Lace For Days

One of the most sensual fabrics ever created, is lace. Skin peaking through the hollow material is wholly feminine and sultry. No wonder it’s is so closely associated with lingerie.

When I look for a timeless piece to add to my wardrobe, almost every time I end up picking lace as the fabric. Ever since it made it’s debut on the fashion scene, it has never gone out of style. Even though this particular top is a little more “à la mode”, it will still be on trend years from now.

I’m really picky when it comes to lace. I feel it’s really easy to tell the difference between cheaply made lace and that of better quality. Unfortunately, cheap looking lace, even just in small details, can ruin an entire outfit. If the material and the pattern are of a bad grade they can instantly look low-end and cheap. So make sure that the material isn’t flimsy and there’s no loose threads flying left and right.

IMG_0595My favorite part of this top is the sleeves. The ruffles and bell shape add a touch of boho to the top. Because there’s so much sheer going on, the sleeves help balancing out the sexiness with a touch of free spirt bohemian.

As a crop top is pretty revealing all by itself, I like to wear it with high waisted bottoms. In my opinion, showing little skin is sensual, a little too much is un-lady like and can be cheap. These high waisted pants came in handy in so any occasion. They’re classic cut, so you can wear them to brunch with the gals, on a date or even a job interview. They’re definitely a wardrobe essential.

Do you love lace as much as I do? What’s your favorite fabric? I’d love to know!

    I love lace – although given that I worked as a lingerie fitter for nearly two years, I guess that’s not surprising! I love the cut of this top – it’s sensual, but like you said, doesn’t show too much skin – perfect for pairing with high waisted bottoms!
    I think silk is probably my favourite fabric, it is so simple but so elegant!

    WOW! This look is so stunning. Sexy yet feminine. I totally agree with lace – such a sultry fabric but you HAVE to go with the high-quality lace. The neckline and ruffled sleeves are incredible! x Shannon

    I am IN LOVE with this outfit! I’m also super picky about lace and find that it often doesn’t quite fit right and lay flat. This top looks like it was tailored to your body. Stunning!

    Lace looks beautiful, I don’t have many lace pieces as it is not my favourite fabric. I prefer cotton or silky clothes more 🙂 x

    Lovely top and shoes. My favourite fabric would be cotton. I like it’s versatility BUT lace is definitely right up there. Like you said it’s totally sexy and a little bit of skin keeps them guessing ; ) .
