How to Wear: Lace

how to wear lace
Fashion has always been in love with lace – from sweetly pretty day dresses to sensual see-through blouses. And this season lace trend has grown popular than ever. Lace is everywhere – from shorts to trench coats. Also modern lace spreads across a long line of refined silhouettes and cuts in an enticing colour palette. This summer lace is versatile as never. You don’t need to keep it only for a special occasion, you can wear it every day!

As you can see here I am a big fan of this trend. Here is how to wear lace in summer 2014 for a modern look.


Sugary sweet pastel hues from Burberry’s candy coloured lace collection is one of the hottest trends this summer. Choose from subtle shades of powder blue, lilac, pink or light yellow for an ultra-feminine look.

Head to Toe White

Choose from pretty tops, to elegant ensembles and dainty dresses. There are no limits to the number of ways allowing you integrate the two in your wardrobe. It is a perfect choice for a hot summer day and believe me you won’t end up looking like a bride.

Bold Hues

Don’t be afraid to experiment and make a statement. Bright colours will make you glow and make your outfit young and fresh but still very elegant. It is perfect for a night out or a special occasion.

Sheer Lace

For the ones who wish to stick to the black lace and still want to look trendy choose sheer lace with an entirely new line of transparency. Going from sheer to super-sheer will definitely add a modern twist. It encourages you to show a little more skin while keeping things tasteful and super-stylish. The best way to do it is by playing upon contrast in pairing the light with the heavy. Again best for an evening wear when you want to make a statement.
