Have you seen them all over your social media feeds and red carpets and celeb sightings? Lace has been having a moment this season. In particular, lace catsuits (or bodysuits, whatever you like to call them!) have been popular- and I’ve been intrigued. I’m never one to shy away from sheer or the naked/no-pants trend, but I have to say that I have been hesitant to get a lace catsuit (because of the using the restroom issues!) – then I found these lace pants!
In general, I’m a fan of lace in all its variations. It’s classic, it’s edgy, it’s sexy and it’s innocent. And we know how I feel about juxtapositions ( I LOVE THEM! ). So, when the “new” lace trend popped up this season, I knew I wanted in on it; but I wanted to make it my own. I did have a – fear is not the word I’m looking for, but perhaps apprehension- about the catsuit. Again, the using the restroom in public (loves, I also LOVE a jumpsuit but in public you end up alone, naked in the restroom stall with your choices) but also that as many ways as you could layer a lace catsuit (and I’ve seen some chic outfits I’d love to recreate) I wanted to find a fresh take on th lace that would also be a bit versatile.
Here’s why I love these lace pants: they give the feel of the jumpsuit (but can be paired with anything Ala this classic turtle neck here to a button down, a tee, a tank, under a dress, etc!), they come with built in briefs (so you’re covered!), and the ease of wearing (aka you won’t be alone with your choices in a stall!) is unmatched. These lace pants are chic and sexy and on trend. And this lace thing is just perfect.
I understand both rushing into any and every trend, and avoiding them. I also understand waiting till you can find, or style, a version of the trend that makes it feel your own. Lace is such a great trend- it can be so many things, and in this version I love the sheer and edgy and modern lace. (Again, I also love the pants!). You could style this lace in so many ways- and for so many seasons. Perhaps lace is the thing we should all be styling in all of the ways to express all of ourselves. OR perhaps lace is the thing right now- either way, finding your own lace and making it your own- I think that’s the thing!
I’ve linked these exact lace pants below. Note- the rise on me is a bit low, but I love it. And you could tuck into the pants- but this sweater was just a bit too thick to lay flat under the waist band, but it could work!
Are you indulging in any of the lace trends this season? How are you wearing them?
