Who doesn’t love a nice lacy dress in the summer? It’s feminine, it’s elegant, and it’s perfect for those long, warm days. Lace is an easy way to pull off day-to-night dressing, as it’s sophisticated enough for work yet laid-back enough for all your off-duty needs.

It’s been a long winter, and most of us have left our lace get-ups hung up for quite a while. So if you need a quick refresher on how to pull off one of our top summer trends, we’ve got you covered.

Lace 101: How to Wear & Where to WearWhere to wear lace? Anywhere. Wear it to work on a smart pencil skirt or flowy dress, or wear lace to a daytime party in a nice maxi or sundress. Wear lace in the evening on a mini dress, and wear it to a formal event in a cocktail dress.

How to wear lace? That’s the easy part. A lace dress speaks for itself—little to no accessorizing needed. Just team your new go-to lace dress with a fantastic pair of summer shoes and a cute clutch or crossbody and your summer look is complete.
