We totally love lace and all of the ways, from guipure to cutouts, to incorporate this traditional element into a wedding gown. So today, we’re taking a look at how to add lace as a second layer, a modern trend that is versatile, unique, and dazzling. Check out why we think you’ll love to layer in lace in your Anomalie wedding dress.

Chantilly lace samples used for second layer in wedding dress

Chantilly lace is perfect for layering.

As a second layer, lace creates contrast with a top layer of lace, adding depth and detail to ballgown or fit-and-flare gowns. Typically, our stylists will recommend a softer chantilly lace with an all-over repeating pattern when layering in lace on a dress. 

If you’re dreaming of an exposed corset with no lining, a second layer of lace will add a bit more coverage in the bodice.

Or add skin-toned lining in the bodice with contrasting layers of lace to highlight the different textures and patterns of each lace. When you design a custom wedding gown with Anomalie, our stylists will help you pick the perfect complementary lace patterns.

Because your Anomalie stylist might recommend ballgown or fit-and-flare gowns for layering in lace, consider a tiered skirt to add a second layer of lace. This is a fun way to add texture and movement for dancing the night away!

Stylist Pro Tip: Of course, lace isn’t the only fabric you can layer in your dress. For a touch of glitz and glamour, a second layer of sparkle tulle will make your custom Anomalie wedding gown shine. Let us help you design a dress you’ll love!
