It’s probably a safe bet that you have a little black dress tucked away in your closet. But there’s another wardrobe staple every woman should invest in: the white lace dress. At once feminine and cool, it’s a summer staple that you can wear everywhere from the office to a weekend date.
After digging through photos of some of our favorite fashion girls wearing the style, we learned a few styling tricks. First, keep accessories to a minimum. The intricate dresses speak for themselves so all you need to add is a cool bag, sandals, and pair of sunglasses. Next, keep the proportions in check. If you’re wearing a short style, make sure it has sleeves to balance out the look. And finally, try something unexpected. If you want to offset the femininity with a little streetwear edge, add a pair of high-top sneakers.
