Rule # 25: How to wear lace.

Lace is one of the trends for this season and we've seen it in most of the catwalk shows around the world. Wearing lace can give you a girly chic look but it could easily cross the line and look cheap and dated. You can wear lace to work and take it from day wear to a night out with your girlfriends by adding some accessories.

If you haven't worn lace before and are you're thinking of buying some pieces, bear these rules in mind:
  • As I said before, lace has a girly quality to it so avoid pairing it with florals, bows and other feminine pieces. If you are not a very girly girl who doesn't like the romantic style, you can toughen up your look by wearing boots, a leather jacket or edgy accessories.
  • Look for thicker or lined lace materials. When the lace is too thin it has potential to unravel at the seams and look tatty.
  • Don't be afraid of colour. Colour gives lace a younger look.
  • You can also wear lace to the office. Just use one lace piece and balance the rest of your outfit with more conservative pieces. For example, wear a lace pencil skirt with a simple shell or button-up blouse. Another option is to wear a lace A-line dress with a fitted jacket or a cardigan and a plain sandal or pump. Stick to neutral colours.
  • Keep everything else simple. Pearls will date your look so use modern accessories.
