A lace skirt is definitely one of the most beautiful summer pieces of this season, and certainly a must have of this summer. The midi version looks best, although fashion allows for varying interpretations and so provides us with so many different style choices. It can be very romantic or sexy, completely suitable for daywear or totally evening, floor length, or shorter and more appropriate for younger women. You can basically play around with it, because it enables you to achieve beautiful results. So take time and play around with this piece, as it truly accentuates femininity, and a modern woman that likes translucent fabrics and the intrigue of covering up and revealing.
The best choice is undoubtedly a skirt with a translucent bottom part, that way the lace gets the most notice. Modern lace is quite compact, so the lining doesn’t have to be quite as long, even though some skin will show, it’s a very wearable and elegant look. It used to be an unwritten rule that lace was only appropriate for evening wear, but this trend has completely changed, and so nowadays lace is widely used and is appropriate for any occasion. Similar is true for tops, which we wear with jeans, and they always make the look somewhat smarter. Lace is definitely the fabric right now that cannot be missing from your wardrobe closet.
Don’t fret over how you’ll style the lace skirt, because it allows for endless possibilities. I love it with an elegant blouse that can either be translucent or plain, in a contrasting colour or matching the skirt. A plain T-shirt or a sweater is also nice, especially for the cooler days: the contrast between lace and wool is quite sexy. You can just as easily wear some frills, open backs, off the shoulder tops and blazers, of course, because there are lots of longer jackets, unlined and so quite wearable even when it’s hot outside. The lace and translucent trend will continue into the winter of 2017, so you should splurge on some of these pieces: they’re a good investment and will last forever, in a way.
