How To Wear: Lace Shorts

Alexander Wang totally ignited this trend back in Spring 2010, and since then, it has totally taken off with countless celebrities photographed in their lace shorts.

What I love about these shorts is how comfortable they are...I am wearing mine as I blog right now! I feel there are two ways to wear the shorts: dressy or casual. For a dressy look, I really like Kristin Cavallari's look with a silky, black tank... I would probably also add a blazer and wear it with some high heels for a night out. You want the blazer length to be just above the short length, like Emma Watson did, any longer and it won't look like you're wearing any pants! For a more casual approach, I love what Ashley Greene did: I love mixing lace and army green. The lace shorts would also look great with a Lauren Moshi and/or Wildfox top, and a jean jacket...swap out your heels for combat/motorcycle boots.

I know, our summer is short lived...but you can totally wear these for fall/winter by adding some black opaque tights, even under the white shorts... it still looks good! Keep the tights basic, no patterns, otherwise it may look too costumey. I am picturing my lace shorts with boots, tights, and an oversized sweater for fall! Check out our Free People lace shorts next time you're in!
