As the heat of the summer starts to simmer down, don’t let your look start to lack. Meet fall head on with those transitional trends that carry you seamlessly from the warmer weather to the cool of winter — and start with lace. If your first inclination is to hesitate, let’s talk. Don’t let this dainty fabric fool you, it’s come a long way since the decorative doily, or the cream colored curtains in your great-aunt’s living room. Today’s lacy looks are flirty, feminine, sometimes even edgy, but — when done right — always becoming and on-trend. So keep reading, and let us show you why you too should look to lace.
Party Perfection. When you’re hitting the evening party circuit this year, consider donning something a little spicier than your LBD of season’s past. Choose an elongating and sophisticated lace-topped jumpsuit for a notice-me sleek silhouette, like this one from BCBGMAXAZARIA at Westside Pavilion ($248). Or, find a little lace black dress for a new take on an old favorite.
Prim and Pretty. A ’50s flair is flattering to all, and a nipped and tucked waist, lace overlay dress slimming and sassy. Wear it now while the weather’s still hot, or pair it with a cute cardigan to take it into late fall. Here’s rust colored dream from Anthropologie at The Oaks ($248).
Classic Couture. Pick traditional with a twist — a timeless black trench entrenched in delicate lace is subtle, sexy and oh-so haute. Jackie O ain’t got nothing on you now. We found this stunner at Burberry in Santa Monica Place ($1,495).
