City Pulse

Fashion month is over and we can’t help but to notice ladies in lace popping up all over the place. Not just in its usual context of lingerie or small insert details. Were talking complete dresses, shoes, and accessories dipped entirely in lace.

Worn just right and lace can be an inspiration behind a plethora of moods. Just don’t get carried away, there is an ultra thin line between seductive and just plain trashy. If it looks way to risqué and simulates a bedroom ensemble, keep it there. Try channeling your inner seductress or your favorite film noir star (like my current inspiration: Marlene Dietrich) and match a Maje metro lace T-shirt with a black pencil skirt and structured blazer, oh and don’t forget to throw in a pair of sky-high pumps for good measure.

Remember when wearing lace keep it simple and clean. There is so much romantic detail in this openwork fabric that mixing and matching lace garments or accessories will be a cinch. A classic approach to this month’s addiction will be all you need to walk the walk of an elegant lady in lace.
