[L-R: Lace cut-outs on Olivia Wilde, lace+leather on Kristen Bell and all-over lace on Diane Kruger]
Cool Lace Accents:
Lace happens to be one of my favorite textures, especially when pairing with leathers and silks. Designers everywhere are adding lace accents (with Olivia Wilde’s Stella McCartney dress, above) and overlays (Diane Kruger in Erdem lace overlay) to all shapes and cuts on a variety of fabrics.
Secret Stylist Tip: A cooler, more modern lace paired with leather toughens up a look giving off a chic edge rather than a girly, cutesy feel. Try the look in a single piece like Kristen Bell’s Valentino leather&lace dress.
