on how to wear lace outfits in spring and summer in order to look powerful while being feminine.
A Spring and summer essential item that I feel is a must have for any closet involves lace. I love how lace is a classic item that gives an outfit that extra delicate and timeless touch.
Lace is never absent from spring and summer runway shows, which hints that this is a seasoned classic trend that can be worn in many, many ways, even as a transitional piece.
Whether your aim is to maximize its girly element or to deviate from its familiar femininity, this post will show you the different ways to inject fierceness into a lace. You can look edgy in a lace while still maintaining class and glamor, or you can be totally fabulously feminine, your call.
1. Cover your lace dress with cardigan
Bring out your skill in matching colors. You´re going to dress up a colored lace dress with complementary colors. Obviously, your dress is your base. Look for a cardigan, preferrably a grandpa cardigan in a shade that blends well with your base color, to layer over your dress.
Remember, you don´t have to copy this runway look as is. You can work with your own colors. The key here is choosing one piece to pop up.
2. Match your pullover with lace skirt
This time you are called to play matchy. Think of earthy hues: tan, nude, dark brown, sand, even blush. Don´t worry about the dullness, you´ll break it out with bright accessories. But how do you play tomboy in a feminine midi lace skirt? By adding a boyish pullover!
3. How to Wear Lace Outfits: Simply chic with lace playsuit
Oh la la! Time to play flirty in a playsuit once again. Go for a seductive black lace number to partner with a pair of sexy black pumps. You can either go for an all-black look or add a pop of color with a bright clutch, your call.
4. Go for street-style chic, lace and joggers
If you think jogging pants are only worn to the gym or if you jog outdoors, think again. Joggers are now made trendier than they used to be. Bring out a cute lace top – show off those abs with a crop lace top or simply tuck in a hip-length top if you rather have your mid-section covered.
Dress up your joggers with a pair of killer sandals.
5. Lace Tank Top with Jeans
I live in Houston and Spring is usually in the high 80s. This lace top with its sleeveless tank style is fresh and light. And can you see the eyelash design on this lace tank!? Isn’t it cute?
I paired the lace tank with a ditsy floral printed jeans that is fun and brings out the girly girl in me. I am so happy to have found a great lace tank that is perfect for Spring.
6. How to Wear Lace Outfits: Lace Skirt with Moto Jacket
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.
7. Lace Top with Leather Bottom
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.
8. How to Wear Lace Outfits: Lace Socks
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.
9. Add a Lace Shrug to a Dress
If you have a beautiful sleeveless dress and you prefer to cover up your shoulders, adding an elegant lace shrug or bolero cardigan will quickly level up the look. A white lace shrug or bolero cardigan will work with any dress no matter the color, however, matching it with a light hue, pastel colored dress will give you a very summer-ish outfit to rock any day.
10. How to Wear Lace Outfits: Black Lace Jumpsuit
This black jumpsuit is super elegant. It has a lace bodice with short sleeves and high neck. It also has a high-waisted, cropped pencil trousers. So wearing this look gives an illusion of haveing two pieces in the outfit, when in fact it´s a jumpsuit.
Complete the look with a pair of sexy strapped high heels and an envelop clutch bag.
11. Lace Slip Dress
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.
