Let’s face it–there are days when our go-to turtlenecks and chic sweaters are just too hot for the weather. To keep you feeling cool this humid season, it’s best to resort to breezy, lightweight pieces like romantic lace. This versatile piece can take you from looking office-appropriate to cocktail-ready, as it subtly shows your skin while keeping you covered up. Clearly, going for your skin-baring sleeveless tops and skirts isn’t the only way to beat the heat in style.
Below are 3 fresh ways on to wear lace this season!
1. White on White
Add contrast to a white lace top by pairing it with matching white ripped jeans for that overall casual vibe.
2. White Lace Dress
Consider a white lace frock as your new little black dress (or rather, your LBD). It’s a classic silhouette that you can easily upgrade with accessories. Toughen up the otherwise dainty, feminine frock by adding edgy accessories to the mix like a pair of leather booths and a tote bag.
3. Lace and Denim
Pair a ruffled lace top with mom jeans for the ultimate cool-girl look. It strikes the perfect balance of looking dressy but not overly done.
