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.

Game On: What to Wear Tailgating

Show off your team spirit — and your personal style — this tailgating season with looks that couple your love of football and fashion.

  1. Winning Style: Thanks to chicka~d, oversize logo tees are a thing of the past. We layered a leather jacket over this one-shoulder dress for a touch of edge (and warmth). Booties keep your feet comfortable, while a crossbody bag allows hands-free snacking and socializing.
  2. Sporty Chic: Who says game-day gear can’t be on-trend and team-oriented? Simply snag a pair of colored jeans in your school’s signature shade and finish with an elegantly draped sweater. Complete the look with statement accessories — like riding boots and a chunky necklace. Festive nails solidify your commitment to the home team.
  3. Spirited Shimmer: Elevate the tailgating experience with a flirty dress (in your college’s color, of course). We chose a swingy silhouette with a touch of shine to commemorate the big win. A dressy yet easy-to-carry bag keeps your essentials close. Pumps or flats complete the look, just be sure to consider the terrain at your tailgate.

Wedding Day Style: Here Comes The Bride

While the most important part of your wedding style is of course the dress, accessories can only enhance your radiant glow. For a unique touch with a retro feel, try out an eye-catching fascinator. If you are wearing a veil during your ceremony, you can transition into a headpiece for the reception. And don’t forget about carrying your wedding essentials (blotting paper, compact, lipstick, perfume). A lovely evening bag is a functional piece for the night and a keepsake you can save to remember your special day. Check out our hair accessoires and evening bags to complete your bridal style.
