Last week I did a little post on how to work the top-to-toe lace trend in an attempt to coax myself into making a purchase on this lovely Topshop skirt (based on Burberry's amazing runway show for SS14 last year). It got me thinking about how useful a lace skirt could be, especially after doing a little spy on Pinterest for outfit ideas. That followed on to a little edit of the best on the market at the moment (although clear favourites for me are a pink River Island one as worn above and the mint green Zara one below).
outfit 1: the outnet denim chambray shirt + zara pencil skirt / outfit 2: topshop pencil skirt + victoria beckham shirt / outfit 3: house of holland skirt + james perse grey tee / outfit 4: burberry prorsum pencil skirt + miu miu crepe vest
As you can see from the pics I found, you really can wear them with anything. There is a real mix of all out glam and dressed-up-down (for me, as you can imagine, I want to wear it with my grey tees, denim shirts and breton stripes). The skirts are so detailed that you don't really need to do anything else with your outfit, let it do the talking. Or saying that it looks fab with a mix of texture so adding leather (love the punked up outfit below) or even from floral prints (as in the first pic) work really well...
So, a lace pencil skirt might not be such a daft purchase after all... What do you think?
