When you think of lace, your mind might immediately go to wedding dresses and lingerie. But this carefully cut-out textile is actually more versatile than you might think. These days, lace and similar embellishments like eyelets can be found on everything from ultra-feminine ruffled skirts to bomber jackets and statement accessories. Whether your style is sophisticated or deliciously frilly, here are three ways to work lace into your wardrobe this season.
Lady in lace
From date night to days where you simply want to wear something extra pretty, lace is an obvious go-to. A tiered ruffled skirt and statement bag lend to event-ready style, while a casual lace tee is ideal for off-duty.
Tough around the edges
Ever think lace could be edgy? Here’s proof. Tomboy-inspired pieces like roomy bomber jackets, boxy muscle tanks, and cool trimmed shades turn our favorite “feminine” trend into a casually cool summer statement.
Lace doesn't have to be in your face. Sprinkle it into your wardrobe with pieces like a solid tee with a trimmed edge, a scalloped eyelet dress, or a subtle separate you can layer—like a lace bralette.
