How to style a lace dress for every occasion

The Look of Love

If you're looking to add timeless elevation to your wardrobe, a lace dress is a perfect choice no matter the season or occasion.

Often thought of as an eveningwear fabric, intricate and romantic lace is also surprisingly at home on workwear and weekend outfits. Here, we break down how to style lace dresses throughout the week.

for everyday

From weekend brunches to casual mid-week plans, a spliced lace dress - like the Margot Spliced Midi - is an easy and romantic option. This boho-inspired design is floaty and feminine, complete with delicate spliced detailing and flowing hemline. This dress pairs well with white sneakers for an understated look, or with strappy heels for day events. Show off your summer-ready style by adding a straw hat on warmer days.

off to work

Lace doesn’t always spring to mind when compiling a work-drobe, however the sophistication of a lace dress fits perfectly into an office landscape. Opt for the Deena Lace Drape Mini Dress for a desk-ready option. The high neck and capped sleeves are appropriate and classic, while the silhouette is fitted and flattering. Pair with a softly-coloured trench and block heels to complete the look.

RSVP ready

Whether it be a wedding, graduation, formal or ball, lace is right at home at special events. Opt for something with unique detailing, like our Chessie Open Back Lace Maxi Dress. The bow-back design beautifully complements its delicate lace trim, and the pastel blue hue is the perfect shade for spring and summer events. We love this dress with stiletto heels and pearl hair clips for a classic finish. 

evening plans

For plans after-dark, a chic fitted LBD is the way to go – a lace black dress, that is. The Ellyse Lace-Trim Pencil Dress exudes an effortless elegance, with a stylish front split detail ensuring the style is pm-ready. Finish the look with a bold lip, strappy heels and statement jewellery. For chillier nights, pop a leather jacket over your shoulders.
