Editor’s note: I’m away this week. Helping me out are some of my blogging friends. Because I commission these posts and these bloggers are helping me to keep my blog running while I’m away from regular duties, I’ll also be paying them for their contributions. Today, say hello to the lovely Melinda from Shop Me Chic.
Lace is one of those iconic textures that seems to always be on trend in the Autumn Winter months.
While it is traditionally quite a delicate texture, lace doesn’t just have to be for the feminine and frilly lovers, for a more edgy look pair it with leather (which is one of the 10 trends Nikki named for Autumn) or look for a lace piece in a brighter hue to make a bold statement.
If you are new to lace or not quite sure if it is for you, ease it into your wardrobe with subtle pieces or accessories – think lace shoes or accessories or choose a piece which has a lace feature (like this Oasis Lace Sleeve Skater Dress from ASOS).
Personally I’m a “less is more” kind of girl when it comes to lace, for fear of stepping out in public resembling a doily but as always, it’s about finding what works best for you and as Nikki says “Forget the rules, write your own!” (Which is a mantra I live by daily – and ‘wear’ on my phone with my Styling You case!).
