What to Wear Instead: Nonstretchy Lace Pieces
Elastic lace can look tacky, warns Adam, especially when it's pulled taut across your backside or thighs. Colored varieties (especially in shades of bright red, yellow or pink) can also look cheap. Opt for a lined lace pencil skirt, a feminine cardigan with lace accents, or a black lace cocktail dress for a party—like this Bordeaux-colored dress from L'Wren Scott.
