Ace with Lace


This week’s trend report by Farrah Eman was spotted all over the Spring 2013 runways, and it might make you fall in love with lace all over again.


You can certainly infuse this timeless trend into chic and glamour or urban and attitude, inspired by the following collections.


Transcend into an urban chic look with Valentino’s round-necked crocheted lace jacket featuring concealed press stud buttons and darts for a feminine shape while these leggings will put a spring in your step! Vero Moda’s twist on a sporty jacket and bomber blazer balances femininity with functionality. Complement the look with these printed palazzo pants in abstract spring print hues. Look flatteringly smart in tailored high-waisted pants featuring a wide-leg cut with this Alexander McQueen built-in lapel lace jacket.


Bring instant pizzazz to your cocktail-ready look with this Emilio Pucci one-shoulder blue lace dress with an asymmetrical neckline. Or what about this high-waisted trail skirt by Safiyaa which adds modesty and screams elegance. Grey matches well with red as showcased in the above bell bottoms ensemble – red pants matched with a grey bodice featuring a lacy overlay. Accessorise with statement arm candies and heels in matching hues to bring the whole look together.


This intense-red Valentino lace jumpsuit with detachable cape will make you stand out from the crowd. Glam up with gilded accessories, such as this Tory Burch clutch and Nine West criss-cross platform sandals in metallic gold. You can never go out of style in this vintage-inspired sky blue jumpsuit by Paul & Joe featuring a pretty lacy back – simply darling for garden parties. You can match that with a floral orange flap handbag and white gold carved coral flower earrings. An epitome of elegance is this floor-length pale-blush Valentino lace gown with ruche sleeves and belted waist. It is just gorgeous with a Miss Selfridge clutch in cream and silver, and pearl drop earrings.
