Trend: Lace

Lace is a trend we still can’t get over. It had a strong presence last summer and this year it’s back after Valentino, Elie Saab and Miu Miu all brought innovation into the mix with over sized reworks, eyelet patterns, and the cool awkward cute look.

If you’re like me, love lace and bought into this trend last year, but don’t like to wear head to toe pretty, here are a few tips on how to refresh your lacey numbers. Layer your lace with a bright color pop of Neon! A bright neon vest or swimsuit under a lacey dress to give it a little more energy and then finish it off with one statement bracelet

Mix your pretty pieces with some edge; vintage tee’s over lace skirts and shorts for that tomboy look

Items: Daisy Embroidered Mesh Short, Vintage Loves Vintage Tees, Luke Ankle Boot



How would you update your lace?

I absolutely love lace, too! I was big into it last year & will be big into this year as well!

I will probably never get over lace details! Love mixing lace and leather to break up the head=to-toe lace look. Your neon idea is brilliant. Now I’m all inspired to go change into something lacey!

those mesh daisy shorts are amazing !!!!!


Neon and lace, I want to try this!


I bet no one recognized her from Feb’s catalog! She looks so different fresh faced! wow!


Love this! Great spring inspiration. I like how delicate lace makes you feel, but I’m to a more casual dresser but teaming it with boy tees is a good idea! Thank you Jemma
