When I think of essentials for a summer wardrobe, the light lace dress instantly comes to mind. I can not think of any other piece of clothing that is more girly, flirty or summery than this type of dress. Dolce & Gabbana's S/S 2011 collection was filled with the most dreamy lace dresses I have ever seen, and has sparked the need for such dresses even more for this season. One of my favourite inspirations when it comes to wearing a lace dress, is this outfit worn by Chanel Iman. I love, love, love the bohemian details such as the floppy hat, the light brown bag and heels and that lovely necklace. This is the perfect outfit for a festival!
Chloë Sevigny has opted for a slightly different and more contrasting look with this outfit. Her cute, crisp and white lace dress stands out against her black, chunky shoes. The flaming, red lipstick is such a great detail against the black/white combination. They don't call Chloë Sevigny a style icon for nothing!
Is the lace dress an essential piece in your summer wardrobe? If so, how do you style it?
