Fashion’s Lacy Affair and How You Can Sport It!

Fashion’s Lacy Affair and How You Can Sport It!


It’s feminine and oh-so-pretty…it can also sometimes be given a very racy edge. Celebrities in India and all across the globe have rocked this look lately on the red carpet. Can you guess what we’re talking about? Yes…it is LACE! Be it cocktail dresses, flirty shorts or scalloped minis, this style’s been in a major wardrobe rotation. Here is a list of celebrities and the lacy fashion that they are sporting:


Deepika Padukone

This former model and actress makes sure she’s always in tune with the latest trends and it seems like she favours the lace-look. She was spotted recently wearing a lace off-shoulder overlay dress, accessorised with a simple clutch.


Taylor Swift

At the CMA 2013 music festival, this country girl performed with Tim McGraw and showed the world that lace outfits needn’t always be ultra-girly. She was seen wearing a white sleeveless lace top that had small golden button detailing at its collar, teamed up with high waist glitter shorts.


Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge is known to stay bang-on trend and continues to do so through her pregnancy. She was seen wearing a made to order daisy lace dress that had a silvery grey ribbon detailing. She teamed it up with a soft peach coloured silk jacket and accessorised her look with court shoes, a box clutch and her signature cocktail hat and birdcage veiling.


Sarah Silverman

A comedian known for her sense of humour and her quirky sense of style, she was seen wearing a beautiful white lace bustier dress with a lace overlay at the American Film Institute’s 41st Life Achievement Award Gala. She wore a black sash over her dress that was cinched at her waist, defining her narrow waist.


Eva Longoria

Her appearance at the 70th Golden Globes in 2013 wearing a long sleeved black lace dress stole many a hearts. This floor-length chiffon dress was tailor made for her and had lace ruffle embellishments with a V-neckline and backless back style.


If you love the quintessential feminine dressing, a lace dress goes unrivalled in its knack to be sultry as well as girly. While a small touch of lace can feel delicate and dainty, a lace gown or a body-con dress can rocket one into the bombshell territory.


When going lacy, here are some suggestions that will help you incorporate lace in your wardrobe:


a) Remember to accessorise

Team up your outfit with metallic pumps for a fancy occasion or if you want to look casual, wear a pair of bright ballerinas. Try wearing big statement necklaces with peplum tops.


b) Mix textures and prints

Add a bit of print and texture with lace to make it look fresh and funky. Team up a lace dress or lace skirt with leopard print belt or wear a leather jacket over a lace overlay dress. Fashion and fun go hand in hand, so don’t be afraid to mix and match!


c) Whenever in doubt, opt for neutrals

Keira Knightley paired her elegant, knee-length green dress along with a pair of nude pumps on the Tonite Show with Jay Leno. Neutral accessories let the lace standout to be the prime focal point. For a neutral colour lace top, team it up with dark skinny denim jeans to look super chic.
