Ask Shopbop: 3 Ways to Wear Lace

Blog_12-05-09_lace

I really want to try the lace trend but don’t know which way to wear it. Do you have any suggestions?

I love lace. It’s incredibly versatile. No matter which way you go with it, lace always adds an extra pop of personality. Here are my three favorite ways to incorporate a little lace into any ensemble.

Retro
For a look that reads retro, try suiting separates in a monochromatic, ladylike silhouette. Finish it off with a strappy Jenni Kayne heel or a Rag & Bone flat. Polished jewelry, a structured Tory Burch bag, and sleek hair pull it all together.

Modern
If you’re after something more modern, take lace to a colorblocked or high-contrast place.  Tossing in sharp black accessories against a white or neutral lace DVF dress can really do the trick.  Also try pairing lace with your sharply tailored pieces or leather separates for an edgier mood.

Playful
Lace can be very playful, so don’t be afraid to work in your casual favorites like well-loved tees or distressed denim.  Add a pop of sequins to set the tone, and work with accessories that have a sense of humor, like this shark mouth A.L.C. cuff or fruit slice Marc by Marc Jacobs earrings.
