Lace and especially broderie anglaise has a romantic and “girly” feel to it. I remember wearing a gorgeous white broderie anglaise dress as a child. I loved it and was very sad when I finally grew too big to wear it.
Lace and broderie anglaise can be worn in a sophisticated and grown up way. How I interpret the look.
This depends on what other items you team it with and the accessories you use to finish the look.
I have teamed this very pretty 3/4 sleeve white top by WinserLondon with a tailored masculine style leather jacket and slim leg trousers.
I am pushing the boat out and being adventurous, for me anyway, with my shoes. They are gladiator style sandals with a block heel. They have relatively high fronts and fasten round the ankles. This offers sufficient support to avoid the “wobble factor”.
Location: The beautiful Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. Wonderful walks, sit in the gardens and have a picnic or take lunch or tea in the restaurant.
You can see the top in greater detail above worn with one of my favourite sun hats.
Nice! I like the idea of pairing a “sweet” item like your lace top with some edgier pieces. Don’t you just love the block heel sandals? So much easier to walk in!!
A wonderful look. You wear it well!
Very classy & stylish!! I think the jacket & shoes make it so!
My favorite outfit of yours
Is your shirt “eyelet”? That’s what I would call in here in the U.S. I have always liked lace and eyelet, as well. I usually go for a cream or beige color.
I think you could all it eyelet. The brand calls it Broderie. I used to sew broderie anglaise many years ago and it was similar to this although often with more intricate patterns (this is obviously machine done) Eyelets can be those things with metal rings round the edges.
I really like the way you put this outfit together – the shoes make it! Very contemporary with and edgy. Rather like a mature Bond girl!
