1 Dress, 2 Ways: How to Take Lace From Day to Night

We love lace paired with equally ladylike pieces — but the traditionally feminine texture is more versatile than you think. Don’t always play it safe. Take your favorite lace dress from demure to dangerous with these quick styling tips.

  1. Swap a tailored blazer for a moto jacket with leather sleeves. Though both layers add flattering structure, the moto silhouette puts a tough-girl spin on the polished dress.
  2. Shift out of neutral and into shine. T-strap pumps with metallic trim provide luster that won’t overwhelm the rest of your look.
  3. Top it off with a hint of drama. A gemstone drop is perfect for the office — but shoulder-dusting styles say you’re ready for after-hours fun.
  4. Pile on texture, mix prints. This python-embossed shoulder bag adds irresistible texture yet coordinates in tonal shades of black and grey.
