So timeless, lace didn’t leave the runway with the Holidays and is marching strongly into the Spring/Summer Season. Moreover, it is becoming one of the best fitting trends to the fast pace of modern living where it is so important to be 24-hour ready, for you and your outfit.

Combination of elegance and seductiveness makes lace perfect for a day-to-night look. Classic and sophisticated it works great in an office environment adding just enough edge to a business attire while being so chic and sexy it is definitely irreplaceable for an evening ensemble. Now all-over-lace dress with a jacket or a cardigan is the ultimate ready-to-work outfit that easily transforms into a “night-out” with the help of some jewelry and a clutch. Even smaller lace pieces like a lace top or a skirt will work for you the same way making your look appropriate pretty much for any occasion.

If last fall lace was mostly black this time spring gave it its colorful injections and now it is coming in a wide range of vibrant hues. Blue, orange, yellow and the brightest white work beautifully in this delicate fabric.

Guess? by Marciano and BCBG Max Azria have some amazing lace pieces in their collection. Some of my favorites are definitely Beti Lace Crochet dress ($248) and Rory dress ($248). Though if you don’t want to splurge then one of your best bets is MANGO; the A-line lace dress is a great more affordable ($94.99) option.

Interesting fact.
The term 'lace' is used by the British to refer to the gold bands sewn onto the sleeves of naval officers' uniforms to indicate rank.
