Yesterday I mentioned that I purposely left this lace dress unlined so that I could play with different things underneath it. I have a few slip dresses, but I’ll probably be making a few more from this pattern and just leaving the tie off the middle. This is a great way to play with different looks from one piece – a change of colors and accessories and this dress can go through all the seasons – even winter!
For the first look I put a hot pink slip dress and added a bright cobalt blue patent leather belt and gold flats.
I think it’s a pretty look for a spring event – the lace is feminine and playful with the bright colors.
Heels would probably look great too, except I’m not often a heels girl. I like to be comfortable.
To go even more casual, you can do the essential Texas spring style of adding your cowgirl boots (mine are vintage) and a denim jacket.
Since I wanted a more subtle color for this look, I put a yellow slip dress under. This dress is actually really bright, but the lace tones it down.
And finally, I actually wore this dress to dinner last month at Alt in Salt Lake City. Over a gray turtleneck sweater dress and with fleece lined leggings and boots, it was pretty but warm, which is important because I get cold so easy.
I added a silver tassle necklace, because I’m not quite all aboard the gold jewelry trend yet, and I felt comfortable and myself wearing this.
So there we go – three ways to wear a lace dress. Hope you have a great weekend!Get access to my free pattern gallery - sign up for my newsletter!
