Fall in love with fashion’s most feminine fabric – lace.
Cast off images of fusty filigree necklines and vampish 80s Gothica – this season’s lace redux is a much breezier affair.
Louis Vuitton’s girlish guipure and Prada’s broderie anglaise made for a modern ingenue; while Simone Rocha’s trapped lace skirts co-opted Victoriana into street fashion.
The new mantra?
This lace deserves to be seen.
* Chasten the fabric’s femininity with masculine accents or sharp tailoring.
* Pair with contrasting textures like cashmere or leather for visual interest.
* Layer a lace top with a neon underpinning for instant trend appeal.
* A broderie anglaise skirt, heels and simple tee make for cute cocktail wear. Add a peplum for extra style snaps.
