Whether it's on feminine day dresses or elaborate evening gowns, lace is summer’s favourite trend (next to pastels, of course). From subtle inserts to head-to-toe cover, this season’s offerings have something for everyone.
The trick lies in the balancing the fabric play - try pairing a lightweight blouse with neutral-hued pants for a casual brunch. Or mix it up with sexy fabrics like leather and velvet for an edgy evening look.
You don’t need to go for the high-octane drama of a Valentino dress or a Marchesa gown to work the trend.
