This is a blog post on how to style a sleek looking shirt, the lace up shirt. There is often a misconception about the lace-up shirt that you have to show a lot of skin when wearing it. This is not true at all. It’s true that there are lace-up shirts out there that will allow you to show some skin and look really sexy, but it’s also true that some are simply designed to look elegant and not require you to show a lot of skin. The following outfit ideas will show you some of the best ways to wear the lace-up shirt I put together.
White lace-up shirt made of chiffon with white denim shorts
I’ll start the list with a refreshing looking outfit that is perfect to wear in summer and spring. Just wear a white chiffon lace-up shirt with denim shorts and white heeled sandals. Actually, a typical chiffon shirt would make this outfit look really good. The lacing design gives the entire outfit a feminine and elegant touch and takes the outfit to a new level.
Gray lace-up shirt with mom jeans & leather jacket
This outfit is a little more complex and looks very stylish and unique. For the top, wear a gray lace-up shirt with a black leather jacket over the shoulders. Pair these pieces with cuffed mom jeans and black suede boots.
Black lace-up blouse with skinny jeans
As mentioned earlier, some lace-up shirts are elegant while others are very sexy. This black lace-up blouse obviously belongs to the latter group. To style a top that already requires a lot of attention, the best strategy is to keep the rest of the outfit simple. One option is to wear the blouse with skinny jeans and black ballerinas.
Black blouse with a white pencil skirt
Here is another black sexy lace top. To wear it elegantly, pair it with a white midi pencil skirt. Black open toe heels to complement this black and white outfit.
White lace-up blouse with black skinny jeans and a felt hat
This outfit idea shows an airy and artistic way of wearing a lace-up blouse. Wear the white lace-up blouse with black skinny jeans. Combine these pieces with black leather boots and a black felt hat. I like this outfit idea so much because it’s not that easy to style a black felt hat so naturally, but it seems like the chemistry between all of the pieces makes the felt hat fit so naturally.
Lace-up camo top with ripped jeans
It is not impossible to dress sexy and tough. Hard but not impossible. As a good example of this, this outfit consists of a camo lace top with ripped jeans. The black strappy sandals are an excellent choice for shoes. A pair of white trainers would have looked nice too, but didn’t bring out the character in the camo top.
Black lace-up shirt dress with gray felt hat
This is not exactly a shirt, but a black lace-up shirt dress. The gray felt hat gives the outfit an artistic touch. For the shoes, I would recommend wearing black leather ankle boots.
Red lace top with black button in front of skirt
This is a work outfit with some creative details. Just wear a red lace-up blouse with a black suede skirt with buttons. Add a pair of stockings, black leather boots and a black felt hat to the equation. Don’t hesitate to wear a felt hat for a work outfit. Although you have to take your hat off when you get to the office, wearing something atypical for work is actually psychologically beneficial. You can think of wearing a felt hat as a trigger for a habitual look. Lay people say you are forced to go to work even if you lack motivation on a particular day.
