Fairchild Archive Let's talk about lace. It may seem counter-intuitive when you're more concerned with pulling your parka out of storage during the winter months than shopping for little white lace dresses, but I'm here to tell you that lace can totally be cold-weather-appropriate! Really, lace has become season-less.
No. 21, Valentino, and Erdem always have the best lace looks, all year round. Follow their lead and you'll be able to wear lace to every event--from now until you peel your tights off for the summer.
Lace Pants: Follow No. 21 (above) and wear lace to work: Pants in a darker lace make the look perfectly season (and office!) appropriate.Fairchild Archive
Lace Appliqués: Take Valentino's lead for a holiday cocktail party: a bright dress with a feminine lace detail makes every occasion more special.
Sheer yet Covered: For a black-tie event, go for Erdem's look: Sheer black lace makes it fun and flirty, while the long sleeves and high neck keep the look elegant.
