The Edit: A Versatile Little Top

Oct 5, 2017

Lace is often thought of as an evening fabric, for cocktail dresses or lingerie.  But lace can add a contemporary flare and a bit of texture to any attire.  Gone are the dowdy floral laces of old, replaced with modern crochets and geometric patterns.

This Catherine Malandrino Odette blouse ($98) is perfectly pretty.  The delicate ladder stitching and ruffled accents make this a unique top.  This pieced-lace top ($45 also in petite) from Express is another awesome choice.  For something really bold, check out this black circle-lace peplum top ($100).  Plus-size? This Michael Kors lace-yoke top ($98) is a lovely.

    This is gorgeous but I’m curious if there’s any way to wear a bra with this without defaulting to a strapless. How do others handle sheer shoulders like this?
