{PEEK-A-BOO} Ooh to the La..La..LACE! // Fizzy Fashion (Vol. 3)


Lace, Sheer, Cut-Outs, Low-Backs,
Off-the-Shoulder, Strapless, Corsets...

All of these styles and trends have something in common. They all give the illusion or the idea of LINGERIE so of course anyone is going to look incredibly sexy! A turtle neck or a baggy sweatshirt will give the opposite affect so throw those into the Goodwill or sick day pile. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought these styling tips would be very appropriate.
(Your MAN will thank me later!)

When you layer with lace or something sheer you won't feel too covered or bulky even in warmer weather. You can feel comfy and confident with a couple of thin layers rather than putting it all out there with one simple blouse.

Lace is a new thriving trend that can be used to compliment your wardrobe in many ways. A lace top, jacket, skirt, or vest are great options. Partner a lace top with denim or a bold color to off-set the sweet look of the delicate lace. I love to wear this lace cardigan from Charlotte Russe with skinny jeans and a saucy strapless top.

A combination of sweet and spicy
is the best kind of FLAVOR!

An off-the-shoulder top or a boat neck blouse will show off a little shoulder or arm without exposing all of the goods.

New styles in stores are incorporating the cut-out trend or a sheer low-back. I've seen a number of cute cardigans with a crocheted pattern on just the back for added interest. Matching a look like this with a basic tee will instantly pull your look together. The outfit will say that you thought about your style without having to try too hard.

Going strapless or wearing a corset style can be intimidating sometimes. But you can get the same look with a fitted and flowy strapless cotton top like the one I'm wearing.

Check out my grey strapless look: 1). It's fitted on the bust, so it stays up. 2). It has gatherings and pleats for some visual interest. 3). It flows away from the body and hits me right at the hip. 4). It gives a little more viewing of the cleavage, so it's only an evening top!

These are some of the best tricks in looking sweetly smokin'!
