The grown-up guide to wearing lace

Lace has a reputation for being tricky. It’s often sheer, for one. So how do you wear it if you don’t fancy going sans bra and baring all? It’s also loaded with bridal connotations. Does this mean you should steer clear unless you’re walking down the isle? Or is avoiding the most delicate Chantilly lace precautionary enough?

Luckily, the Spring/Summer 2017 shows offered up a plethora of ways to wear lace well. From the ivory midi skirts at Balenciaga to the blush variations at Chanel, and from the tricks for layering lace at Burberry to the fabulous colourful floral dresses at Alexander McQueen, we’re not short of inspiration.

Here are our top tips for incorporating lace into your wardrobe…

You can wear a white lace dress

While we’re not suggesting that you turn up to any of your impending spring nuptials in a matching dress to the bride, a white lace dress is actually a lovely option for spring and summer events.

Keep your hemline long and your silhouette floaty, so as to conjuer bohemian references. And pair with some standout earrings, as Solange Knowles did when she wore white lace to Chloe’s most recent show (above).

A little (trim) goes a long way

If a guipure dress or ruffled lace blouse just isn’t you, then try incorporating this decorative fabric into your wardrobe by way of a lace trim or subtle detail. If you favour simple pieces, this can offer a good way to add a point of interest to you look.

Think a slouchy knit with lace cutouts teamed with a pair of wide-leg trousers, or a silky, lace-lined cami top layered underneath an oversize blazer.

Don’t rule out lace trousers

Thought lace trousers were the preserve of beach holidays? Think again. When worn with the right accompanying pieces they can provide the basis of a chic evening look.

Opt for a wide-leg pair (never tight) and elevate with a mid-heel. The trick is to opt for a top in a simple fabric and cut to avoid your ensemble looking over-the-top.

Dress it down

While lace can provide the backbone of a fabulous evening look, it is also a viable daytime option. The key is to wear your lace with casual pieces (think a logo T-shirt or a simple round neck knit) and flat shoes.

”I like to style lace with boots instead of making it super-dressy with stilettos,” says Aimee Song, of style and interior design blog Song of Style. ”Pairing a lace skirt with knitwear will also them it more casual,” she continues.

Embrace colour

From bright shades of green, yellow and blue, to paler hues of pink, grey and purple: lace lends itself very well to colour. Not only do different tones offer a refreshing twist on this classic fabric, but they also make it considerably more wearable. Try pairing a colourful lace skirt paired with a white shirt or camel jumper for work.

Don’t eschew historical influences

Rather than considering how you’re going bring lace into the 21st century, why not take your queues from fashions-past? A Victorian-style lace blouse, complete with a frilled collar and cuffs, is the perfect desk-to-dinner piece. Just add a swipe of red lipstick.

In a similar vein, channel 1920s glamour and opt for a lace dress with a drop-waist over a figure-hugging alternative for a day at the races.

Layer your lace

Not only does a lace blouse look very chic layered underneath a mid-length dress, but it also solves the issue of what to wear underneath something that is more-or-less completely sheer. Win-win.

Another nifty layering technique is wearing a sheer lace skirt underneath a (slightly shorter) opaque midi skirt or shirt dress – this will give you the effect of a lace trim, while also offering your favourite pieces a new lease of life.
