From dresses to tops, celebrities have been sporting the lace trend in various sexy and subtle ways. If you love the idea of the adorable vintage-inspired blouses for women, tap into one of the most dramatic fashion trends with our pick of the best celebrity looks.
Ashley Greene: lace blouse + cropped pants
The beautiful Twilight star Ashley Greene hit the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in NYC in a black see-through lace top with bell sleeves and gothic embroidery. Her fashion choice was widely commented and created a lot of stir. Ashley went for a monochromatic look: a peek-a-boo Wes Gordon blouse was paired off with a black bandeau bra and stylish cropped pants from Wes Gordon too. Black peep-toe pumps completed the lust-worthy all-black look.
Fashion tip: if you aren’t shy to bare it all and dare to follow in Ashley’s footsteps, wear a tube top underneath a lace blouse. Otherwise, a black or nude cami will work under your lace blouse too. Cigarette leg pants are fine, but think about wearing matching leather pants instead to channel your inner tough-girl. To finish off the look, wear a bold liptick, a gold cocktail ring (check the latest jewellery trends first) and sky-scraper heels for maximum effect.
Rihanna: lace blouse + pencil skirt
Looking ever so elegant and stylish, Rihanna went dining in a white Balmain lace blouse with strong shoulder pads. She paired her decadent 80s-inspired lace top with a black and white striped Boy Band of Outsiders suspender skirt and Christian Louboutin pointed toe heels. The “Diamonds” singer chose chunky earrings to complement the elegant look. Just one more bit of trivia that helps put that into perspective: the same black exaggerated shoulder top was worn by Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.
Fashion tip: to make a dramatic impression in a cotton-lace top team it with a sleek pencil skirt for an office look with edge. The glamorous curve contouring skirt doesn’t have to be necessarily black. Dig into the latest trends and look for a Baroque chic, leather or tartan skirt. This lovely little party top would also work with fierce studded heels and a tuxedo blazer for an evening ensemble with rock-chic appeal.
