Lace at the Office-Is it Appropriate or Not?

Lace is a very tricky material to wear in professional settings. Anything that is see through is entirely inappropriate and anything that pretends to be see through (flesh colored) is inappropriate. So what is a girl to do who wants to stay on trend, be girly, yet remain office suitable? Well, I searched and searched and am confident I found some lace options that can stand up to most professional environments. Obviously you need to refer to your dress code first to make sure you’re in the clear. Also, use common sense; if you work in an extremely conservative industry, these may not fly.

        Hi Sandra,
        It’s hard to say without seeing a picture of the dress. It sounds a little over the top for this type of event but I’m not going to rule it out. :) Thanks for asking.
