On the RUNway – Love LACE

Some things never fade from fashion – one of them is lovely lace.

It’s such a fabulous fabric that wearing even just a hint makes women feel more feminine.  You can take lace anywhere,  from the bedroom to the boardroom .  It’s just how you wear it.  Wearing a lace camisole to the office is only appropriate if it’s underneath a blazer or cardigan obviously.  All white lace – too bridal.  Sometimes a lacy garter nobody sees is nice too…for the right situation.

Take a look at recent trends & adapt them to your own style:

Used as both accent and the main attraction, lace was spotted all over the Spring/Summer 2013 runways. katherine

Lace DressesWHY WE LOVE THEM
Lace dresses are often either conservative or coquettish, but these strike a lovely balance. Think Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (can’t you see her in the green one?), not the Queen Mother. Playful colors counter the naughtiness of the lace, creating a sexy attitude that’s anything but stodgy.

HOW TO WEAR THEM
You have to be careful here—lace can get cheap-looking quickly. Choose high-quality material, and pair vibrant hues with shoes in the same color family or in a metallic. Wear hair loose to keep the overall look easy- going and fun.

I may wear vintage lace but lace will never get old for me.
