When you think of a fabric that makes a woman feel ultra-feminine, ladylike and sexy all at the same time, lace comes to mind. We saw lace galore on the Spring-Summer runways in soft pastel-coloured pieces and this trend continues well into Autumn-Winter with a darker palette. One of Fall’s most romantic trends, this feminine fabric remains a favourite among designers like Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton and Anna Sui who use lace extensively to add that extra glamour and sex appeal to their collections. Style icons like Kate Middleton, Freida Pinto and Deepika Padukone made lace ‘the’ quintessential style statement on the red carpet. However, lacy numbers aren’t meant for just romantic evenings as their versatility makes them a great addition to your everyday wardrobe. Try the sweaters with your favourite wide-leg trousers and the skirts with fitted button-downs to balance out the lace’s girliness. Defy expectations by avoiding the neutral route, and embrace lace in hot hues like shocking pink and bright blues. We have put together key looks that make a serious style statement with lacy numbers.
