I like lace, but it can tricky. You have to be careful about the style and fabric of your lace pieces or you can wind up with a nip slip or unintentionally look like Madonna circa 1984. Boy toy, anyone? Don’t get me wrong… In 1984 I was totally down with that look and I have been a huge Madonna fan for years. I just don’t want to do it again.
If you are going to wear lace to the office you need to ensure that there is enough coverage. Nobody wants to see your boobies at work. Cover the twins up. Wear a camisole. Also, you need to ensure that the rest of your outfit is less extra. Translation? Keep it conservative elsewhere. If you can go straight to the club from work, you need to take it down a notch.
I paired this peplum styled lace shirt with a conservative black wool pencil skirt, opaque tights and ankle booties. I personally think that sheer hosiery would be too much skin with the lace top for work. I’m not a fan of sheer hosiery anyway, but that opaque tights really help to keep things on the up and up. Let’s keep it classy, ladies.
Wearing: Top – H&M (sold out), Skirt – J. Crew Factory, Necklace – J. Crew (old), Booties – Loeffler Randall, Bag – Coach (old), Sunnies – Kate Spade (old), Coat – Old Navy (ancient).
Thanks so much for stopping by! How is everyone handling this whole back to work business?
