Lace & Sequins

Monday, October 24, 2011

While I was working at Express last Fall as a Fashion Expert, I really liked this one look that they had styled on one of the mannequins. It was a sparkly tank under a lace tank. Not only was the effect cool, but it definitely toned down the sequins to make the look perfect for day wear. Don't get me wrong, I have NO problem with wearing sequins by themselves during the work day (been there, done that), but I wanted to try this look again with a grey lace tank. 

Hat: Target
Lace Tank: New York & Company
Sequined Tank: Express
Slacks: New York & Company
Pumps: Famous Footwear

I was reading something the other day that talked about wearing lace to work, and if it was appropriate.  Lace is often affiliated with lingerie or wedding dresses, but I think it's perfectly fine to wear leave to work. I mean I wouldn't recommend the see-through lace-show bra trend for work, unless you work at a fashion-forward company that allows that kind of dress, but how I have this lace tank style, I feel is perfectly accepted for the work place.  What do you guys think?


How do you feel about wearing lace and sequins to work?
