How To Look Cool In Lace


Lace is a schizophrenic fabric, it can either skew incredibly sexy (Victoria’s Secret model), or unbelievably dowdy (matronly Victorian housewife). Since it is cold out, we’re guessing you’re in greater danger of looking like the latter. Our first recommendation would be to steer clear of pearls and hand gloves and opt instead for modern extras. With all of the delightful lace options on the market, the opportunities are endless. Here, see how we suggest styling the luxurious fabric for work, play and evening.
