SISJ FASHION > Forget the L.B.D, it’s all about the L.L.D!
Once reserved for pretty party socks, your grandma’s doilies and table cloths, lace has once again made a big fashion comeback this season. To ensure you make a fresh statement when styling your outfit, it’s essential to combine the right accessories, and ATTITUDE! Don’t be afraid to introduce colour, digital prints and edgy styling.
HOW TO WEAR LACE: To achieve an edgy, sophisticated and feminine outfit you need to style it back with funky accessories and other trends. Simple styling decisions like the addition of black ankle boots or metal jewellery will toughen-up this once-childhood staple. While I am definitely partial to a monochromatic palette when styling the perfect lace outfit, a pop of colour is definitely an option. With any outfit I like to work backwards from my ‘hero’ piece. For example, if I decide to wear a lace dress or skirt (like below inspo images), I will then introduce less significant pieces. By this I mean, a simple wool jumper or a plain ankle boot and bag. Every outfit must have a hero/leader so it doesn’t become over-styled and confusing.

SISJ’S FAVE L.L.D & OUTFIT BREAKDOWN:
My four current faves are very different in their interpretation of lace and the look/style of the dress. All feminine and classic, these dresses are perfect for day-to-day lace styling as well as event/cocktail.
