Texture is doing a lot of talking this spring, and lace is one of our favorites. Gone are the days when ‘lace’ was synonymous with ‘grandma’s fashion’—now, lace is all about a sense of sexy demure. Whether in neutral color pallets or bold, eye-catching hues, its intricate, weave-like appearance has a way to transform your style into something unique.
And what we love best about a good lace piece is its wearability and flexibility. Don’t let its delicate appearance fool you; lace can be extremely versatile, whether dressed up with pumps and a blazer or dressed down with your favorite easy tee and ankle booties. An added bonus? Purchase your favorite lace skirts and dresses now and pair them with tights and a knit sweater for the ultimate cozy look. Yet, come the warmer months, these flirty textiles are ideal to transition you into the spring.
With spring knocking at our door, we decided to search the web and find the best lace skirts and dresses for the season. Whether you’re looking for pieces to spruce up your work wardrobe, or fun and flirty mini-skirts to don on the weekends, we found the perfect lace skirt or dress for you.
Pencil and Work Skirts
Create a twist on the basic black pencil skirt, and brighten up your office with eye-catching colored lace skirts. Bold blues and spring-y yellows, when paired with your favorite boyfriend blazer and neutral top, state ‘professional chic.’ For a more muted option, try a neutral skirt with a tad more flare.
