As the spring gets closer, the weather gets warmer, and the time comes to dress lighter. When worn right, lace and crocheted looks can be feminine and chic– especially in pastel hues. Try out one of these styles to add interest to an ordinary look.
Stores like Banana Republic, Forever 21, Sears and Target are stocking up on tees and tops with lace sewn over the fabric. These detailed shirts are the perfect way to spice up an outfit. Want to make a work look more stylish? Layer this under a plain cardigan. Trying to look cute when going out? A simple covered top is cute and sexy without being too revealing.
Feel like that plain blouse needs a little extra something? Layering a crocheted half-shirt, like this springy pink floral one from Nordstrom, is simple, yet stylish. For a going out look, find a darker over shirt in this style to spice things up.
A paler lace/crocheted top really stands out when layered over a dark top.
Free People’s purple lace tank is a bohemian take on this girly trend. Available at stores like Carson’s and Lord and Taylor, this long shirt would pair perfectly with black skinny jeans and a denim or dark leather jacket for a night out. Wear it in the daytime with blue jeans and a pale-colored cardigan.
Going to a wedding or taking a trip to a tea house? A lacy dress like this one from Nordstrom is gorgeous for a sunny day. Wear it with a cardigan, pair of cute flats or nude pumps for a chic and simple look.
