Embrace the Lace

The 1970s are huge this fall! Which means vintage lace is making a comeback. But we want to make sure you avoid looking like a doily on grandmas end table, and too much or too elaborate lace will do such.

The catwalks for this fall were filled with lace details and garments, some of our favorite looks included…

But the lace look is easier said than done. To much lace makes you look like a bride-to-be, or inappropriate placement makes you look trashy like Hayden Pannitere (we’re not a fan of the lace cutouts).

But you do want to get noticed in your lace! We suggest subtle details or fun colors to play up this 70s trend. Christopher Kane had some vibrant colors on the catwalk recently, but neon green lace is a big no-no for an everyday look.

Instead try another, more sublte look to play up your favorite color.

We especially love this BCBG top because the lace trim in the front is minimal and brings the color aspect into the trend. Pair with a pair of leather leggings, and you can fully embrace the leather and lace trend!

Lace is big for fall, and you want to avoid making this fall trend look too summer-y. This skirt from Zara is a great way to do so.

The knee length skirt in a brown lace is a great way to incorporate this trend into your fall wardrobe. Pair it with a turtleneck and you’re good to go!
