Lace has lost it's traditionally pure disposition this season. Designers such as Roberto Cavalli, Rochas and Erdem artfully patchworked Chantilly, guipure and filigree on the sheerest of fabrics for a look that's more sultry than sweet. How do you take this from runway to reality?
For accessories, earthy tones of tan and textured suedes anchor a look that might otherwise look too ''frilly''. Mix up shades of slate grey with butter, cream and vanilla. And a pair of distressed denims will add a playful punctuation to your look.
Lace is elegant and summery, you should own a few pieces for your summer wardrobe.
