Lace has been a massive trend this season and although the weathers getting chillier now we move into the winter months, it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere soon.
The Autumn/Winter 2010 season is all about playing with different textures and fabrics and mixing it up with embellishments. Already we’ve seen plenty of lace on the catwalk, teamed with leather , velvet and sprinkled with jewelled embellishments; keep it floaty and feminine with pale colours and pearls, or go all gothic and grungy, mixing your lace with heavier, darker materials.
For a floaty, feminine look there are loads of dresses on the high street at the moment, that will have you transported back to sixties style in no time. This Fearne Cotton tunic has a great vintage feel and is perfect for parties, or team with heavy boots and tights for a daytime look.
For an ultra feminine mix of materials check out this Joe Browns layered dress which incorporated satin and lace for an ultimate luxurious outfit. Keeping the whole Twilight theme in mind, try mixing your lace with some on-trend velvet for a look that will have more than just vampires flocking in your direction – this Love Label version with a peter pan collar is perfect for a night time look.
For a cosy, wintertime, lace look then check out the new lace detailed knitwear that’s about at the moment – the lace details show off a little bit of skin for added va-va-voom but are casual enough to wear during the day. I love this knitted jumper from Fearne Cotton, with a super cute lace heart on the back.
If you’re not quite sure about the lace phenomenon, or perhaps the idea of wearing a lace dress in winter fills you with ice-cold dress, then you can still add lace details to your outfit with some bang on trend accessories. These cute shoe boots from Love Label are perfect for a day or evening look, and the mix of leather and lace will make sure you are one stylish lady. I dare you to wear these for a day and not get any compliments! For a cute, girly touch top off your outfit with this lace detail bow headband – a great way to wear the trend without going overboard.
