The lace blouse is a total must-have fashion item this season, but it can be a tricky piece to pull off. You want to embrace the top’s romantic spirit without looking like you’re wearing a costume, and you want to look sexy without looking too scandalous. We put together a few top tips for how to wear a lace blouse, based on how real, cool girls around the world are wearing them.
Try a crocheted kimono on top for twice the texture
German blogger Angela wears her lace shirt like a pro. The crocheted throw worn on top of the blouse adds another dimension and makes the outfit even more interesting. A black bandeau under the blouse keeps her covered without detracting from the rest of the outfit. (And we have to award her bonus points for that pastel-purple-tipped hair!)
Pair a skimpy top with a demure skirt
If your lace top looks a lot like lingerie, you can still totally wear it during the daytime. However, we hope it doesn’t need to be said that you shouldn’t pair it with your fave micro-mini! Rather, wear it with a lady-like midi skirt in a pastel colour, like Portuguese blogger Claudia does here. The juxtaposition between the vampy top and the sweet skirt is so cool!
If you’re into the lingerie look, you must try our Like a Prayer Top in Black – it’s pure vampy goodness.
Pair your lace top with matching bottoms for an extra bit of wow-factor
American blogger Tiffany rocks a high-fashion look here by pairing a lacy crop top with matching culottes. Her bold pants are definitely not for the timid, but you could do a similar, more conservative look by pairing top with a lace pencil skirt.
A white lace blouse + a maxi skirt = boho perfection
The Italian blogger behind Eniwhere Fashion looks like a luxe hippie in her lacey top and olive maxi skirt. You could up the ethereal vibes by choosing a white maxi skirt.
Our Lacey Top in White is a classic lace top that would look stunning with your fave maxi.
