How to style the lace maxi dress

The lace dress suggests a mixture of sophistication and purity and a shift version is versatile enough to be dressed up or down, feminised or brutalised, chic or casual.

1. Keep it simple

Don’t crowd the intricacies of lace with fussy accessories – keep them to a minimum. Choose heels for elegance and symmetry, or be more shouty with block-heeled ankle boots beneath a flimsy midi or maxi. You will need nothing else!

2. Start slowly

If you shy away from an all-over effect, stick to filigree trims and details instead – edge floral prints with black lace.  Or simply carry a lace-covered handbag – make it a focal point by plumping for a bold colour.

Introduce openwork sleeves or a crocheted kimono.  Before you know it you’ll be hooked, and lacework will creep into your wardrobe unannounced.

3. Vary your options

Simple doesn’t have to mean basic though.  Add a touch (or two) of class by throwing a blazer over your frock.  Try off-white over deep blue, and finish with a string of pearls and satin heels for simplicity with flair.

Go for a full-skirted dress with a narrow belt or a body-hugger with a pencil skirt, and pair with a denim jacket for some street style.

Alternatively, you can opt for a lace top maxi dress, so that the lace isn’t the whole way through. This definitely is a toned down version of the full lace dress.

4. Night and day

A lacy bodice will see your little black number ready for when the cocktails come your way.  Earlier, be day-time demure in white with taupe gladiator sandals, or make a statement by adding black footwear and a fedora instead.

5. Experiment with colours

Even though we’re saying don’t overdo it, some thought will lift your outfit beyond the ordinary.  Offset pastels with similar pale shades, such as pallid pink lace maxi dress, baby blue and beige or cream and red lace maxi dress to suggest a well thought-out total look.  And red lace or hot pink would be stunning!
