Laced


via CoCo Kelly

I decided to announce the 4Sisters1Closet giveaway yesterday because, well, I just couldn’t keep the secret any longer. Our regular Trend Watch Wednesday posts will resume next week, but I just couldn’t stand NOT talking trends at all this week.

All of you fashionistas out there are probably very aware of the lace trend that started back in the spring and is still going strong this fall. Although I don’t own a ton of lacy garments, I love the feminine, vintage vibes it throws out.

Stores like Topshop and Ruche have offer tons of options when it comes to choosing the right lace for your closet.

A few tips for doing lace right from the pros, courtesy of GoGirl Magazine:

-"Lace works best with something boyish: when there’s a masculine touch, the look goes from whimsical to cool and edgy"- Emma Cook, Designer

-"Lace is great for layering to create texture and depth in an otherwise bland outfit. Try layering black lace over black chiffon or a pale pink slip dress or white lace over more white."- Amanda Harlech, Muse and Consultant to Karl Lagerfeld

-"Mix lace into your daytime wardrobe and style it in a less predictable way."- Nanette Lepore, Designer

-A great go-to lace look? “A lace cami with high-waisted trousers…stunning.”- Kelly Harrington, Designer, H&M

Lace. Give it a try.

Be blessed, lovelies-
