Happy Friday: How to Style Lace!
Life would not be the same for any Diva without lace. From lingerie to sexy dresses, you’ll find at least a snippet from the closet or spilling out of the sock drawer. It’s no surprise that the starlets will flirt with lace every now and then – dazzling the red carpet. As much as we love lace, it does come with its own challenges. If you’re a fan of lace bras, you’ll experience that over time, a rip or snag can send your heart into utter despair. Lace is delicate and feminine material. The other issue is how to wear it well so as to not overshadow its beauty?
We took on the challenge of styling two of our most challenging lace pieces from our collection. These are our strapless midi lace dresses featuring a sweetheart neckline, which have a striped appearance.
The Rules of Lace
- Choosing your lace outfit is key. Steer clear from several multi-colors of lace sewn together. Two well-blended colors should be the max. Avoid lingerie looking lace dresses.
- The biggest ‘don’t’ is to never add more lace to your already lacey dress. Steer clear from lace gloves, lace shoes, earrings or clutches.
- The biggest ‘do,’ is to downplay the accessories so that the dress remains the focal point of your look!
There are a lot of possibilities with a midi style lace dress. Our Strapless Sweetheart Lace Midi Dress (Black) carries a simple design with a striped appearance. The trick is to keep it simple. So we farmed across a lot of options. A simple pump with an interesting cut will keep you stylish. Keep clutches simple and single colored.
Jewelry can easily steal the show from your dress. So, you want to be careful in how you wear it. Avoid long necklaces with this particular dress. A simple faux jewelry choker would be the best option if you don’t want to go bare. If you choose a cuff, go simple and skip the necklace altogether. Or, you can choose simple drops below and skip the necklace and cuffs.
Now our Strapless Sweetheart Lace Midi Dress (Pink) is a little more challenging! Since we are working with pink and gray tones, we have to be more selective in our choices. White, grays and accent colors can blend easily into this one. A color-blocked simple pump can keep it interesting. Or, you can choose simple white pumps with a little bit of sparkle. Leaf feather drops make a cute accent - sans the necklaces and other jewelry. Or opt for a little bit of gray and faux diamond bling. White and faux jewelry clutches can easily blend in. Keep the colors simple.
