Trend: Lace

If there is one fabric that seems to best define a woman, it’s lace. Delicate and daring, the designs are exquisite, the feel is both dainty and strong.

The vintage quality adds a unique touch to modern designs, and can add a variety of texture and complexity to something simple.

Colors can be beautiful, but nothing is more powerful than a French lace in black.

Designers are on board for lace this season, taking lace into new directions, applying it to both beauty and ready to wear.  







Although I’m not a fan of overdone nails, a black lace appliqué on a manicured nail looks chic and fresh, seen at both Reem Acra and Tracy Reese shows. Roberto Cavalli designed a perfect, stiletto bootie in lace and patent leather, t-strap design.

Gorgeous eye make-up in lace adds a dramatic look for an evening out. Love and adored in all decades, a lace eye can take you to fashion icon status.  Lace stockings add texture and elegance to any black dress or pair of mini shorts.

Although it may not be the most appropriate look for summer, add a little lace to your wardrobe for fall, and take your look up a notch on the drama meter.
