This set has so many of my favorites. Represented here is not only all kinds of lace, but also animal print, peep toe shoes, pencil skirts, white pants, hot pink and turquoise accessories. I love it all!
Of course, there needs to be some guidelines for wearing lace in the workplace. Lace could go from classy to trashy pretty quickly if you're not careful. Here are my guidelines:
- It should NEVER look like you are wearing lingerie in the office. That is a big NO NO! It needs to be clear that you are wearing a lace shirt and not that your bra is showing.
- Lace should be paired with structured pieces like pencil skirts or slacks. Or lace should be on a tailored item, like this pencil shirt. If you wear a lace full-skirt it may look like you are heading to church or a bridal shower.
- Limit yourself to one lace element. A shirt, a skirt or maybe even a shift dress but don't overdo the lace and be sure to ground it with stronger fabrics or accessories.
I was in Target the other day and found a white lace peplum top that I can't wait to pair with jeans for a casual look (like Js) or a bright pencil skirt for the office.
I'm desperately waiting for spring to arrive here in Blacksburg so I can finally start wearing some of the items off my Spring Wish List. How are you wearing lace this season?
