Can anything be more feminine and sophisticated than a lace outfit? This one trend characterizes a womanly charm and hence I’ve made my mind that I’m keeping this for the new season too. I usually like to wear regular work outfits like pants and a blouse or tee with a cardigan outside as well because it is effortless. Lace outfit was something I was too afraid to wear to work or even off-duty due to the alarming peek-a-boo until I exposed a new way to upgrade this ultra feminine trend of 2018.
In this blog story, I’m sharing five ways one should wear lace tops in summer as well as for early-winter days. My style is categorically schizophrenic; it does change from day to day a lot. It really depends on my mood: sometimes I’ll wear a basic white tee and tuck in for some casual hang-around-the-city dressing. Then sometimes I’ll be moody and just wear a flowy maxi dress.
The lace top is one of the brand new obsession in this year and I’m glad I’ve given it a try not too late. This white crop-length lace top is from Dressbery and believes me, I’m never soooo thankful to myself for buying a crop top then. I’m not retiring myself from this beautiful lace top even through the colder days (of course, with layering game on point). I wore this pretty lace top with a bandeau top beneath and teamed it with a girly sky blue pleated midi-skirt. Keeping hair and styling to minimal, I tied a half knot and left other section of hair free and grabbed this attention-grabbing sling bag.
Lace Top: Should Do and Shouldn’t Do
1. Do: Watch what’s beneath.
When minimal trend is having it’s moment, let’s not over emphasis what’s beneath and opt for neutral shade.
Don’t: A see-through bralettes sure looks appealing on models on the ramp but let’s get a bit real. We don’t want to objectify our assets, no?
2. Do: Style check.
When I say, I’m not giving up on lace top, I consider the weather and alter my style accordingly. If it’s getting colder outside, I can put on a smart denim jacket over it.
Don’t: Don’t follow the trend carelessly. The lace top is in trend, but when you are not convinced, don’t push yourself.
3. Do: Colour conveys more.
The white lace top is very modest and looks beautiful during daytime while black lace is powerful and expresses glamour; an evening appropriate indeed.
Don’t: You shouldn’t mislay the colours when it comes to lace trend.
4. Do: Dress up or dress down
My look here is somewhere between total dress-up and dress-down because I opted for a casual sling bag and a pair of white sneakers. You can raise the fashion bar by switching the accessories; a metallic clutch and a metallic stiletto for an absolute dressed up look.
Don’t: Whether you opt for dress up or dress down, mind well the place you are visiting and you are all set, either way, darlings!
5. Do: Play around!
Lace tops are extremely classy. You can wear this in countless styles. Bring in some androgyny by wearing a white lace top with flared, high-waist jeans and a pair of mules. Layer your lace top with a strappy maxi dress for a bohemian chic style.
Don’t: You should NEVER go with contrast camisoles under your lace top. It is so old school and trusts me it will wipe out the symmetry of the lace outfit.
