Style Me Saturday: Lovely Lace

A reader wrote in wondering if she could get some ideas on how to style this gorgeous Carmen Marc Valvo lace pencil skirt that she recently purchased. She's 26, works in academia, and tends to dress fairly conservatively. She also wanted some ideas on how to style it for holiday parties or date nights.

This first look is my favorite and would work easily for a holiday party or a night on the town. The top (which should be tucked in) does come in other colors but I liked the soft pink paired with the black and ivory skirt. (Tights could also be added if you like.)

This second look adds a bit more color with this dark red top (tucked in, of course), and I could see this outfit easily transitioning from work to a holiday party.

I always love the idea of a slim sweater with a pencil skirt (very Jennifer Aniston), and this grey version from Express would work perfectly.

Another great option for date night - this flouncy top from Ann Taylor Loft is a little flirty and so cute in person.

And finally, another one of my favorites - the classic black fitted turtleneck OR a blousy black silk shirt. Both are classic and in my opinion, incredibly chic (and really allow the gorgeous lace detailing on the skirt to stand out).
