Besides lace dresses, few are the times I find myself wearing an all lace outfit. It is probably the case for most ladies, before Instagram made small lace crop tops and knee length skirts pretty popular.
I find lace very sexy, this is why styling lace outfits tends to be a very delicate balance. When you decide to wear a full outfit of lace, it is very important to keep the rest of the look very simple; except if you’re intending the Dolce & Gabbana extravaganza. If the lace in the outfit is very revealing, it becomes even more important to style it in a way that keeps the overall look elegant, as it risks becoming cheap.
Here are seven styling tips to upgrade your all lace outfit, just like I did in Batiste London‘s private dinner at The Westin – Dubai:
1- Add a jacket on your shoulders. Leather is an option, a classic blazer in a neutral color is another.
2- Keep your hair simple and un-accessorized.
3- Keep the look at a maximum of two colors, and preferably with minimal or no patterns.
4- Makeup for such a look should be understated and single focused. I would personally focus either on cat eyes or a sexy pout.
5- Accessories are better be bold, simply cut, and minimal.
6- Your choice of bags and shoes should also stay simple, no platforms, no complex material, and no patterns. Colors must also respect and match the colors of the outfit.
7- Finally, make sure the lace outfit is not too revealing; and know where to draw the line between sexy and -no offense- trashy.
