How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek – Lace Day to Night


When Jamie and I were discussing options for lace posts she mentioned taking lace pieces from day to night. Great idea Jamie! Figuring out how to wear something during the day and then transitioning the same piece(s) for nighttime is something I struggle with regularly. With summer creeping up on us it’s a little easier to take pieces from day to night because the warmer weather allows for more casual night outfits, and since lace is already on the dressy side changing it up for night is pretty simple. The biggest and easiest change you can make is to add sleek pieces and heels.

Lace Day to Night

1. Stela 9 Diego Mini Backpack

2. J.Crew Two-tone Skinny Rope Belt

3. Madewell Denim Cutoff Shorts in Linen Wash

4. Jessica Simpson Rangle Sandals

5. Madewell Lace Blossom Top

6. Current/Elliott The Jean Legging mid-rise jeans

7. Topshop Scallop Edge Jacket

8. Boutique 9 Justine Patent Leather Pumps

This lace shirt is the perfect choice for casual days and nights. For daytime, take it super casual with sandals and shorts, adding bold color. For nighttime, add skinny black jeans and black heels. Unlike during the day, the lace shirt should be the color focus for nighttime.

Lace Day to Night

1. Gorjana Arrow Wrap Ring

2. Hive & Honey Three Band Ring Set

3. Rose Pierre Seafaring Dreams Rings

4. Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bag

5. Madewell The Leather Lace Sandal

6. Madewell Meadowlace Dress

7. Holst + Lee L’Interdit Necklace

8. Cynthia Vincent Banker’s Clutch

9. Zara High Heel Shoes with Ankle Strap

My favorite of all the outfits! I love the simplicity of a lace dress, especially a shift dress like this one. Keeping with the relaxed nature of this dress (think hippies) I went for day and night outfits that are easy going. For day, add brown leather sandals and cross body purse to ground the lighthearted lace dress, but pile on some rings to keep the outfit fun. The night outfit reminds me of something to be worn to an art gallery, very abstract and definitely playful.

Lace Day to Night

1. Cheap Monday Exposed Sunglasses

2. J.Crew Farmer’s Market Tote

3. Madewell Collar Tee in Nautical Stripe

4. Lacoste Ziane Slip WJA

5. Modcloth Seafoam Scallop Skirt

6. Topshop Cropped Soft Cami

7. Diane von Furstenberg Jujette Asymmetrical Sandals

8. AllSaints Tomlin Cropped Leather Biker Jacket

9. Samudra Rocky Point Pouch

The first outfit reminds me of a preppy tennis outfit with slip-ons and a tucked in collared tank top. The colored lace skirt works well with preppy pieces – ideal for a sunny day of shopping. To take this lace skirt from day to night, add a soft cami and colorful heels. Add a relaxed leather jacket and fun clutch before you leave the house and you’re good to go!
