The Lace Trend

Louis Vuitton Spring Runway 2012 (later worn by Elle Fanning)

Lace was definitely a trend all over the runways for this spring and summer. Lace dresses, lace shoes, lace shorts are all in, and I’m absolutely loving it! This trend is initially inspired by Kate Middleton’s wedding dress (from the oh-so popular Royal Wedding in 2011), and the numerous other lace pieces the prince’s bride has worn. Now it’s the in-pattern (or texture) of the summer! I mean, who doesn’t want to follow in royalty’s footsteps! Keep Reading for pictures, lace clothing pieces and more…

What You Can Wear

Forever 21 Lace Shorts w/ Belt, $20

Urban Outfitters Pins and Needles Lace Tap Shorts, $49

Free People Scalloped Lace Shorts, $78

Aren’t all these shorts gorgeous? I’m drooling on the pink ones from Free people, and the ones delicate cream ones from Urban Outfitters. I own the ones above from Forever 21, and theyare even cuter in person! I definitely think that if  you’re like the lace trend, you should get a pair. I think lace shorts have quite the paettern themselves, so I suggest pairing with a neutral blouse. My favorite top to pair the shorts with is a sheer white, flowy button up.

Shopbop BB Dakota Macyn Laced Tiered Skirt, $95.

Urban Outfitters Coincidence & Chance Revel Dress, on sale from $79 to $39

I love this skirt from Shopbop (on the right). I think it’s very classy and simple, but very feminine and cute! And the lace is delicate and pretty.

I absolutely love Urban Outfitters (besides the price), especially their dresses, and this one on the left is no exception. The bright red color (it also comes in white, blue and green) just adds to the beauty of the lace.

I think I’ve seen enough lace for today, how about you? What do you think of this trend, and if you like it, what are your favorite pieces?
