Lace clothing adds a touch of elegance as soon as you put it on, meaning that it doesn’t need much help when it comes to accessorising. If you would like to add some extra glam however, it is always best to add some kitten heels or a small clutch bag. This way your chosen additions do not draw any attention away from the detail of the lace.


There are many ways that lace can be worn and the style depends on several different factors which is why you have to take into account the occasion, the dress code, the colours and the way you want to present yourself. For example, lace is perfect for romantic occasions and can be worn elegantly with glittering jewels and heels. Think about Kate Middleton’s elegance and you’re on the right path! Lace can also be worn in a more relaxed way, almost reminiscent of the hippy era; where wavy hair, necklaces and sunhats are the perfect accompaniment. Coloured lace helps draw attention to the lace design using bright colours, sequins and beads.

Time of Day

It is important to remember that lace clothing has a particular stance in certain environments. For example, some lace designs may not be suitable for a working environment that require smart and formal wear.
