Trend How-To: Lace

Lace. Of course we have seen this trend before. And keep it coming is all I can say! A favorite with the fashion pack, lace is once again the way forward this season. Featured on the runways and on the pages of Harpers and Elle it appears we simply can’t get enough of this look!

The versatility is perfect for anyone and any season – whether you’re opting for a sultry and sexy style a la Anna Dello Russo or a cute, girlish charm like Olivia Palmero you can be sure to rate highly in the style stakes donned in this elaboration of the ‘sheer’ trend we have seen so much of.

But what’s different I hear you cry!? How about opting for a vintage style look and exploring the options inspired by decades gone by?

By teaming lace with strongly contrasting fabrics and similarly strong statement pieces will instantly decipher the new take on the trend from seasons past. Wear a pair of high-waisted leather shorts or a chunky knitted cardigan to create a major contrast and communicate your personality in what you wear!

Layering, as seen on the Vivienne Tam catwalk pictured will also add a unique twist to your outfit. Perhaps add it as a top-layer to your favorite body-con dress or wear black over a crisp white shirt to create contrast and draw attention to the detailing. Alternatively wear a long sleeved body underneath a classic black cocktail dress for an updated version of our favorite staple item!
