Every so often I like to add a little drama to my look. Rather than opt for my typical go-to pink lip & comfy casual style, I’ll think out of the box and opt for something a little more…daring. I recently had one of these “dare to wear” sort of days after spotting this pretty black H&M lace dress. I was instantly drawn in by the delicate long lace sleeves, the high-low hemline & the exposed back-zipper, it’s totally un-like anything I own which is why it intrigued me so much.
For our dinner our to La Régalade, I decided to pair my new lace with a few metallic favourites that have been sitting in my closet waiting to be styled. I don’t know if you’re like me in this way, but sometimes when I purchase something that I love so much, and find so beautiful, I wait for occasions to wear them. It’s a habit I’ve been trying to break since I’d like to wear my favourite things all the time, rather than wait for a big night out or an exciting event to debut my favourite things. After I received this lovely metallic bag for my birthday last week, I was so excited to style it along with my bronzed boots
that I purchased a few months ago but had been waiting to wear out.
Just like any other black dress, the little black lace dress is a total classic. While the lace makes it stand-out more, and the sheer lace sleeves along with the hi-lo hemline of this dress give a bit of an edge, in general – you could style this dress with any type of shoe or accessory.
If you’re looking to create a more unique though, try pairing your lace LBD with bold metallic pieces, like a pair of metallic boots – or a great metallic bag. These pieces are bold, but neutral, and will create a really one-of-a-kind look outfit.
