How to style a lace dress for every occasion

5 January 2020

The Look of Love

Wear it for work, weekends and special events in between. The lace dress will add timeless elevation to your wardrobe no matter what the season or occasion. Here, we look at our favourite ways to style lace dresses throughout the week.

For everyday

From weekend brunches to casual mid-week plans, a spliced lace dress is the perfect option. We love boho-inspired designs with delicate spliced detailing and a flowing hemline. For an understated look, this style pairs well with white sneakers, or for day events wear yours with strappy heels. Show off your summer-ready style by adding a straw hat

Off to work

Lace doesn’t always spring to mind when compiling a working wardrobe. However, a sophisticated lace dress fits perfectly into an office landscape. For a desk-ready option, opt for a lace dress with a high neck and capped sleeves. Pair with a softly-coloured trench coat and block heels to complete the look.

RSVP ready

For the perfect wedding guest dress, graduation dress or formal dress, look to lace. Opt for something with unique detailing, such as a bow-back design or metallics woven in with lace. Opt for seasonal hues - pastels in summer and spring, and deep berry, emerald and blues for autumn and winter. We love this style with stiletto heels and pearl hair clips for a classic finish. 

Evening plans

For plans after-dark, opt for a chic LBD – a lace black dress, that is. Exude elegance in a fitted lace black dress with modern details such as a front split for the ultimate pm-ready look. The finishing touches? A bold lip, strappy heels and statement jewellery. For chillier nights, pop a leather jacket over your shoulders.
