In Part Three, we shared the versatile yet stylish summer shorts: white denim cutoffs. Today, I want to talk about its innocent ‘sister’: white lace shorts.

Lace is so delicate and feminine, often associated with special occasions like wedding, or used in home decor. For daily wear, we may see it most in undergarments and sleepwear. Wearing it out, especially daytime appropriate, can be tricky.

My favorite way to style lace shorts is with a military shirt or leather jacket. But when it’s sweltering outside, pairing them with a crisp white top or airy tank is a better idea, like today’s featured ladies did, also as a nod to the white on white trend this season.

For girly and romantic outfits like these, accessories are key to get balanced, be it a tough ankle boot, rich earthy brown bag or futuristic mirror sunglasses. They give the look a more wearable and down to earth vibe.

These outfits are great for a variety of summer activities: music festival, road trip, backyard BBQ, hanging out with friends or just strolling around the town.
