When it comes to casual dressing, most people will turn to a stylish top and a pair of jeans, and when it comes to dressing for more formal occasion, a lot of women will have a dress in their wardrobe that instantly comes to mind. But what about occasions or situations that call for smart-casual dress? Or what if you simply want to add a bit more elegance or sophistication to your everyday style?
There are a few ways that you could change up your regular style. You could try adding new and different accessories to your wardrobe, such as statement or pendant necklaces, as well as unusual bracelets and rings. However, another way to add something to your regular style would be to look out for little touches of lace.
Lace is a delicate material and has become extremely popular in recent years; regularly used as inserts, overlays, and added touches. Items of clothing that have touches of lace can really elevate an otherwise everyday outfit, and add an element of elegance to and formal outfit, as well as any casual one, without appearing too over the top or overdressed.
Choosing a few items of clothing that have touches of lace will help you to stay on trend, and help you to feel that extra bit stylish ‘put together’. There are a lot of lace options in the stores these days, and it can be a little hard to know where to start, but try to stick to your usual styles and you should find a lace addition that you love.
