Two Ways To Wear Lace If You’re Not A Girly Girl


A true fashion chameleon, Cara Delevingne embodies a host of different style sensibilities, easily segueing from tomboy chic to darkly romantic and back again. That said, she rarely enters saccharine territory—if ever she’s rocking something overtly girly, it will usually be offset by otherwise edgy add-ons. Take, for example, her recent affinity for lace—a fabric that can read prim and feminine, Cara demonstrates how to spin it to complement a moodier attitude. Here, two takes (on the same lace blouse!) to try if the thought of a sticky-sweet outfit makes you run for the hills.

With an embroidered skirt and thigh-high boots

A range of textures—and a deep burgundy lip—adds interest to Cara's sultry look. An A-line mini that just grazes the top of thigh-high boots is incredibly alluring for date night. (You can, of course, add a camisole under the sheer blouse if the peekaboo bra look isn't your thing.)

With boyish separates

Cara demonstrates the ultimate feminine/masculine juxtaposition by teaming her lace top with suiting separates and leather sneakers. The effect is undeniably cool and modern, and proves you can combine distinctly different sensibilities for a stylish effect. (Again, pop a fitted camisole underneath the blouse for modesty if you so desire.)
