Black lace is innately sexy, but how—you may ask—can you make this seductive fabric cool? We look to actress Abigail Spencer who stepped out in Hollywood this week rocking an extremely chic (yet unexpected) ensemble. On paper, this combination may look crazy, but IRL it’s a winning outfit that we plan to have on deck for any last-minute dates, cocktail parties or events that call for your fashion to be on it’s A-game. The strategy? Pair a sheer lace top with textured skirt (think: fringe, embellishments and the like) in a lady-like length. Swap black pumps for edgy grey suede and finish with a sultry swipe of red lipstick. The resulting look is festive, sophisticated and ever-so glamorous.
