Ready to add a little sex appeal to your fall look? Black lace is just the trend to add to your wardrobe. Look for simple, sophisticated shapes that show a peek of skin (but not too much) for an elegant look. Don’t be afraid to wear lace for daytime (try something fun like mixing a lace top with a denim jacket) and mixing it up for evening (a lace cocktail dress with a leather jacket) for an approach that is youthful and on trend.
1. Do Wear Lace as a Trim
Not ready to commit to a major piece in lace? Try a lace-trimmed blouse or skirt for a hint of feminine lace.
2. Don’t Wear Lace in a Trendy Silhouette
Lace shorts? Cute for younger girls but looks faddish and too trendy after 40 (same with things like lace gloves and lace hair bows which are too little girlish.)
3. Do Opt for Lace Pieces with Structure.
Keep lace sophisticated by opting for pieces with some tailoring or construction.
4. Don’t Let Your Bra Show Under Lace
See-through lace shirts? We’re way past that at this age. Either wear a camisole or opt for lined lace pieces instead.
5. Do Try Lace Shoes and Accessories
The perfect way to try a trend after 40? Put it on your feet. Lace booties or shoes are sexy, but totally age appropriate. Just be sure to pair lace shoe with anything except more lace (one piece is enough.)
6. Don’t Choose Lace Pieces That Look LIke Undergarments
Black lace corset? Perfect for the bedroom, but not so much for in public. Cover up the super sexy pieces and choose something that’s more elegant and refined like a lined lace dress or lace blouse.
7. Do Try a Lace Shell
One of the easiest and most refined ways to wear lace now is to pop on a lace shell under a jacket. If the lace is too see-through simply add a shaping camisole underneath for coverage and support.
8. Don’t Overdo the Frill with Lace
Lace with tiers, bows or flowers? Too much frill for one look. Keep lace as the main feminine element so you don’t look you overdosed on girly.
9. Do Try Lace in Simple Shapes
A simple, clean-lined silhouette like a shift or a tunic looks age-appropriate in lace.
