Wearing lace for daytime
Textures are very important when putting together a complete outfit. While trendy textures like sequins and feathers can be fun, classic materials can make an equally interesting statement. Lace has been around for centuries, worn by women of all shapes, sizes, and ages. However, this timeless fabric’s versatility is often overlooked. When we think “lace,” we often think evening wear or special occasions. Style Doctors believes in taking advantage of the versatility that our clothes offer – so we’ve gotten creative and put together some lacy daytime looks.
Lace is typically associated with luxury and femininity – not office wear. Luckily, lace can be styled to be work appropriate. They key to making it work for daytime is balancing the sexy with conservative. Keep your blouse or dress with a high neckline, and your skirt’s hem below the knee. Too much lace can be overwhelming and uncomfortable during the day, so if you want to start off with touches of the texture, try a lacy blouse paired with trousers, or a plain dress with a lace hem. Remember to keep the rest of the outfit simple and sophisticated!
Dressing down lace is actually much easier than some may think. Many women automatically dismiss lace when it comes to casual settings, but by treating it like any other texture, it’s very easy to style for a Sunday afternoon. Think jeans, trainers or ballet flats, blazers or denim jackets, and minimalistic hair and makeup. By keeping the rest of the outfit simple, the lace can be the standout piece.
