As we discussed in our article on how to wear lace, this fabric can be tricky to pull off. However, we know once you've mastered it, you'll love this fabric as much as we do! Below, I've searched the web to find 20+ amazing lace pieces you'll want for your wardrobe!
Tips and Tricks for Wearing Lace
While we've already covered how to wear lace in depth (check out that post for outfit ideas!), here are a few more tips and tricks to pulling off this fabric!
- Less is more. Since lace is an attention-grabber on its own, it's best to keep your ensemble simple. If you're unsure about this trend, try wearing only one lace piece per outfit for a look that's pretty, not busy!
- Cover up. Keep lace pieces classy by wearing something underneath them. Most skirts and dresses made from lace provide a built-in liner for modesty. If your item comes unlined, make sure to stock up on basics for layering--tank tops, slips, bandeaus, leggings, etc. Or use lace as your cover-up! A lace tank looks fabulous peeking out from a button up or under a scoop neck.
- Go for accents. Lace accessories - such as tights, shoes, headbands, and jewelry - are an effortless way to add interest to a look, especially if you're on the fence about lace clothing. Or, if you're a beauty maven, go for a runway-inspired look with lace-covered nails!
- Add detail. One of the freshest ways to wear lace involves using the fabric as an inset. Peekaboo dresses and cut-out cardigans create gorgeous contrast between smooth fabric and alluring lace.
- Handle with care. Be mindful of lace's delicate nature when caring for your new clothing. Always check the tags for washing instructions, and when in doubt, hand wash! Use a mild soap and avoid scrubbing and wringing, both of which can cause snags and tears. Hang the items to dry, or machine dry on low in a mesh bag.
