We give you some ideas on how to look radiant in ruffled lace dresses in the right way:
Asymmetrical hems: If you are going for a dress that has plenty of ruffled lace on it, then you may feel that the dress in question looks too girlish on you, in such cases it is a good idea to keep the hem uneven. The asymmetrical hem with ruffled lace can allow the wearer to show some leg or thigh if you feel like it.
Border and sleeves: If you feel that you cannot carry a dress with ruffled lace all over, then the best option for you is to have ruffled lace at the border of the dress and at the edge of the sleeves. This can make a dress look soft and feminine without you having to go overboard with the lace.
Fitted dress with lace: Ruffled lace on a dress can make the wearer look a bit bulkier than she is and this could be the reason that many curvy women stay away from these dresses. The solution to this is to wear a fitted dress if it has ruffled lace on it. this will ensure that you look trim as well as feminine.
Ruffled lace skirts: Another way to ensure that the wearer does not look bulkier than they have to is by having a fitted bodice made of a stretchable material and a fuller skirt with ruffled lace on it. This creates a nice hour glass like effect that heightens the femininity of the wearer.
Jacket or shrug: Another sensible way to use ruffled lace without making the wearer feel too bulky or conscious is by using it to make a shrug or jacket. This jacket or shrug can be then flung on top of a fitted top to create a dashing and attractive effect.
