HOW TO: LACE

From the ateliers of Chanel to the runways donned by Versace and Balmain – there is simply something so irresistible surrounding the notion of lace. Perhaps it’s the fact that it appears just as fitting on the catwalk as it does on the sidewalk – fetching coffee or collecting the morning paper.

Of course, it has been reinvented,time after time,to coincide with a modernised adaptation of the household trend and despite receiving update upon update, lace is always sure to resurface.

And here is why:

Here, we discuss Lace’s New Mood and the laced ensembles we’re loving this season

SEMI SHEERNESS

There is a specific appeal when it sheer ensembles. Whether it dictates style or femininity, there is definitely a modernised edge involved which allows sheerness to step in the right direction. When adapted in lace,a semi sheer outfit boasts that high-class vintage approach that we all long for, especially when it comes to donning a lace ensemble. This semi-sheer number by AliceMcCall, treads in an elegant path ensuring a modern-take on lace. Pair with a black heel accordingly for a formal approach, or a beige sandal come Summer.

ASYMMETRIC HEMLINES 

It was Versace that made the asymmetric lace hemline their own, with a cue of A -list designers destined to follow. Come Haute Couture Week,lace is a shoe in for reappearing on the designer catwalk –evoking a cult of trends and designer adaptations alike, surrounding the technique of the multi-length hemline. This asymmetric ensemble by ACLER, acts as the ultimate wardrobe staple –with a bell sleeve and flattering empire waistline,it is the perfect occasion piece. Straight hemlines are over – this season, we’re deeming asymmetric hems the cult trend to watch.

HEADLINER COLOURWAYS

If you’re going to turn heads in lace there is no better avenue to turndown, than adopting headliner colourways. We suggest opting for a lighter hue to ease the transition into coloured lace. For example, this piece by Asilio the Label depicts an easy tone for our lace lovers,offering a spring-like ensemble in this fitted midi-length dress. With an ankle- length hemline and exposed shoulders, this piece is the definition of modernised lace. How do you wear it? We believe a dress like this is made to seen, pair it with a colour-coordinating heel and bold jewellery to really show it off.

THE STYLE TO KNOW: THE PLAYSUIT 

If you’re in tune with your style know-how and regularly scale the internet for in coming trends,then we’re sure you’re familiar with the cult following when it comes to the humble playsuit. Considered as the style that has been around for decades, just like lace, the playsuit has undergone countless adaptations to ensure it was received how it is today. When it comes to a playsuit constructed from lace there is simply not in e to think about it, it is as easy as – see it – buy it – wear it, with pride of course. This pink hue ensemble by Alice McCall embodies everything that we love when it comes to playsuits; off the shoulder:check. Pastel colour way: check. Bell sleeve: check. Style this item perfectly with a tie-up heel and contrasting clutch.
