We normally tend to associate lace with wedding gowns and this is not entirely wrong, but what would be wrong is to restrict lace to only wedding dresses. The fact is lace is something that can add class and elegance to any outfit even if it is combined as something as mundane as a pair of jeans. That is why you can add lace to even romantic rompers for a recreational but stylish outfit which can be worn for an evening tea like occasion as well as for an outing on the beach. The use of lace is often something that people tend to shy away because of the delicate nature of lace and the fact that it is expensive. But today we can get lace that is relatively inexpensive because it is no longer handmade but produced in factories. Even with this, lace tends to be an expensive item and needs to be handled with good sense.
If you are hesitating to wear an entire outfit with lace overlays, then you can use lace to make a cover up, shrug, stole or shawl. You need to look at simple shrug dresses to make you feel comfortable to know what we mean. Lace comes in all colors and can be used even in stunning all black outfits for women and can add a lot of elegance and grace to any outfit.
While we have talked about the elegance and class that lace adds to any outfit, have you ever considered that lace can also add a subtle sensuality and sexy vibe that is very exciting? The fact is lace is a material that is not fully sheer but neither is it fully opaque. It is a combination of opaque and sheer that offers the onlooker a glimpse of skin once in a while but not in an obvious way. If you have looked at the outfits worn by leading ladies of Hollywood on the red carpet, you will often find that they have made clever use of lace. This is because lace is something that offers a richness to an outfit that can rarely be replicated. It makes the wearer automatically look as if she is hiding something that she is offering you small views of.
If you are really daring and wanting to add shock value to your outfit, then one of the sure shot ways to do this is by getting a nice dress made in a nude color. This dress should fit you well, and you can add an overlay of lace in a contrasting color on to this dress. This will almost make you look as if you are just wearing the lace outfit with nothing beneath. It will have curious onlookers eager to get a better view of what lies underneath. However, we would caution you to do this only if you are confident of handling all the attention you are going to garner when you wear something like this.
Just because we have talked about the tantalizing effects that can be created with the use of lace does not mean it cannot be innocent or simple. In fact, the versatility that lace offers is one of the best qualities that it offers. You would not be wrong if you choose lace for a small girl or an innocent young teenager or even for an older woman. This is because it suits all ages and styles.
As is our usual practice, we give you plenty of images to support the hints and tips that we have given. We are sure that you will enjoy the images and find them very useful in coming up with lace outfits of your own.
