Lace Up for Fall: 3 Ways to Wear the Delicate Fabric

Little lace dresses were big for summer – but just because the warm weather is over doesn’t mean you have to ward off the feminine fabric all together. Below, check out three ways to wear the girlish texture straight through fall.


The 9-to-5
This romantic texture isn’t just for dinner dates. For the office, try a structured lace dress (an A-line style works best) in classic black or white. To really make a splash at the morning meeting, add a few bright cobalt blue accessories.

Girl’s Night Out
It’s time to get a little crazy – with textures, that is. For a sweet-meets-edgy look, mix a little ladylike lace with a pair of leather shorts. To complete the look, slip on a pair of metallic gold heels and get ready to dance the night away.

Weekend Afternoons
Sure, lace has a reputation for being a little prim and proper, but that doesn’t mean it can’t hang. For a casual weekend outing, pair a simple lace top with dark-wash skinnies and knee-high boots – just keep everything in the same color family.
