Light Lace & Crochet A White Hot Trend

Delicate Drama

Don’t leave the brides to have all the fun this summer, because pretty white lace is yours for the taking and wearing in so many modern ways. Most summer fashion lovers are partial to a bit of white crochet, lace or eyelet infused in their warm weather wardrobe, because of the way it brings out a gorgeous glow and blends subtle with seductive like no other fabric.

Nice And Light

Instead of the harsh, masculine white separates we’ve seen so much of this summer, Olivia Palermo shows white can be ultra-femme. It’s all about details, and wearing an all white look is done best with details of sheer lace and crochet. These runway inspirations give you a feeling of both ease and sensuality, and are oh-so flattering to bronzed skin so get that shimmery lotion ready.

How To Wear

When lace is done right, it never looks cheap. Don’t opt for poorly constructed, cheap stretch lace pieces that will look tacky. Instead, go for more structured, large-scale lace prints or crochet. This Valentino runway look shows how lace and florals can mix on the large scale for a high-end look, so go for affordable but well made pieces if choosing white textures. Or, opt for a fun white crochet piece as a simple bikini cover up and you’re all set.
