Why we love lace


Why do we love lace? Because it’s just so pretty! From classic vintage  to crisp, sheer and modern; lace is a versatile fabric that easily adds a delicate twist to an outfit.

I spent some time searching bidorbuy for some lace-y lovelies to show you. Lace is huge this Autumn and, if that isn’t a good enough reason for you to wear it, these precious pieces might be:

Lace can feel a little stuffy, so if you don’t want to look like your grandmother’s doily:

  1. Stick to one lace item per outfit
  2. I’d stay away from wearing jewellery with lace altogether but if you must, keep it minimal and modern
  3. Use a monochrome combination in your outfit or stick to neutrals.

Tell me about your loveliest lace piece and how you love to wear it
