What is the first thing you think about when you think of a lace shirt? Most people would either envision Grandma Mabel's favorite blouse or perhaps, a revealing top that may expose a few internal organs. Many times, lace clothing is either on one side of the extreme or the other... and if your style doesn’t fit into either side of the spectrum, you may feel like wearing lace is not in the cards for you. If not that, then you've probably had to force it to work for your taste. Either way, we have a dilemma that a Chelbé Fashions lace top can solve.
So what makes this lace special? First off, can we talk about the fact that this is made for tall queens? We are HERE for the extra fabric that caters to the longer arms and torsos of the world. Secondly, let's take a moment to appreciate the durability of this fabric (take however long you need, I'll be here). Don't be fooled- not all lace is flimsy and ready to disappear into thin air. Not only is it sturdy, but this lace gives the perfect amount of peek-a-boo through the fabric (you won't have to worry about exposing any internal organs in this, I promise).
As you can see, this shirt is surpassing expectations... and to top everything off, the fact that this is a button down collared shirt opens up the versatility of this top. It can be buttoned up as high or low as preferred (so you can make it as sexy or conservative as you want), it can be belted or tucked in, it can be worn underneath a sleeveless scoop neck dress... there's just so much that can be done! And since the fabric is lace, you can have fun with it by wearing different colored tanks underneath to peep through! With a shirt like this, there is basically a plethora of styling options.
The way that I see it, there is no losing in this top. It has the perfect balance of sexy and conservative and I’m not mad at it. And just like that, the lace dilemma is solved. I just wish I had this top in my closet sooner!
P.S. this shirt also comes in white. If you ask me, you can never have too many colors in this top. Just sayin'.
