How to Wear Dainty Bow and Lace Dresses Like Jessica Biel and Jennifer Lopez

We used to think lace dresses with bow accents were better reserved for younger actresses. It seemed like fresh faces such as Chloe Grace Moretz or Kiernan Shipka were the only ones who could possibly get away with wearing anything with dainty bow details. But after seeing Jessica Biel and Jennifer Lopez rock these bow and lace dresses, we mentally kicked this fashion stereotype.

I mean, can you say anything bad about these two? Their outfits have absolutely no traces of juvenile flair!

The 34-year-old — with hubby Justin Timberlake in tow, of course — attended the Tribeca Film Festival in this Self Portrait Pre-Fall 2016 lace LBD accentuated with a dainty bow at the neckline. The actress kept the look monochrome by pairing it with black t-bar pumps. We would have preferred a bolder lip color for this look as Jessica looked a tad pale in contrast to the dress but other than that, she looked spot-on.

2. Jennifer Lopez

The 46-year-old donned a similar dress for a TV guesting. In true JLo fashion, she made the frock look edgier by teaming it up with a pair of knee-high boots.

Picking between these two looks is hard! We think both celebs did a great job wearing this trend. We think Jessica had a more feminine look going on while Jennifer made sure the dress stood out with some edgier styling.

But what do you think? Whose styling do you prefer?
