Lace is the ultimate feminine fabric – from its delicate design to the flash of flesh it shows, it’s great for every occasion.
Incidentally, it’s also the perfect way to work texture for spring. Whether you choose a luxe lace dress for a glamorous night on the town, a lovely lace top for a dinner with a hot guy or a pair of shorts with a subtle lace trim, it’s a sure-fire way of adding chic charm to your summer style.
And what do you know, it’s also one of this season’s hottest trends. If you haven’t already, we reckon it’s high time to embrace the lace, and we’ve scoured the rails of our favourite online stores to find the five fabbest pieces on offer.
