A hint of lace can be as powerful as showing cleavage to your outfit. While cleavage shouts bombshell, lace is a subtle way to show off a sexy side of you. Sometimes hinting a bit of flesh is more seductive than showing it off all at once. DVF’s Pre Fall 2013, Ernestina Printed Lace Detail Dress, is something that I feel is classy yet sexy. I love the asymmetrical lace clashing with it’s silk pattern. The lace detailing runs along the chest area to arms which leads to an imagination of what’s beneath the dress. If full lace it too much, try mixing it up with contrasting textures for a tougher look. Here I styled it with a denim vest to casual it up. You can also try leather jackets, faux fur vest or a blazer.
Styling tips : To create an office look you can pair the dress with a simple navy jacket. After work you can use a skinny belt and adjust the skirt length for a cocktail dress look. Make sure you bring a colorful clutch for a pop of color.
