One of my favorite trends for spring is lace. It's so romantic and feminine, so nostalgic, and yet it can be modern and cutting-edge at the same time. Traditionally lace was always white, and though nowadays you can find it in almost any color, I still prefer neutrals for their ability to showcase the texture.
After all, what could be more elegant for spring than a simple white lace dress as shown by Ralph Lauren and Dolce & Gabbana, or a white lace dress with a black sash as shown by Oscar de la Renta? And wouldn't the fun shape of Vivienne Westwood's lace dress and the sparkle or the one by Valentino be overshadowed if they were brightly colored?
So, take part in the bright colors trend of spring 2011 all you want, but when you wear lace, keep it neutral.
Want to wear more lace this spring? Here's some inspiration from the runway.
