Our lovely lace dresses and skirts tend to be on our list just for evening occasions. But let's get them out of the closet and give them more of an outing.
For daytime, layer them with either a long blazer or sweater over the top and you have yourself an outfit that is both chic and more casual, and a standout from the pack.
Black lace can be layered with dark moody colours like plums or olive, keeping the contrast to a minimum.
Also try putting a soft coloured contrasting slip under the lace - this does 2 things - firstly shows off more detail on the lace - and secondly, makes the outfit a bit more casual so you can expand its wear during the day. Then throw over a shirt, knotted at the waist and you've got yourself a unique outfit.
Lace is a lot more versatile than you think - experiment!
