I don’t know what it was about lace dresses — actually, I do know. When lace is done right (think more crochet-like, cutout patterns), it adds so much visual interest to an outfit! There’s not much really you have to do after that — simple heels and a classic purse will do just fine. But, if you’re like me and want to take it to the next level, you could style it with a straw bag and printed heels for even more layers of dimension.
If there’s one place I swear by when it comes to lace dresses, it’s Chicwish. I’ve been collaborating with them for years now and while some of the pieces I receive do sometimes have a weird fit, I’ve never been once disappointed by one of their lace dresses (see here and here for more examples). There’s something so timelessly feminine about a beautifully made lace dress — everyone needs at least one (or five … or maybe fifteen) of them in their closets!
