Lace has been a huge trend from the runways since spring 2011. Lace embellishment, overlays and edgings have been popping up throughout the year on apparel, shoes, handbags and even jewelry. As lace is found throughout stores for the fall season, it is also popping up in resort collections for 2012. Not only has lace been found in cruise resort 2012 collections, the garments have already appeared on the red carpet by the likes of Anne Hathaway!
Since resort/cruise collections are usually a snapshot into spring, it is safe to say lace will continue well into 2012. In fact, lace has already been spotted in the spring 2012 collections which have graced the runways in Berlin and Sydney. This means one of the best investment purchases a Fashion-savvy shopper can make right now is to buy lace. Anything lace!
There are many ways to wear the lace trend right now and into the upcoming seasons. If you love lace go for a lace overlay gown or dress such as the one Anne Hathaway is wearing from the resort 2012 Alexander McQueen collection in the photo below. Another way to wear lace is to use it as an accent. Why not pair lace high heels with a solid black dress?
Jewelers have also latched onto the lace trend with either fabric incorporated into the overall design of a piece or metal forced into the shape or pattern of lace. The one thing to remember when purchasing a lace item for the lace trend is to look for an item you can wear in any weather with the addition of a jacket or scarf for cooler weather. Or make it easy and choose an accessory! Happy shopping and stay fabulous
