Lace shirts can be worn, so long as you wear a tank top that covers you underneath. If you choose to wear a bralet or something similar, make sure it is in a color close to your skin tone. You want the attention to focus on the sophistication of lace. If your undergarments show through, it just looks tacky. Wear a long sleeved lace top with skinny jeans and leather boots. Layer on a soft cardigan to add additional depth and texture. Or pair it with a floral or striped mini skirt for a contrast in both texture and pattern. Keep your jewelry simple. A long pendant or simple stone earrings will add style without going overboard. For nights out, pair a lace corset with a pencil skirt and gold heels. Carry a glittering clutch purse and keep a soft scarf with you to cover up in case you get chilly during the evening.
Short lace skirts should be paired with stops that cover up such as long sleeves or turtle necks. Lace is revealing or gives the illusion of reveal when lined, so it is best to combat this with a top that shows less skin. Longer lace skirts can be paired with a wide belt and a tank top or short sleeved shirt. You can wear a lace mini with a tank top if you wear leggings. Remember, keep things in balance.
Lace dresses are especially versatile. Wear with a belt and scarf draped around your neck. Carry an envelope clutch and you are all set for brunch with friends! Wear it to work with a blazer, a quilted handbag and sensible peep toe pumps. For casual coffee dates or shopping trips, wear a denim jacket or soft cardigan over your dress. For cooler weather, wear it over tights, ankle boots, a mid-length coat and tube scarf.
