Do you struggle with transforming your outfits from day to night? Don’t worry, CF is here to help turn that daily annoyance into a fun challenge. Class to Night Out focuses on one piece per week, and aims to help you take your look from study sessions in the library to dancing the night away.
The ultimate girly-girl style staple, lace is not just for old ladies and wedding gowns anymore. There are tons of ways to incorporate lace into your personal style – from dresses, to vests, to my personal favorite lace look – shorts!
Lace shorts are ultra-feminine, which means they can be dressed up for a prim and proper look, or grunged down for something truly wild. No matter your sense of style, you can rock a pair – promise. This week, I’ll be showing you how to style a pair of lace shorts for a day of classes and a night out.
Lace Shorts: Class/Daytime
Ultra-girly meets beachy casual in this look for class or a day of shopping. Pair your shorts with a chic but simple blouse – I’m loving this pale pink one. Add laid-back accessories like pretty studded sandals and a beach-themed charm necklace for a look that’s straight out of The OC. Then glam it up a little with detailed, stackable rings and a structured bag.
Lace Shorts: Night Out
For night, it’s time to go a little wild. Since your shorts are so feminine and delicate, pair them with a top that’s super edgy, like a skull-print tank that would make Alexander McQueen proud. Accessorize with studded gold and black bangles, matching earrings, and a simple black clutch. Keep your shoes simple but stylish, with nude-toned platform sandals. Rock fuchsia nails for a pop of color that’s truly daring.
