Lacey extras are such a fun and easy way to inject an outfit with a hit of elegance; it’s no wonder it has been such a trend this summer. From full-on lace pieces to using lace as an accent trim, you can find your own way to make lace a special feature in your wardrobe. Here are some pieces that you could dress up or down:

Lace ShortsShorts

Shorts with a crochet lace overlay and elastic waist are perfect for summer. They combine incredible comfort with elegant chic in the most elevated way. Toss them on with a chambray button up and flat sandals for a casual outing. Or, play up the dressy appeal with a silky top and a pair of high-heeled sandals.

Lace Crop TopCrop Top

Telegraph a little European glamour by pairing a lace crop top with a pleated chiffon maxi skirt; this look can take you from brunch to shopping to a fancy date night without a wardrobe change. To bring it down a notch, swap the skirt for a pair of dark wash denim skinnies and a sleek pair of pumps. Instant fashion moment.

Lace Mini DressMini Dress

Take lace to a boho-chic level by using it in a long-sleeved shift. It can be the accent trim on the sleeves and hemline, or it can be a complete overlay. Either way, the look is all about insouciance. Give it a tossed-on look with a simple pair of thong sandals and a floppy wide-brimmed felt hat. Dress it up while staying down to earth by pairing it with a set of gladiator sandals—so Mediterranean chic.

Lace Midi Pencil SkirtMidi Pencil Skirt

“Dressed down” may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a lace skirt, but the season’s lace mini-gone-midi pencil skirts are perfect with slouchy pieces like a chunky sweater. It’s that perfect offbeat look that works because it’s so unexpected.
