You know the drill–lace is always part of our collections all year long. It’s the effortless timeless fabric you can wear to any event (or just every day). We’ve become a little creative with laces. This season, we’re looking forward to rockin’ embroidered floral lace, crochet lace, corded lace, and even our staple white lace looks with a little twist.
When in doubt, wear lace.
Lace can instantly dress things up for occasions like weddings, banquets, dinner dates, graduations–you name it. It’s romantic and chic, and the texture is just remarkably unboring for those of you thirsting for something a bit more extra.
A classic delicate lace is essential for dressing up or dressing down. Wear lace off shoulder tops with jeans for casual days, or pair them with a chic white skirt to dress them up! With a variety of silhouettes and necklines, this is the most versatile lace for boho tops and dresses for clubbing alike. See how versatile this look is? We can, and we love it. Summer nights, you’ve met your match.
We love classic lace looks wherever we can find them. They’re delicate and light–perfect for the spring or summer seasons! Classic lace is wearable day or night–just change up the pieces you pair. You can even wear them at night in sexy clubbing dresses, fancy wedding guest attire, or even in your next festival outfits.
We’re in love with anything that is a little sheer, but a whole lotta gorgeous. Take embroidered tulle for instance: the sheer fabric paired with floral embroidery in shimmery shades like pearlescent white, mauve, and even red hues make for an eye-catching, chic & sexy AF look. Wear casual embroidered lace tops or sexy lace dresses for clubbing–wherever you want to make a statement, this style’s got your back.
We love wearing this over-the-top material when we want to stand out. The sexy sheer material paired with the embroidered florals draws the eyes instantly. Birthday outfits? No prob. Party night? We got you.
There’s nothing like a beautiful corded lace for that romantic and delicate look, perfect for any fancy event you’re going to, including weddings, wedding rehearsals, dinners–you get the gist. Stick with the classic corded lace we all know and love if you’re going to a more upscale event or even for a casual brunch. It’ll even make for a gorgeous graduation outfit you won’t regret a few years from now (cue the photo ops!). Find this beautiful corded lace material in some of our most stunning wedding guest dresses. Sophisticated & timeless, these pieces are essential if you’re attending any semi-formal or formal event this season. Corded lace adds the texture that screams expensive, but don’t worry, ladies–these are well within your budget!
Lately, we’ve been obsessed with the Battenburg lace. Can you guess why? The delicate pattern is beautiful as a trim, insert, or an allover piece. We love layering with these light tops, wearing Battenburg lace cover-ups over swimwear, and even as dresses (fully lined, of course). It’s one of our spring/summer staples!
The first thing that pops into our minds when we think of Spring and Summer is the abundance of crochet. Crochet makes an appearance in these months in lace fabrics, too. Yes, boho babes, something for the hard-core boho girl and romantic girl alike. Let these two beautiful fabrics converge to create something so effortlessly chic, we just can’t anymore. The sheer see-through fabric is perfect for festival outfits, vacation outfit looks, and even fun summer outfits you can wear to brunch or beach parties! Check out our spring dresses for more hot-weather worthy dress looks in crochet lace and more!
If you’re yearning for a thicker lace material, say for a cool spring or summer night, or even something that’s not sheer but just as sexy and romantic as any lace can be, corded lace is your best bet. A corded two-tone lace gives the piece an added flare in a contrasting trim around an already gorgeous corded lace material. If you’re looking for something that pops, this is it. Wear this look to weddings, bridal showers, brunch, and even nights out with friends. It’s our choice for celebrating any special occasion including weddings, birthday celebrations, summer evening drinks, and dinners!
Lace is the wardrobe essential you need in your life. For anything where you want to amp up the style power, the elegance, or the timelessness, throw on a lace dress, top or bottom! Adding some texture into your wardrobe is a style tip we love to share. The contrasting textures and textiles in your closet make for an interesting combo of clothes that will get you major style points.
