Lovely in Lace

Celebrities can’t get enough of lace lately, and we’ve seen lingerie-inspired dresses heating up almost every red carpet this season.

Though the lingerie trend has come and gone before, actresses like Gossip Girl’s Blake Lively and Leighton Meester have given the trend a fresh spin, with long, flowing skirts revealing elaborate, high-waisted underwear pieces underneath.

This trend doesn’t seem simple to pull off in the real world, but the key is moderation. A lace bandeau peeking out from a silk top or shorts with a scalloped hemline are both easy ways to rock this look — without looking like you belong on a street corner!

What we love:

Kookai Silk and Lace Gathered Dress, Pink Eyelash lace trim shorts and Silence + Noise Printed Floral Lace Bandeau

For more conservative occasions, lace can be incorporated to show a hint of shoulder, like in this Kookal dress. This look is sexy without leaning too much into lingerie territory.

Pink Eyelash Lace Trim Shorts

These adorable shorts are reminiscent of bloomer underwear from the 1950’s. The runner-style shape makes them easy to wear every day, while the unique lace at the hemline incorporates just enough of a boudoir feel.

Silence + Noise Printed Floral Lace Bandeau Bandeaus

These are perhaps the easiest way to take your first step into the lingerie trend. This one is edgy and feminine and can be worn peeking out from under a semi-sheer blouse or from the back of a backless top or dress.
