Look We Love: Ladylike Lace

I never thought I’d be saying this, but my style seems to be evolving in a very ladylike direction. I think it started when I got thick, blunt bangs. Somehow, my grungy, edgy aesthetic looked too severe and I had to soften things up. And I’m liking it!

There are many ladylike styles I’m loving, and I’m sure Ill be writing about them all, so stay tuned, but topping the list is lace. Not the sheer, sexy sort of lace. No, I’m talking about the old school, ladylike lace that radiates romance and vintage charm. The sweet, feminine feel of these pieces is a bit unexpected on the modern girl and can look incredibly cool and impossibly chic when styled right.

Read on to check out my favorite ladylike lace pieces!


Love the Muse Lace Dress, $935, NOW: $654.50. It’s a bit pricey, but so, so gorgeous.


Reformed by the Reformation Blanche Dress, $78. Pile on some chunky jewelry pieces to keep this number from looking too bridal.


Forever 21 Crochet Lace Skirt, $19.80. A sweet style that can be sophisticated for day and sexy for night with a few style switches.


TopShop Lace Liz Flippy Dress, $98. An absolute classic. Belt it, layer over it, pile on statement accessories, the options are endless!


TBA Lace Pinafore Bib Pleated Dress, $251. This dress combines two of our favorite trends: lace and pleats! Love!


Equipment Lace Blouse, $198; NOW: $99. A classic staple you will wear for years and years.

A Wear Lace Tier Side Dress, $71. This dress is both quaint and totally now. Play up the quiet charm with more feminine flourishes or toughen it up with edgy extras.


Mod Cloth Chasing Clouds Skirt, $65. This ethereal maxi is an absolute must this season!

I can’t wait for it to warm up so I can wear flirty and flowy dresses like these. I love the A Wear Lace Tier Side Dress and the forever 21 skirt, the combination of lace and scallop edges is so beautifully feminine! What a perfect collection of dresses, thank you! Now all I need to do is organize a garden tea party so I can wear them.
