Lace dresses can get some flak for being too conservative and coquettish. It doesn’t have to be. The cut of the dress combined with the right lace type will spice up the lace dress thereby being anything but boring.
The right lace dress will make you not only loo k but feel super feminine and sexy. There are many types of lace and different cuts and styles of dress made in lace material. Here are a few tips on how to wear a lace dress.
1. Try colored lace
If you’re not daring enough to try vibrant colored lace, a neutral color such as beige or gold would perfectly allow you to steer from the blacks and whites while still looking super chic. A lace dress in gold is flattering for almost every skin tone. A gold lace dress is a fabulous pick as a party or cocktail dress, making it the perfect alternative to the conventional LBD.
2. Quality of lace
It would be a wise purchase decision to look at the quality of the lace as cheap laces tend to carry a cheap look and comes across as tacky. A universally flattering and versatile lace print is floral. It is delicate and feminine yet you can add a raw factor to it by accessorizing with more edgy accessories. A shorter length lace dress in a neutral color can serve as the ultimate weapon to look good for any occasion. Switch it out with your hair, makeup, accessories and shoe choices.
3. Let the lace dress take centre stage
The lace dress is a standalone statement dress so let it be. Daring girls may opt for a shorter cut lace dress that is slightly sheer. However for the more modest girls, go for a dress that just grazes above the knee or knee length. Add a slip underneath if too sheer. Keep accessories to a minimal and if you do accessorize, pick simplistic and timeless jewellery pieces such as a pair of hoop earrings and a simple necklace. Finish off with a pair of peeptoe heels or patent nude pumps for a feminine and flirty fun look.
