How to Wear Lace: Stylists Weigh In
You thought about wearing a bra top, but let's face it, the look is just too daring for you.
Fortunately, there’s another lingerie-inspired style that’s not only been gracing fashion runways, but that stylists believe works on everyone.
“Whether interpreted as a print, worn all over, topping off an outfit, or intricately placed in panels and insets, lace is now the must-have fabric for 2014,” says Lizzy Bowring, fashion director at Stylesight. “New non-traditional interpretations have emerged (on the runways). Some rigid, others more tightly woven with metallic for a modern geometric look.”
“On the flipside, lace can be discreetly feminine and grown up or provocative and sexy," Bowring adds. "Other laces are seen as lightweight and sheer, resembling slips of lingerie."
Whether you want to feel like a model or just want to add some oomph to your overall personal style, lace is one of the easiest and sexiest fabrics to wear — if done correctly.
