There is perhaps no greater signal of summer than the presence of white lace. The frothy fabric is lightweight and adds a feminine touch to any ensemble.

For summer, we like the idea of pairing a lace skirt with a white, belted blouse and delicate gold jewelry. To finish the beachside getaway look, a pale blue slide offers a minimalist take.

Taking the girly piece into fall is a little trickier. A chunky, oversized sweater in an autumnal color makes it less precious. Rich accessories like a suede bucket bag—you’re going to want to pick up one of these this season—and an embossed Chelsea boot give the skirt some heft, while still making a powerful statement.
