Lace – a French thing, a graceful embellishment to any outfits. I always felt like it isn’t for everyone, because sometimes it just feels like too much for casual wear due to its noble lineage – it requires advanced handcraft to put together, and it’s seen very often in haute couture and wedding dresses. I also feel like although elegant, the garment itself looks very busy, and it always ends up stealing the focus of the look instead of complimenting the complexion.
I purchased this collared blue lace top from Zara, thinking I should add some mature and sexy vibes to my wardrobe. How did I do? Although with the addition of the Peter Pan collar, I might’ve ended up looking more cute and preppy than mature. A key suggestion is to always wear skin colored garment or underwear beneath any colored sheer lace top to avoid having too much going on, or else it really takes away from the design, and further pans the simplicity.
The fashion police says you should not have more than three colors in one outfit, so I took the liberty of wearing a red lipstick for a pop of color without feeling too sorry about it. 🙂
Hope you liked the outfit! If you’re wondering about the beautiful setting, this is the Cathedral nearby my house, will definitely come back for more shoots in the future. 🙂
