Lace dresses have been around since ancient Egyptian times and have been worn by both men and women throughout history. While lace has recently made a comeback in the fashion world, lace dresses are still primarily associated with women’s wear. Because of this, many women aren’t sure how to combine them in their wardrobe, and the fact that they’re often fitted on top and flowy on the bottom can make this challenge even more daunting. The following guide will help you learn how to combine your lace dress and look like a million bucks!
Black accessories are versatile
Black is always elegant, but can be hard to incorporate into your wardrobe if you don’t know how. Here are some tips on how to wear black lace and accessories to bring out your personality and beauty.
Wearing black lace can be beautiful and elegant, but it’s important to accessorize properly so that you don’t look like you’re going to a funeral.
A great way to add some personality and pizzazz to your outfit is by adding some eye-catching jewelry or a colorful scarf. If you’re wearing a black lace dress, try pairing it with nude heels and a clutch for a sophisticated look. You can also add a pop of color with your lipstick or nail polish. For example, if you were to wear an all black ensemble and want to add some color without drawing too much attention away from the rest of the outfit, use a bright lip gloss.
For an extra bold look, try a bright red lip stick! And for those who prefer not to have their whole face covered in makeup: For eye catching jewelry we recommend dangling earrings or gold hoops; they’ll get people talking about your style rather than what type of body care products you use.
Don’t match your jewelry
It can be tempting to want to match your jewelry to your dress, but resist the urge! Instead, try picking out one or two stand-out pieces that will really make your outfit pop. A great way to do this is to choose jewelry that contrasts with the color of your dress.
For example, if you’re wearing a black lace dress, try pairing it with some gold or silver jewelry. Not only will this help you avoid looking too matchy-matchy, but it will also add an extra touch of glamour to your look. Keep in mind that certain colors might clash with your dress: for instance, if you wear a pink lace dress, stay away from red earrings. In general, it’s best to avoid things that are similar in color. Your accessories should complement your dress instead of matching it exactly.
Match your earrings, shoes
Lace is always in style, but it can be difficult to know how to wear it without looking overdressed. The key is to match your lace dress with other accessories that are simple and understated.
For example, if you’re wearing a black lace dress, you could pair it with pearl earrings and black pumps. Or, if you’re wearing a white lace dress, you could pair it with nude heels and a clutch.
Whatever you do, avoid pairing your lace dress with overly flashy jewelry or shoes. This will only make you look tacky. Instead, let the elegance of the lace speak for itself by keeping the rest of your outfit subdued. You’ll want to take a close look at what other people in your situation are wearing so you don’t end up on the wrong side of fashion. Alternatively, you could also wear one necklace (but no more).
Similarly, stick to small diamond studs or pearl studs. If you have long hair, consider going for an updo hairstyle rather than leaving your hair down – this will help to emphasize the neckline of your lace dress and create a classy silhouette. As for makeup, keep it light with just some mascara and blush on – overdoing it will distract from the beauty of the dress.
Match your lips with your outfit
A red carpet event is the perfect time to break out that little black lace dress you’ve been dying to wear. But with such a bold choice comes the question of what color lipstick to pair it with. You can’t go wrong by matching your lips with your outfit. Here’s how to do it:
1. Start by exfoliating your lips with a sugar scrub. This will help remove any dead skin cells and give your lips a smooth canvas to work with.
2. Next, apply a lip primer. This will help your lipstick last longer and prevent it from bleeding into the fine lines around your mouth.
3. Now it’s time for the fun part: choosing your lipstick! There are so many colors to choose from that it can be hard to decide which one is right for you.
Try on several different shades and see which one makes your teeth appear whiter or best complements your eye color before settling on one shade. If you’re still feeling overwhelmed after trying out five different colors, try picking up an orange-red lipstick, this tends to work well with most people because it flatters everyone’s skin tone. The key is just finding the shade that feels right for you.
Don’t Forget About Stockings
Wearing stockings with your lace dress is a must if you want to avoid looking trashy. The key is to find the right pair of stockings. They should be sheer enough to show off the delicate details of the lace, but not so sheer that they look like lingerie.
The best bet is to go with a classic black or nude pair. For extra coverage, opt for a thigh-high style. It’s easy to tuck them into your shoes.
You can also choose a shorter option and let them peek out from under the hem of your skirt. If you have longer legs, opt for one size up in order to have plenty of coverage on your thighs.
If you have shorter legs, it’s better to choose a shorter pair that will fit nicely on top of your shoes without going over the tops of them.
Don’t forget about the bag
The right bag can make or break your whole outfit. A lace dress is already pretty feminine and delicate, so you don’t want to go too overboard with a big, chunky bag. Instead, opt for something small and dainty that will complement the dress without overwhelming it. A few good options are a clutch, crossbody, or even a shoulder bag.
And if you do choose a bigger bag, be sure to keep its volume in mind: when choosing what type of shoe to wear with your outfit, you should aim for more compact styles. Otherwise, the bag will overpower everything else in the ensemble.
