Just Add a Touch of Lace


Images via Pinterest

Style Theory: Sometimes all you have to do to 'pretty' up a day to day outfit is to add a touch of lace, it changes a plain look in to something quite interesting, delicate and beautiful. I love lace tops worn with denim jackets or jeans, mixed up with velvets or leather, it adds a feminine twist to tough pieces.

A lace top or blouse looks great worn with fine gold jewellery, this season think layered pendants and gold hoop earrings then keep everything else dressed down, so just a a pair of ankle length blue jeans, trainers and boots and a biker jacket, leopard or camel coat (I love a camel coat and lace with a leopard print bag so effortlessly classy) 

Here are my favourite lace tops on the high street now:
& Other Stories £59
The high neck, the classic lace detail makes this blouse a must have in any wardrobe. Perfect with jeans, leopard print coat and ankle boots..
&Other Stories £59
This is a full on lace number (I would wear a little black vest top underneath) but so chic with tailored tux trousers (I love these ones at Me+Em) black court heels and a velvet/tux blazer - the perfect Christmas look.
Topshop £45
A lace and embroidery top, super pretty on, would look great under a pair of black dungarees and heels for a night out.
Topshop £38
Add a pop of colour to your outfit with a beautiful red lace top, calm thing down with a pair of pale blue jeans (ankle length) and a pair of flat, sparkly pumps.
Topshop £36
The flower print looks beautiful on this lace blouse, it wold look great with black jeans and black, leather high heeled ankle boots.
Topshop £39
This is the softest most comfortable blouse on, it is cheesecloth like fabric, it does come up slightly short so best worn with high cut jeans or trousers.
Monsoon £59
Navy is incredibly flattering against the face, this would look great with pale blue jeans and gold shoes, navy and gold is a match made in heaven.
Monsoon £59
A beautiful, classic lace shirt, the most pristine bright white, dress down with jeans and velvet heels for the perfect outfit.
Mango £9.99
A t-shirt style top, I obviously wouldn't get away with a bralet but would wear with a black vest top underneath. Wear with all black to make it look expensive and classic.
Mango £39.99
This is so up my street, lace on a boxy sweater, perfect with jeans and trainers..
Asos £35
Love the vintage look of this top, I bought similar from Topshop 10 years ago and still love it so much.
All Saints at Asos £128
Again I love the antique look of this lace, it is super pricey but looks stunning.

I am a huge fan of lace and am looking to add a few more pieces to my wardrobe as much as I love sparkles, lace has it's place at Christmas!
