You know the feeling when you’re always in pants and then you slip into a dress that one time your legs are freshly shaven? I feel a girly jolt when I wear my most low-key dress. Imagine slipping into a cute white lace dress. Now that, will take the feeling of extra feminine-ness to the next level.
I love this quote by Susan Sontag that says:
What is the most beautiful in virile men is something feminine; what is most beautiful in feminine women is something masculine.
I feel that we’re all made of many facets and that in clothing especially for women, the blur is radical and appreciated as as women, we don’t try to assert femininity – it’s always there to be accentuated or left in its natural form.
Coming from a more gender-defined country that is Malaysia, being a man is still tied to certain society-approved norms and though within the creative fashion industry and fashion-adoring sets, the boundary can be pushed, the women’s fashion world is much more adventurous and is more welcoming to mixture of the masculine and feminine elements. These are just man-made concepts when in comes to clothing, in a way. It has nothing to do with how a person internally identifies with a certain gender but through clothing, we, as women, are able to expressed this dualism freely.
My short rant aside, here’s a list of WHITE lace dress styles that I’m quite fond of and may want to try in the near future as I welcome dresses back into my wardrobe that has just too many pants.
Which lace dress style is your favorite? Share below – I’d love to know!
