There’s no denying that summer fashion certainly has its perks with the colorful sundresses, sky-high wedges and floppy sun hats. That being said, fall fashion has unquestionably been on my mind with the much-needed drop in temperatures here in New York. With thoughts of leather boots and Burberry jackets running through my mind, you can imagine my excitement as I spotted this week’s Fashionista rocking one of my fall favorites and giving me some summer inspiration.
Lace has been a huge hit with brands such as Dolce & Gabbana presenting lace dresses on the runway and Topshop displaying an array of lace skirts. Lace has also become a celebrity favorite on the red carpet; who can forget Mila Kunis at The Oscars in that stunning lavender dress with the gorgeous lace detailing? With its lightweight and breezy fabric, it’s no wonder that lace has made its way into a summer essential.
This Fashionista showed off her love of lace in an adorable pair of white floral lace shorts. She paired them with a light wash jean tank top with silver stud accents on the pocket. These shorts are an excellent representation of this trend. The lace adds an interesting texture to the outfit, while the simple color lets the beautiful lace detailing speak for itself. This outfit is perfectly composed, with the sweetness of the lace shorts balancing out the edgy stud features on the shirt.
If you’re looking to incorporate some lace pieces into your own wardrobe a great place to start is with a lace cardigan. This cardigan will provide a seamless transition from summer to fall. Wear it now on a chilly night with shorts and wear it later with your favorite jeans and heels. If you are as lace-crazed as I am, try an all over lace dress like this one from Urban Outfitters. Pair with some colorful bangles and a statement necklace and you’ll be the envy of every Fashionista.
Lace exudes a certain amount of whimsy and adds excitement to any outfit making it a must-have in every Fashionista’s closet. With the revival of lace you can leave all those thoughts of your grandmother’s doilies behind and get on board with a trend that’s sure to last.
