Spring Trend: How to Wear Lace

This spring lace is in! Lace has actually been pretty big for a few seasons, on and off of course, but I'm still loving it. It can be worn so many different ways, it truly depends on your personal style and the mood you wish to portray. Below, I have put together a few ideas of how you can encorporate lace into your everyday look, if you haven't already ;)

First off, for the fashion conscious, why not try a lace skirt? You can dress it up or down very easily, depending on what top you wear with it. The simplest way? A plain old tank top (white or black is always chic, but I also love the idea of a pastel colour, such as light pink, aqua, or even lavender). This thought also applies to both the skirt/top. Ie: Wear a coloured skirt with a neutral top or vice versa.
Secondly, for girls who aren't so into the whole trend: try a simple floral cami with lace detailing. Florals are always in for spring/summer. The lace just makes it that much cuter! I've paired this cami with white pinstriped shorts -- another current trend of mixing patterns (subtly of course).
Next I have combined a simple grey dress with LACE tights. With the warmer weather (hopefully) coming soon, put away those opaque winter tights and bring out the lace! These have a beautiful flowered pattern to it. A very easy look to do =)
The following look is definitely for the more daring woman. Corset like shirts are very in right now but I'm not too sure everyone has accepted that yet. I like how this corset automatically draws you in, making you think that whoever is wearing it is sexy, confident and strong. Something so revealing must always be paired with a classic piece (like these dark skinny jeans). Probably not the best day look, unless paired with a more conservative boyfriend blazer or cardigan. Want to dress it down? Throw on a big comfy cardigan and some ballet flats or flat boots.
Lastly, NEWS FLASH-- you can wear a lace dress without looking trashy (or look like your wearing lingerie)... This cute dress isn't skin tight but it also isn't too poufy. So it will skim over your lovely curves and allow you not to worry about your hem rising. This dress is also very versatile. Pair it with leggings and a cardigan for day or with heels and a blazer for night.

Hope you guys enjoyed this post. Been pretty inspired by lace and pastel colours lately. Tell me... how do you like to rock your lace outfits? xo <3
