LACE IT UP

fashion // July 25, 2011

After attending six weddings this summer, I’ve seen my fair share of white lace. But brides aren’t the only ones donning the feminine, romantic material. Spotted on celebrities and street style stars alike, white lace has become a super versatile material that can be worn every day. Lace dresses really are a year-round piece: wear it in the summer with an open toe wedge; and for winter, pair the sheath with a opaque tights and some booties. I really love the way that Harper’s Bazaar editor Joanna Hillman topped off her winter lace look with a leather jacket. It give an otherwise girly look just the right amount of edge. If you’re not feeling the white, there’s plenty of great colored lace options out there (check out this Lilly Pulitzer light yellow number). If you don’t have a lace dress hanging in your closet yet, check out these options for a start!
