5 Lace Styles That Will Make You This Spring’s Trendsetter [PHOTOS]
Lace might be a typical “girly” pattern but it rarely makes its way into street fashion, usually used just for brides and fashion models. This spring, though, the feminine fabric is quickly blooming into a wearable trend that will make you the envy of all your friends who are still stuck in winter. Bring summer a step closer with these 5 beautiful ideas on how to put a little lace in your look.
Start small with shoes!
Lacey flats go well with rompers, skirts and denim shorts. The soft fabric of the ones above won’t give you the usual blisters either! The same can’t be said for pumps, but lacey heels go well with a summery dress if you’re looking to dance with a groomsman at a spring wedding.
Get creative with nails.
They’re such a small part of your look but they have a big impact! Turn your nails into a canvas with lace accents by either buying stick-ons at the store or carefully cutting up pieces of a paper doily and applying while polish is wet. Cover with a layer of clear polish to seal. Make the base color bright or neutral depending on your mood.
Flirt in a lace skirt!
Keep the hem above the knee to avoid looking like a tablecloth or a grandmother. Otherwise, have fun with this risky trend. Wear a bright skirt with a white top or vice versa to keep it fresh.
DIY with some denim.
Frayed cut-offs are always in style, but stand out from the pack by sewing on some lace edges. These keep you girly even while you’re playing soccer barefoot on the quad.
Take the plunge with a full-on lace dress.
The safest way to do this trend is to stick with bold colors. White and ivory will look bridal (and tablecloth-y) unless you douse yourself in accessories. Instead, pick a classic silhouette in a modern color, belt it and slip on a pendant.
One last tip — don’t wear more than one of these at a time! Otherwise, have fun with this new trend and turn all the right heads this spring season.
